Innovation, convenience and ease of flight – an ultra-micro flyer for everyone. Small enough, and slow enough to be flown in a basement, garage, living room, or other indoor spaces.

Remarkable DSM2™ radio technology makes the ready-to-fly Ultra-Micro™ Vapor® a plane just about anyone can pilot with confidence. As ParkZone’s slowest and lightest fixed-wing aircraft, it can be flown almost anywhere – a living room, a basement, even a conference room at work. Incredibly compact and loaded with all of RC’s best innovations, the Vapor offers a one-of-a-kind indoor experience, while the DSM2 radio eliminates any risk of interference and allows you to fly multiple planes at the same time. No matter what your skill level is (even if you have never flown RC before), it will be an entertaining and easy-to-fly option during those times when you can’t make it out to a park or flying field.

The 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 ParkZone’s tremendous Ultra-Micro family of 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 ParkZone’s products, the Vapor will be a stylish and unique addition to your fleet, or the perfect introduction to the world of RC flight.

Bulletins

The transmitter included with your Vapor has been pre-bound for you at the factory.  Should you need to re-bind the transmitter and receiver/ESC unit or when using the Vapor's RTF transmitter with another aircraft, please follow the instructions below.  Please also note that the instructions you will reference will depend on whether your aircraft and transmitter feature AutoBind or not.

Vapor RTF sets using AutoBind (LED on aircraft receiver/ESC unit and transmitter will blink immediately upon powering on):

 

1.       Ensure flight battery is fully charged and transmitter AA batteries have adequate power.

2.       Plug the flight battery into the receiver/ESC unit and the LED will begin blinking.

3.       Within 5 seconds of powering on the Vapor receiver/ESC, power on the Vapor RTF transmitter (LED on the transmitter will begin blinking) and the bind process will complete within 15 seconds.

 

 

Vapor RTF sets without AutoBind (LED on receiver/ESC unit will begin blinking after 5 seconds of being powered on.  LED on transmitter remains solid when powered on):


 

1.       Ensure flight battery is fully charged and transmitter AA batteries have adequate power.

2.       Plug the flight battery into the receiver/ESC unit. The LED on the receiver/ESC unit will begin blinking after 5 seconds.

3.       Once the LED on the receiver/ESC unit is blinking, push IN on the left control stick while powering on the transmitter.  Release the left stick once the transmitter is powered on.  The transmitter will beep, signifying the transmitter is in bind mode.  The bind process will complete within 15 seconds.
