My sentiments as well, with regard to the "no rolls" issue.
I really wanted to see if it was capable of such maneuvers.

Looks to be quite a bit of wind in the video.
Seems that it loops quite easily, as if it does have a little more
power vs. the Cessna or Citab

Video is better than nothing I suppose!

Woah! That was great. But it looks like the piper and flybaby did the same thing though. I think that i like the flybaby better but i want both sooner or later. Is the Vapor compatiple with the flybaby?

No, the vapor has far better dsm2 technology.(faster response ,better radeo options dual rates, expo,mixing 4+ channels...imagine a 4gram brick with 3 servos, a led switch,and a brushless motor...now say:"from horizon hobby"because thats what you might see! )

The Vapor does!? It comes with a 4 ch. Tx so then that makes it compatiple with the piper cherokee? I just only want to buy 1 rtf kit and then for on now buy the PNP kits. That way i only have 1 DSM2 Tx lying around that i can use with most of my Parkzone/Kyosho.

skiesthelimit,

The Vapor tx is not compatible with any of the Kyosho ultra micros, nor with any other ParkZone ultra micros (yet, anyway ). The Vapor uses Spektrum DSM2 2.4 GHz architecture so it's compatible with any DSM2 transmitter. Spektrum DSM belongs to Horizon Hobby; I don't believe Kyosho has licensed it from us.

The ParkZone Cessna, Citabria, and Ember transmitters and airplanes are all compatible with each other, but not with the Vapor.

Just because we didn't see any rolls in the vid, doesn't mean it can't do them, does it?

What's the point of 4 channels then? Tighter turns? Is that it?
