If we are talking beginner planes, no question in my mind that the PZ Vapor is the best. Flies its self.

My vapor isn't in the air these days, but once i get a new prop for it it will be flying around my house every day. Its a plane that you never really grow out of. You can fly it all around the house. Rainy day, fly the vapor inside!

Good luck to your son, hope he can pick it up and enjoy the hobby.

My son has already flown it no problem I like the plane so much I just ordered another for myself. Yes I flew it for twenty minutes on one charge with stock battery I was shocked as well. Nothing got hot everything seems happy including the guy who bought it!! Maidened my f22 today it now needs a new nose cone!!!! But flew fantastic as well. For those wondering they fly quite well without the nose cone!!! Pilot ejected safely but seems really POed!!!!

Gentlemen, if you do purchase the plane, make sure that you check to make sure everything is working correctly before flying it. Mine came with a bad ESC and BH will not replace. I love the plane, but I was on with customer-no-service last night for almost 2 hrs and they told me it was operator error. This is unfortunate as I was one of the first planes they received and they won't back up their product.

My problem I found was that when the throttle was turned up, as in to launch, the minute you touched the aileron, elevator or rudder, the throttle would cut off. Just make sure you don't have that problem. I don't want anyone to crash and BH to tell you the problem is operator error.

Happy Flying.

Sorry to here about your trouble. The one we received is the brushless model which has performed without issue. As far as getting through on the phone I used the local number and got someone very quickly. I would give it one more shot perhaps you got a new bee on the phone. Worst case you buy a speed controller. If it's just about the flying I'd just buy one and get back in the sky I think they are really pretty inexpensive. Also I got a quick response sending a pm via this chat group.

Well what a fantastic weekend for rc planes my Raptor and my sons sky surfer both flew great. No electronic troubles nothing negative to report, just two great planes and lots of fun. Hope this type of post is allowed, is anyone out enjoying this hobby besides us I hope so. One more thing the sky surfer attracted five rather large turkey buzzards James had a blast they flew with the sky surfer for quite awhile pretty cool!!!

LOL, I was demonstrating my Lama 400 to my Nephew on Saturday when I clipped a tree and the inner shaft (has about 15 hours on it) snapped and the top rotor set parted ways with the rest of the Helicopter. LOL controlled crash followed.

Good to hear James is having fun. Whats going to be his next venture?
