Yes that does work great. Dont forget to do a second mix or else the aileron stick will still move the rudder as well. Just set to negative 100%

Has anyone had their Night Vapor attacked by a bat yet

I was flying earlier right at sunset and had a bat swooping all around the Vapor. Thankfully he never actually made contact but he was obviously interested in it.

I've been flying the crap out of my night vapor for the past 3 nights in a row and at least once a night a bat will fly around it a few times. They even come after my trex 450 and 500. I begin to wonder what would happen if a bat got too close to my heli.

This is how I fly my regular vapor. I just got the night vapor today for an indoor fly and the lights show up well and look cool with the lights off in the gym. My original vapor is getting very old now but still going strong.

Is anyone else using the Turnigy 160mah packs? I've been using them the past few flights and she runs like a raped ape.

Yeah I actually flew only the Turnigy packs the first few times and was surprised at how much power the Vapor had. On the other hand I've started using some 70 mAh cells and I like how it flies with the lighter load.

Either way it's a lot of fun

Sometimes I use Turnigy's 138mah packs if I want the slow, floaty feel, but I'll use the 160mah pack if there's a little breeze or just want some speed. I wonder if the micro j3 cub flies almost this slow.

The minimum speed for the micro J3 is considerably faster.

Me and my buddy were flying these lipos last night and flew for over 20 minutes! Power is awesome and makes pulling off loops easy! I am loving this little plane!

I like to trim the elevator up 20-40% to get the nose down and quite a bit more speed.

Had a sparrow show an unhealthy interest in mine during some early morning flying last Saturday. Fortunately no contact was made, but there were more than a few anxious moments before it broke off...

After only 3 flights my rear blue led quit working for some reason.
I called Horizon yesterday and they are sending me a complete new
lighting system and a new wing to replace the old one.
Guess what?, No charge!! Horizon Rocks !!!
