If you’ve ever imagined yourself in the pilot seat of a great flying RC airplane, the E-flite® FPV Vapor® model can make your dream a reality. Poised at the optimal point on the aircraft, a tiny video camera sends full-color, real-time action back to you on the ground. The view is so immersive that you’ll feel as though you’re actually sitting in the pilot’s seat of the model airplane. Plus, the FPV Vapor ultra micro aircraft is small enough to enjoy in many large indoor spaces, such as a gymnasium or even outdoors in your own backyard. The ultra-lightweight design, combined with its efficient motor system, allows the airplane to have outstanding handling even when it’s flown at slow speed. Which means you can experience First-Person View Flight virtually anytime and anyplace.
You can have the Ready-To-Fly version up in the time it takes to charge the batteries. The Spektrum™ VS1100 ultra micro FPV system is fully installed on the airframe and a Fat Shark Teleporter V4 headset is included. The only thing you have to do to experience FPV flight is charge the batteries.
Fully Assembled Airplane
The UMX FPV Vapor features a completely built, flight ready airframe that’s ultra-lightweight with film-covered carbon fiber construction and modular components that make any necessary repairs easy to complete. The airplane comes equipped with an all-in-one Spektrum 3-channel DSMX receiver/ESC/servo unit.
The UMX FPV Vapor has the Spektrum™ ultra micro FPV camera already installed. It’s a 2-in-1 camera/transmitter unit that features a circular polarized antenna for superior range performance and is powered off the E-flite ultra micro 150mAh 1S 3.7V 25C Li-Po flight battery included.
The RTF version of the UMX FPV Vapor includes the feature rich Fat Shark Teleporter V4 FPV headset. Worn like a set of goggles, inside the headset is a pair of full-color QVGA 320 x 240 LCD displays that receive a wide field of view from the camera onboard the Vapor FPV. The included 5.8GHz SpiroNET circular polarized antenna system has amazing reception. Best of all, the Teleporter V4 FPV headset includes 2-axis digital head tracking that senses your head movement to deliver an even more immersive view point.
The RTF version includes a 4-channel 2.4GHz transmitter with Spektrum™ DSMX® technology that delivers fully proportional throttle, elevator and rudder control.
Batteries and Chargers
The RTF version of the UMX Vapor FPV includes all the batteries you need to fly as soon as possible, including the AAs for the transmitter. The Fat Shark Teleporter V4 headset operates from a 760mAh 2S 7.4V Li-Po battery for long play times and can be recharged using the included AC charger. Both the aircraft and airborne FPV system operate from the same ultra micro 150mAh 1S 3.7V 25C Li-Po battery that can be recharged with the included USB 1S Li-Po charger.
Motor & Propeller
The proven UMX Vapor FPV micro electric drive features a brushed 6.0mm coreless motor that’s geared to efficiently power a 140mm x 45mm propeller. The transparent propeller allows the image quality to be less obstructed.

looks awesome, has to have a nice price tag too.
we can use the fatsharks with other fpv models too. should be a nice entry to fpv for alot of people
the camera/video tx module looks very compact and light, should be fun to take off and mod onto other planes/micro quadrotors

The Night Vapor had 17gr, so the difference will be the compibed of the heavier 150mAh Battery ad the Cam/Tx module.
I'm too lazy to do the math at this time though.
There will also be a BnF version minus the (flight)Tx and the glasses.
The cam/tx unit will be available seperately (although with a platic casing as opposed to the naked version on the Vapor),
as will the glasses, and both together as an "Ultra Micro FPV Set".
This is certainly a game changer, although the fatshark in the bundle is a very "budgety" version with only 320x240px.
I'm curious what range it will have and what else Horizon has in store now that they have set ther minds on FPV.
Hand me my popcorn.
I love how they labeled it "Experience Level: Intermediate", which may well be true as it's quite heavy for the Vapor platform.

Could be worth getting this just to stick the gear in a UM warbird. Will need a second Mustang! Be great in the Trojan too.
Here's the HH vid I just found.

Kind of a crazy idea putting fpv in a vapor!
Would rather see them put it in a larger plane that can take wind a bit better.

interesting how this cannot be touched by FAA's future regulations as long as its flown indoors. i commend HH on their novel thinking.

needs to be available on the night vapor as well, since the calm air of dusk and night time is much nicer for the vapor.
