Parkzone Mini Vapor Indoors With Chuck & Mike.....


Finally got to fly the Mini Vapor Indoors and guess what? It's a Beauty! First up you see me having my first indoor session. Then Mike from OMP joins me and we fly 2 Mini Vapors for Corinne to film. Straight away i crash into Mike's and then seconds later collide again Whoops! haha These planes are Durable and just flew away unharmed. We had a Third session too where near the end of the batteries we head out into a smaller area to "slow fly" our Parkzone Mini Vapors
So sit back and enjoy a few flights of this Majestic Plane

cheers chuck

Chuck,

I really enjoy seeing all your vids on the new stuff before we get them here in the U.S. Great video! Looks like it can fly as slow as the original and that makes me happy! . I have always liked all of the Vapors and it looks like this one won't disappoint either!

Do yourself a favor and get a Night Vapor. I do not enjoy flying the NV in small indoor areas like the original Vapor. The heavier weight, albeit just a couple grams, makes it fly vastly different inside. BUT, fly it outside on a windless night and it is AMAZING! I have flown it outside at 1 in the morning sometimes and it is really neat. Once you get used to the light configuration, you can fly it extremely high (not recommended on the rtf tx). I have flown it hundreds of feet in the air and orientation is no problem! There is something really fun about getting it really high up on a windless night...

Thanks again for the great vid!

Pete

Chuck,

What a FUN VIDEO! I was all the way through! You gave us an EXCELLENT demonstration of what that lil' Vapor will do!!!

Welcome to the "Wonderful World Of Vapor Flying". You've definitely "earned your Vapor wings"!

It's a different flying experience than the UMX Beast, Sukhoi, Sbach, or the larger parkflyers. Unique and challenging in it's own way..but most enjoyable and a great change of pace...and a super alternative when weather outside prohibits flying and we don't have a large indoor area available.

I should get the call from my LHS within the next couple of days saying that mine's in. Now that I've seen your video, I REALLY can't wait!

THANKS, Chuck!
Tom

PS: AND...it was good to see Mike from OMP and put a face with his name. Please tell him "thanks!", too.

Based on the paint scheme, this is a more appropriate pilot figure for mini-Vapor with Flaps and Retracts:

Ok.....is Parkzone joking or are they serious about functional flaps and retracts and drop tanks and everything? BECAUSE IF THEY WERE SERIOUS I WOULD TOTALLY GET THE FLAPS AND RETRACTS AND DROP TANKS AND ANYTHING ELSE THEY COME OUT WITH

Got my MV yesterday, but did not maiden yet.
It's so cute.
Weight with included batt is ~9.1 gr and 10,25 gr with a Vapor 70mAh.

I'll be at an indoor event tomorrow and will check how it flies with both batts, and in comparison to the Night Vapor.
Can't wait.

Ugh I have good news and bad news.

Good news is that my Mini Vapor was on the porch this morning!

Bad news is that I propmised not to open it until Christmas.

BELIEVE ME HAVING IT BUT NOT BEING ABLE TO FLY IT IS WORSE THAN NOT HAVING IT AT ALL! ARRRG!!!

BTW I even know where it is....but it is way too tall for me to get to. And I would be risking my life to use a chair.....very tricky/tight spaces. UGH

I am thinking of getting one of these to fly in the living room. It's going to be a long cold winter. I can sort of fly the Night Vapor in the house but I just wish it would go a little slower. Is the mini easier to fly indoors? I saw a post a couple of pages back where somebody was able to get it to hang on the prop. That would be great, because the Night Vapor will not do that.
