Parkzone Night Vapour
« on: January 11, 2018, 04:45:05 AM »
So I have sold my 450 heli - which was very sad to be left in a dark case for so long, but is now very happy that it will be imminently crashed by it's new owner!

I have used the funds to buy a Night Vapour to add some fixed wing fun to my indoor heli collection of a Blade MSRx and a MCPx.

Does anyone have any experience with the Night Vapour?

My main downstairs area is small but open plan so I'll have a 'T' shaped space that is about 37 feet in one direction and 25 ish in the other. hopefully that will be plenty of room!

Sorry not a planker, but it looks very interesting.... I wonder how it handles the wind....

Is that 37x25ish all one big open area????

I wish Dave!! It's a T - with the top of the T 37 feet long and the vertical bit 25ish - if you know what I mean - a bit like two corridors that meet in the middle. I'd guess each section is about 15-18 feet wide....

Should be enough room....

The vapour only weighs something crazy like 25 grams, so I would think even a hint of a breeze would be too much for it. Anything I've read suggests it is useless outdoors other than when it's flat calm....

Wow I must have been tired last night, I thought I saw a T shape in your post and then didn't see it again.... You hid it in plain sight... hahaha

S, I got my Night Vapor, ran a battery through it, then packed it up and sent it back to the shop!

It is a brilliant aircraft and incredibly slow flying, but in my space the only thing I was ever going to be able to do with it is drag it around in circles at minimum speed and a high angle of attack. I could tell within about 5 minutes that i would get bored of it in my house very quickly. It just wouldn't manage outdoors in anything other than absolute flat calm - and that doesn't happen very often in Ireland!

Instead I am going back to plan A and once my refund is through I will buy an Inductrix FPV Pro and have some fun with that instead. I'll report once I get my hands on that in a week or so!

I have no doubt the Night Vapor is a great fun machine in the right space, but a gym hall or similar is where it needs to be to have fun.....

Yeah, I didn't think it looked like it could handle much wind.... Thanks for the update....
