GOOD INDOOR STARTING POINT
Strengths: Flies well without being too fast. Very maneuverable.
Weaknesses: Film detaches fairly easily but can often be repaired with Prit stick glue.
Overall: The one I started indoor flying with, and I still fly it at the indoor sessions. My first became so battered that it became a donor for a Night Vapor which I bought as an airframe only. Endurance is so good that boredom is likely to creep in before the battery runs out As you get into indoor, however, you quickly want something a bit faster and more plane like such as the Cub or Champ.

PERFECT ARMCHAIR FLYER
Strengths: Easy to fly, turns an a sixpence,surprisingly aerobatic and less than 100!
Weaknesses: Servos suceptable to jitter if they are pushed against. Some of the joints arn't espiecly strong.
Overall: Well so far as flying is concerned i fly mine in an 8'x15' room with ease so a sportshall is perfect. On still days going into the garden and trundeling round on low rates or doing touch and go's and tail dragging on the tramploine on high. This little plane is seriously good fun. Get one and a couple of spare battries and have fun. Even if you break something all the bits are available from a hobbyzone stockist. (P.S. Get 4 rechargeable AA cells for the charger because they will run flat quite quickly).

GREAT FUN!
Strengths: Flies in very small area. Very maneuverable.
Weaknesses: Hard to see in direct sunlight.
Overall: Unlike the magazine article, I find the Vapor loops quite easily. I now have two: one lightweight version for day, and a night flyer. Been doing this sport for many decades and I probably have more flight time on this bird than any plane I've ever flown! I usually flight at night when the wind calms down. The turbulence from the cars after they pass can knock it around a bit if you get back in the street right after they pass.

GREAT LITTLE MODEL FOR VERY LARGE ROOMS, HALLS OF GARDENS
Strengths: Everything you need in the box, 2.4Ghz!, flies nice and slowly.
Weaknesses: Can't think of any.
Overall: Superior indoor model - an out of the box solution for club nights in the hall or sports hall.
