new ParkZone Vapor is an exciting innovation from Horizon Hobby
that offers both convenience and ease of flight. It is truly an
ultra-micro flyer for everyone! The Vapor is small enough, and
slow enough to be flown in a basement, garage, living room, or
other indoor spaces as well as outdoors in low wind conditions.
Vapor comes in a Ready-To-Fly (RTF) version that includes a 3-channel
DSM2 transmitter or a Bind-N-Fly (BNF) version that allows experienced
pilots to utilize their own DSM2 transmitter.
charger and batteries are all included inside the box, making
it easy to get the Vapor off the ground. The Vapor is the second
member of ParkZones tremendous Etomic family of ultra-micro
aircraft. Its carbon fiber composition represents the ultimate
in lightweight design, helping it deliver the best in flight quality,
value and, most importantly, fun. Its single-cell Li-Po battery
charges in approximately 20 minutes and gives you extended flight
times of nearly 15 minutes, while 3-channel control provides the
precision needed for flying in those tight spaces indoors. Featuring
the state-of-the-art looks and instant enjoyment people love about
ParkZones products, the Vapor will be a stylish and unique
addition to your fleet, or the perfect introduction to the world
of RC flight.

flight battery (a single cell LiPo), charger, and 4 AA cells to power
the charger are all included in the box for the BNF version. The RTF
version also contains 4 additional AA-cell and a 3-channel DSM2 transmitter.
only preparation needed to fly is to install the 4 AA cells into
the charger, charge up the single-cell flight pack, and bind the
transmitter to the Vapor receiver within the first 5 seconds of
plugging in the flight battery.
video of the Vapor is only my second flight. I added 30% exponential
to both rudder and elevator controls but kept the throws at
full. I think the video will speak for itself and show that
the Vapor is truly an impressive micro-flyer!
the Vapor is recommended for intermediate level flyers, it is
fairly rugged and should pose little problem for a lesser experienced
pilot to fly with some guidance. Flying the Vapor outside over
a grassy area in little to no wind conditions can be enjoyed
by all skill levels.
