You are a brave man to try to fly it in that room. It does look sturdy. I have one of the older models and they flew quite nice. Perhaps I need one of these to fly in my yard at night. Hmmmm.

Thanks for the review.

You are welcome Jim and that is out of character for me to fly in such a crazy place. I am glad that I could do a durability test for the community though

Check out this flight in a much more suitable location:

I have one of the originals that is fun to fly, but this one with lights would be fun at night in my yard or pasture when the wind stops blowing.

Thanks for the follow up video. Much easier to fly than in your room.

We used to have access to a 4 court basket ball center, but that went away. At least access went away.

I wish I had access to something like that! At least I can fly in John's shop here and there now

Check out the local schools with gyms. Perhaps in exchange for a few demo flights, they would let you fly there. Don't forget the private schools either.

I really like those airplanes. Easy to fly in small spaces.

Nice video. I don't know if I have ever looped mine. It is much older, so I don't know the power differences.

Thanks for the video.

I had the HZ model. A good gust of Arkansas wind took it. Probably in Texas now.

I almost lost a expensive light flyer when a gust of wind took it. It got so far away I could not tell which way it was headed so I let it cross a highway and some railroad tracks and pointed it down and pulled the throttle. Then I went to look for it. It landed about half a mile away as the RC flies and received not damage. With no power it would just drop the nose and then when it got a bit of speed, it would go nose up until it stalled again. Must has landed itself and the homeowner found it. It helps that I live in the country and know all the neighbors.

Being built of carbon fiber rods and ripstop nylon helped with the no damage.

Nice video, as usual, GB. Is your location near an airport because I thought I heard an airplane pass overhead. Either that or that Vapor really has a great sound.
