Ember 2 vs. Night Vapor???

Can anyone tell me what the main differences between the two are, which flies better, and which should I get? Thanks. I am loving my sukhoi, but I want something I can fly in my backyard.

The night vapor is slower and more geared toward indoor. The ember won't stand much breeze, but more than the vapor for sure.

They both work great in my back yard. I fly the Night Vapor late at night while the dog is doing his buisness. With any breeze the Vapor gets knocked around. The Ember can handle a little more. The Ember is faster.

I prefer my NV to the Ember because of the flight envelope you have, day or night, and on full rates it will turn on a dime. I use Hyp. 160s with mine.

If it spins, wear it.

I fly most of my planes on mildly windy days, the Night Vapor is NOT one of them . Great plane for the yard as long as it is dead calm. Doesn't take much to really blow a NV away. Depending on your normal wind conditions and yard, the Ember might be better if you have a fairly large yard. My yard is very small and suits the NV as long as its wind-less. The lights are a real plus and make near total darkness flight low stress. From video I've seen of the Ember, it is quite a bit faster than my Night Vapor.

My yard is a bit less than a half acre, but there are two trees each right smack dab in the middle 1/3 and 2/3's of. the way through the yard. Could the ember fly there?

Trees and planes don't mix. I personally would cut them down.

Haha. Now that's commitment. I'm not so sure cutting down large trees is really worth it just fly around a $50 plane.

Sounds very flyable to me. I fly my NV around the trees in my very small yard

The NV will fly in the average living room or family room, a couple of trees in a half acre shouldn't hurt. But NO wind allowed, that will leave a mark.

The area required for ANY plane, is a function of the pilots ability, within certain limits... When I fist flew my NV I NEEDED lots of room. I now fly in my garage and it's EASY..

I also have an Ember II and the NV is much slower and NEEDS much less room ...
