My Night Vapor vs Mini-Vapor in a small space !
My flight time with Night Vapor +200 hours
My flight time with Mini-Vapor 5 minutes
Both can be slowed to about the same speed
The Mini-Vapor wins in a small space because of size!

Night Vapor vs Mini-Vapor (3 min 7 sec)

Has anyone else had the rear of the wing not glued to the post? I thought mine was broken when I opened the box last night. Will it fly ok with 70mah batteries also?
Thx for replies.

Has anyone else experienced this quirk with the Mini-Vapor. In using my DX8, I usually bind all of the small 3 channel aircraft to the same model. I bind the Vapor, Champ and Ember to model 1.

Now, if I bind the Mini-Vapor to model 1, I have to rebind all of the other aircraft to model 1. And, if I rebind the other aircraft, the Mini-Vapor will not work and has to be rebound.

What has changed in the electronics of the Mini-Vapor or is it my new DX8.

I have had some servo locking on my min vapor, squirted them with de-oxit. Normally i would freak out but with the mini vapor, its so durable in doors that servo locking wont be able to make any damage.

I am extremely surprised at the durability of this butterfly, i was concerned about the construction being like the original vapor(not being modular) but ive abused mine and the prop doesnt even have a scratch or a nick and has perfect tracking.

A cool manuever that this will do is if your in high alpha and lower the throttle, she'll descend almost vertically!

The Mini vapor has a DSMX brick.

"Super Lite DSMX® 3-channel receiver/ESC with 2 servos"

Multiple DSM2 receivers can be bound to one model memory but not DSMX.

Hmmm..... Just did a brief search of the technical posts.

It may be you can bind multiple DSMX bricks - haven't tried that since I don't have two.

But you certainly cannot bind receivers with different protocols (ie DSM2 and DSMX) to the same memory. That's what you are trying to do here.

Hope this makes sense.

John,

Thanks, I missed the fact that the Mini-Vapor is DSMX. And sure enough, I can bind the MiG-15(DSMX) and the Mini V to the same model without having to rebind. However, not sure I will do that with those two!

Again, thanks for the tip.

The MV will probably speak DSM2. Try locking down the model slot to DSM2 and then binding.

It will. I bound my MV to a DSM2 Spektrum DX6i. Thus far, no problems.

It does, it bound fine to my JR8103 with the older DSM2 module
