Does this mean the "high speed tuck" has been eliminated?

any reason for it being so short coupled? It looks like a vapor wing was put on a minivapor fuselage. The performance it pretty good though!

funwithplanes,

The Vapor Lite HP is the same length as the Mini Vapor.

I made the rudder post a little taller and added an additional hole in the control horns to allow for more throw. The Vapor Lite HP flies at about the same wing loading as the Night Vapor but is about 3/4 the size and weight. It allows for loops that are about a foot and a half in diameter, and with the extra throw you can do the spin and some of the other things in the video.

The Vapor Lite HP also uses a 17,000 kV motor to allow for vertical like you see.

Here is a photo of all the different size Vapors, the FPV Vapor is the same physical size as the original Parkzone Vapor as well as the Night Vapor.

Very cool.

I think I might be one of the few where high Alpha flying does nothing for me but this plane looks way more capable than my Night Vapor so it would be a blast in a basement or big garage with a little more room.

I knew something was off... I was hoping for a revival of the original Vapor.

Combine the the original airframe with the smaller/lighter electronics, and you'll have something that actually supercedes the original.

Thank you for this picture.

I was struggling to visualize the difference between this and my Night Vapor.

I will be grabbing one of these when it becomes available. Should be fun inside the house.

In the video on the board you can see different models on their and from the top to bottom you can see the Cirrus and later the aero Commander and then this model. After that it says AT6, so I'm putting money down that the AT6 is coming out next but it's hard to get a good look at the board

I got a better picture and now you can see a B2 edf (I'm assuming park size), and then there's a carbon z model can't make that one out. And then a wild cat probably park size as well, a umx b29 which I'm assuming is twin brushless 🙏😀 and then a tri racer which might be cool if I knew what it was.
