I have a night vapor and fly it in a high school gym in the winter. I have been in many collisions and today the motor mount/gear box broke. Got one at the LHS for $7.00. We have divided the planes into groups to keep the damage down. Night vapors and such are one. Micro WWII fighters and champs are one. Helicopters are one. Except that they really don't do well outside I would buy another night vapor.

I am liking the little foam planes because they seem pretty survivable. Not 100% bullet proof; but the same kind of landing on a .40-46 balsa ARF vs little foames will send you home vs keep flying.
I have a Parkzone micro T28 and a P40. REALLY like those!!! I can fly them in a bit of wind; not fun but it's do-able. They are Z-foam and can some beating. I've repaired the T-28 some, it looks rough but it keeps going.

I mention these because they come with a field portable charger, uses AA batteries. You can also buy replacement batteries for these cheap (as are most in this size). I have 6, and two portable chargers
Fly; replace with battery 2 and start charging battery 1;
Fly; replace with battery 3 and start charging battery 2;
Fly/replace with battery 4, 5, 6
By this time, battery 1 is charged; start charging battery 3 (its cooled down a bit)
And battery 2 is charged...

You get the idea!! You have more possible flight time than ability to pay attention at this rate.

Regards

we have flown the Flyzone foamies and love them. Their Neiuport is extremely easy to fly and a good plane to start with. In fact, all of them are good starter planes. We fly the Cub, the Albatros, the Fokker and the Playmate and all are easy flyers. Give one a try.

I just wanted to post an update. I didn't end up getting the Inum, as it got some rather poor reviews. Mostly the flight characteristics and design were not very positive. I did buy the Night Vapor shortly after I posted this original thread. I must say, the Night Vapor is absolutely my favorite slow flying plane! I don't have the space to fly it indoors, but the plane is awesome to fly outside when there's no breeze. Flight feels pretty much perfect to me, I don't have any struggles with it, and it flies really smooth.

I also love any plane that comes with a way to charge in the field, and the included field charger is awesome. The plane is durable as well. Actually flew it into my pool the first day I had it, since an out-of-nowhere gust of wind came and took the plane into the pool, haha. The plane glitched out a bit, but after a few days it went back to normal and I haven't had any issues with it.

Definitely a recommended plane, and the more you fly it, the better you get. Super fun and easy to fly, and of course can be flown at night.

Posting an update! I couldn't help buying the Flyzone Inum, despite the numerous complaints about it's poor flight characteristics (namely that it always wants to turn left). I tried it out and posted my experience with it as a new thread. I talked about my efforts to fix the problems it has and it flies much better now.

Here's the link: Fix your Flyzone Inum RTF!!
