I have that mix on a switch for beginners, but I turn it off for myself. It's just either too much or not enough, much better to do it myself, it's only three channels.

I saw a review: http://rcplane.biz/parkzone-night-vapor-rtf-plane/
that really sparked my interest. But will the BNF version work with my Aurora 9?

No, but you can get a module. Or you can use the rtf tx. Or you can buy a dx5e. All are great options.

I saw a night vapor last night for the first time an hour before midnight and it was ridiculously cool. Definitely need one of these for front yard UFO sightings

I've been flying RC helis for years. I received a Night Vapor for Christmas. I love it. It is so relaxing.

I initially flew the Night Vapor with Rudder on the right stick. I moved it to the left and am comfortable flying Mode 2. I was also comfortable flying mode 4 (rudder on right stick). I just read somewhere that for 3 Chn airplanes, you should assign the Rudder to the right stick so it will make it easier to transition to a 4 Chn Airplane, since turns are usually done with the right stick (aileron).

So, not being a RC Airplane enthusiast what is the recommendation? Do I move the rudder to the right stick, or keep it on the left stick for the 3 chn Night Vapor? I do plan to get a 4 chn airplane in the future.

I would say to leave it on the right stick. On a 4 channel airplane, the ailerons are on the right stick and that is all you need to turn the airplane. The rudder can be added in to fine-tune the turns but that is optional. Many people who fly 4 channel airplanes mix the rudder to the ailerons to get coordinated turns with only the right stick.

If you put the rudder on the right stick on a 3 channel airplane, then there is no learning curve to be able to fly a plane with ailerons.

I have always put the rudder on the right stick for 3 channel. But lately I mix the rudder and ailerons together. I normally fly 4 channel stuff and use both rudder and ailerons at the same time, so I tend to expect some type of turn using either stick.

For learning I would suggest using the right stick. Just my two cents.

What is funny with this mix is if you go right rudder and left aileron, the rudder never moves.....

By the way, model 2 for above.

That makes sense, although I have never used an aileron-to-rudder mix. I like to do that manually, and that gives you the option to do flat turns with rudder and opposite aileron. Of course this has nothing to do with the Night Vapor, but it works great with larger planes that can carry cameras. The flat turns keep the horizon level in the video, making it more watchable.

I have the rudder programmed to work on both right and left stick on my DX6i. I can turn using the left stick(rudder) and the right stick(elevator). If I get into trouble I can use the right stick as rudder/elevatoer to bail me out of a jam.

I recently found out I can fly indoors at the local community center here and grabbed my Night Vapor for some relaxing fun! . I shot some video today, enjoy.

Nighthawks Frankin Vapor!

2nd upgrade all about power.

I just attached a Champ prop, to my NV. It already has the J-3 motor upgrade and a 150mAh batt. Tested it in the living room *******Whooooooooosssssh********* its fast

Noticed the rudder getting "flimsy". >Probably from all the living room crashes over the years
