Nice! Did you make it yourself? How did you shape the wings? I've seen videos of people flying Embers inside their house, but they are better than me. I can barely fly a Night Vapor in the house.

Just for info if you can't get spare 30mAh cells, mine flies much the same on a Hyperion 70mAh. Bit faster and a bit more stable because of the extra weight but still very similar. And it flies for ever.

UPDATE

The actual increase in weight from the supplied 30mAh to a Hyperion 70mAh is 1.2g.

Just a conversion from the 2-CH Ares Nano Micro Stick.

Hello fellow indoor slow flyer fanatics. I just stumbled across this video on the net. There are a lot of different planes shown here, and some are electric, some are rubber powered, some are RC and some free flight. It is eye candy for slow flyer fans.

There are hundreds of excellent venues here in NYC, none of which seem to be available for indoor flying.

Thanks, that was fun to watch. Nice use of the side room as the other part of a figure-eight course.

How does your MV taxi? Mine won't taxi straight, instead it just runs in tight counter clockwise circles. Everything looks find so I'm assuming it must be the motor thrust that is causing this.

No vapor will ever taxi perfect, you can convince them to go in certian directions, but thats it. By the time the rudder has enough air flow to make it straight you're already in the air!

I actually added a temporary steerable tail gear to my big vapor, but took it off, its just a novelty, not exactly usefull.
