Default Vapor Electronics

Anyone try putting the ParkZone Vapor board in another micro sized plane?

I was thinking about building a micro flying wing and using elevon mixing with it. According to the BNF manual, it sounds like the rudder & elevator servos are on the aileron and elevator channels, so elevon mixing with the DX6i or DX7 should work.

Maybe use the Centurion/Citabria motor/gearbox/prop with it. Stick it on the back of a small foam flying wing, mount the prop backwards, flip the motor wires to spin it backwards for a pusher prop setup.

Use the force, luke search. I didn't save the thread, but I have commented on at least two. Try to search for parkzone cessna or Vapor or Ember.

The Cessna and Ember electronics can't be bound to a DSM2 transmitter, so there's no way to use elevon mixing. I did a search on the Vapor and found nothing on this topic.

Oh yes, I forgot about that. I should have read your original post more clearly.
I was mostly thinking about the Cessna board. There have been alot of people that have put that board in another small plane.
The new ember board will work.

I found a monster thread (1200+ posts) over in RCGroups that mainly talks about putting the Cessna board in other model planes, but a few guys hacked the Cessna transmitter and added a mixer board to do elevon mixing:
