Ben,

Oh, yeah, the Vapor did all sorts of, shall we say, "uncommanded aerobatic manuevers" - most of which were not possible for the poor thing to do on command. But it's so light that it didn't get hurt very much. I was mostly worried about it getting run-over before I could rescue it from the middle of the street!

I learned a lesson that day. Sure, given that I've got over 100,000 miles of motorcycle-riding under my belt, I am intimately aware of the strong draft that cars create at highway speeds. But for some reason, I didn't think about the fact that even at 10-20 MPH, the turbulence & draft they create is pretty much hurricane/tornado-level for the little Vapor. Even at WOT, it didn't have a chance of pulling itself out of that draft.

Joel

I have seen 1 other clip like it before but they were flying a parkzone se5a.
I will post the link later when I find it again.

It's called "parkzone se5a dashcam" language warning too!

Not happy.
I ordered from Apex RC Products in the first link you provided and they did not respond to my cancellation request. They just shipped it. Last product I buy from them.

Before leaving feedback I would sent them a message and see if they will pay for the return and send you the one that you are willing to buy.

A lot of vendors on eBay respond to orders a lot faster than messages for obvious reasons...sometimes putting the horse before the cart.

Black and red goes to your charger. That is the source. The other white connector on the cable is for the balance port on your charger. Of course the remaining connector goes to your battery.

Basically the cable breaks out the balancing part of your pack as UMX connectors don't have a balance connector per se. If you use an elite charger for UMX they charge and balance through the same connector.

Thanks! Only time I used a charger with the balance plugs was for the super cub. just plugged in the white and it charged.
Anyway, the battery is so low, it would not start a charge. I had to switch to nicad to get some juice into it! It is charging now.
thanks again, I get to make the maiden tomorrow or asap!
