New Parkzone Night Vapor!

How about this! Parkzone has updated their ever popular Vapor airplane with Modular Parts and LED's mounted to the front of the wing support. Look for this fun new airplane to be arriving in your LHS in Mid-Late June (or October with Parkzone's record.

Godfrey, Daniel! For that price I can build something lighter, with LED's...

Bet it'll sell to the RTF'rs though...

I can't tell, but does the receiver have 1 servo port or is it just an ar6400? It really does look like 1.

Looks like they are out of stock of the regular vapors... perhaps this one could show up as quickly as the new SU did.

It's better built than the first. Module parts make it easyer to repair. The light are tiny whiny and small and bright. PZ looked what was on this forum and "made the so-called improvments" after what the guys did here. I used the Tiny Brite lights on my vapor $19.99. But good to see that PZ is working on improvments. Same price as before which is good. Great work PZ. PAY attention to this site and you will learn what RC folks can do and want. The SUKHOI I like the new paint job but as for the improvments???? the motor is the same the prop is the same. ????

The new Sukhoi uses the same motor as mustang/4-site I think? And yes Kev, it is not an AR6400 but one of the older DSM2 units as used in the Ember 2 and the UMJ3

I got to have one of those, I saw it on Horizon's web site. They will be great at night.

Same here Brotha.

Here is a tip to Horizon if they are listening, DON'T announce a product 3 months in advance.

DO give it a release date and treat it like an I-phone, or the release of the Playstation 3, and stick to that date, I know that problems happen that cannot be forseen, thats why you have all these mediums to communicate (facebook, twitter). Make a simple statement, just keep us in the loop.

End of Rant.
