Ouch that's rough. You sure you can't get it back?

The Ember is slow, but not slow enough to fly in a living room. The Vapor can fly extremely slow so it can fly in the living room. Just remember, it's not easy to learn to fly like that, though.

Brand new Champ. Flied it in baseball field. then wind started taking it out of the park. I cut power as soon as it gets the fence. Champ then glide around. I tried to use Rudder to turn it back. landed on top of a bunch of houses. Don't know which ones. Maybe I get a vapor then, but what about those two channels RC toy plane, such as palm Z or Avions?

Thanks for the video. Does it glide more than it flys? Otherwords do you have to constantly move rudders and elevator? Looks like the head is always up. Seems it takes alot of skills to do this in small space!

Yes, it glides very nicely, considering it's very low weight. No, you don't have to constantly move the rudder and elevator, unless you want to fly like the guy in video.

Don't learn on a 2Ch plane. Nuff said.

It does take a good amount of skill to fly a Vapor inside. Do you have a yard? If you do, the ember would be a better choice.

The Vapor kind of glides. If your flying inside, depending on size, you have to constantly be moving the elevator/rudder. You can fly outside, but only in dead wind.

No yard, I lived in apt and wants to fly inside my living room. I was looking at Megatech Avaion. Just 2 channel simple and easy for now. I know you guys here would prefer hobby grade RC plane, but I want something easy and fun for now. Will later look into Vapor.

+1 on night vapor. Parkzone discontinued the vapor and replaced it with a vapor with lights.

Yeah, since the vapor has more channels than the avion. If you like 2 channel you can still fly the vapor as a 2 channel aircraft. But it would be pretty hard. How big is your living room? If it is very small then I would reccomend a micro heli.

I think he already does Helis :P

Go with the Vapor. It will have a bigger learning curve than a 2ch.
