However, a friend of mine has the latest mag with the ad and we both really want one!

The newer AR64XX are DSMX. They even added DSMX to older AR without telling anybody. I think the Beast is one of them. People with DX8 suddenly got a bit of telemetry back! (not much though, which is sad. Would have been nice to have battery voltage!). Makes me wonder though, could they put a AS3X brick on the Vapor???? That would be good to fight those nasty ventilator, or HVAC system in some gymnasium!! (and who know, help a little bit for those outside flights... A Vapor that could fly nicely in 3mph to 5mph winds?)

The AR6410 and AR6410L are DSMX.

This brick would be a new version of the PKZ3351. That is the part number that will change

One of the guys I fly with indoors said he called Horizon yesterday and asked about the 'Mini-Vapor'. He was told to check their website on Thursday. I guess we'll know in a couple of days, one way or another...

I wonder what else might be waiting in the wings - so to speak?

I have been thinking about getting a heli for this winter but this little guy looks like it would fit the bill nicely. Practicing carrier landings on the kitchen table, hoola hoop courses in the bonus room...good times.

Yes, I do this a little bit. But sometimes it's nice to open it up a teeny bit more. I do mean teeny too!

Screw that but that's probably right! They want that for their G L I D E R!!

I used to be big into the um's but they've just gotten way too expensive and too heavy and fast for a small, proportionate sized area to fly in.

I would like to have this one for in the house tho but not for a gouged price just because its new.
