Description

The DH Vampire was the 2nd jet to enter service with the RAF and was unusual for the time in that it was powered by a single jet engine, this allowed for a small and lightweight fighter aircraft, to maximise efficiency the jet pipe was kept short, hence the distinctive twin boom tail, all of these factors helped the Vampire to become the first aircraft in RAF service to exceed 500mph. De Havilland employed some techniques from the construction of the famous Mosquito, wood was therefore used in the construction of this classic jet! The Vampire broke several records in it's time and was the first jet aircraft to land on a carrier as well as being the first jet to complete a Trans-Atlantic flight, the Vampire became a huge success and served with many air forces around the world.

The Durafly® ™ Vampire is made from tough EPO foam and is superbly finished with waterslide decals. As well as looking the part, it is easy to assemble, being Plug N Fly, the EDF unit, ESC, UBEC and servo's are all pre-installed. The Vampire is pre-fitted with superb, scale-slow servoless retracts, they have a very positive lock which combined with the beefy struts and large rubber wheels, makes this jet perfect for almost any field.

Jet's are about performance and the Durafly® ™ Vampire will not disappoint, it has excellent speed and climb rate, when you combine this performance with the real presence of this model, not to mention the un-canny scale-like sound, the end result is one of the most realistic jet's in this class. Where the Vampire differs from other scale jet's is that it is almost impossible to stall and has an amazing off-power glide making for a very forgiving model that is really easy to live with. Fast, stable, scale, reliable, easy to live with, easy to fly and with presence in spades, the Durafly® ™ Vampire will stand out at any airfield, ideal for aspiring jet jockeys, a must for any jet fan!

This is my second Vamp, As my older one which I loved, met it's demise when clipping the top of a tree and was destroyed. This plane is Awesome to fly, Very easy to modify, I use a Changesun 10 blade fan, with the stock motor and ESC, 4s 3600 Battery, Stock main gear, Aftermarket nose gear, ( use the stock nose gear until it goes bad) And just replace it with something better, Use a 6 channel receiver and set this up for spoilerons on landing, And you will love the way it lands,,, I am glad this plane is still available, Great plane for the money!

with the recommended battery this plane is very light for it's wing area, which means it just glides and glides on with 0 throttle, it's one of the easiest planes i have to land.
the only problems i had with it is because the foam is rather soft, first problem was the front wheel getting loose and creating slack in the steering cables, it would steer all over the place. i had to reinfoce the entire front wheel area just to stop it from slopping from landing.
also the tailbooms are a bit weak, i had to reinforce them because i got some play on the angle of the horizontal stab and elevator. i get a solid 5 minutes flight on it every time, you can fly it half throttle with no problems at all. i would suggest reinforcing the tail and nosewheel when putting it together.
for the price this plane is a steal! would recommend to anyone wanting an easy going edf.
looks great in the air too!

Great plane flys fast, really easy to build also my favourite plane out of all of hobbykings models. The only problem I had with it was it is really easy to get hangar rash during transport.

Arrived in perfect condition. Replaced the stock ESC with an 80amp unit set for high timing. 750 watts /50amps with lots of thrust. Removed the U/C which saved 185gm/7oz. Used silver duct tape to close wheel wells.Strengthened tail booms with 3mm carbon rod let into underside fin to wing. C of G with 3300 4s Turnigy needed 30gm lead in front nose bay.
Flew off easily in light breeze from a gentle level hand launch. Needed 9 clicks of down trim at cruise speed but otherwise no problems. Sounds great, very realistic aeros, stall gentle with some wing drop. Glides amazingly well so landing needs a bit of learning to avoid overshooting the runway. Verdict. Terrific scale EDF and even with the new ESC good value.

I worship the Durafly Vampire. It is the flagship of my fleet. I had my first model for about a year - crashed it a few times and it always repaired nicely. I killed the electronics after the first couple of crashes so I replaced them with a 60A skywalker ESC and a 2839 6 Blade.
I put it in a high speed vertical dive and it broke apart. Not hesitating, I bought another model and flew it in its stock form for the first 5 flights. At this point, I'm no slouch at the controls and I can really put the Vampire through it's paces. I noticed that the ESC was cutting out on occasion so I made a mental note to replace that soon.

On the fifth flight, my Vampire lost control on take-off rolling violently to the left and tail heavy. After failing to level it out for an emergency landing, it crashed in a lake behind the trees. I concluded that I had a bad servo.

In retrospect, it's good that I replaced the electronics on the first model because it's lasted me several flights. This time, there was no retrieving it from a frozen cold lake. Total loss.

To conclude, this is a great jet model for the money. It sounds great in the air and flies majestic. The electronics are lacking in quality control though. ESC cutting out and a servo that went bad docks two stars from my rating.
