Product Overview
Engineered for improved low speed handling and performance to make flying and landings easier, the E-flite Habu STS (Smart Trainer with SAFE) 70mm EDF makes it possible to succeed in learning to fly with a jet as your first radio controlled airplane! Based on one of the best Electric Ducted Fan sport jets ever designed, it's been optimized with the addition of SAFE technology featuring Beginner, Intermediate and Experienced flight modes to make it easy to fly successfully, especially with the help of an instructor. The inclusion of exclusive Spektrum Smart components including a LiPo battery and charger make it more convenient to charge properly and safely (battery and charger sold separately for the PNP version). Wide-stance tricycle landing gear with a steerable nose wheel and oversized tyres allows for takeoffs and landings on surfaces ranging from paved runways to grass and even dirt, plus you can install the optional Landing Assist Sensor (LAS) that automatically "flares" for smoother landings to make learning to land even easier! Best of all, the durable EPO airframe assembles quickly and easily without the need for glue or special tools - which means you can be ready to fly in less time than it takes to charge a battery.

The Ready-To-Fly (RTF) version includes everything needed to fly in one box and is the perfect choice if you're a new RC pilot. From the Spektrum DXS 2.4GHz transmitter you can use with other Bind-N-Fly (BNF) and BNF Basic aircraft after you learn to fly the Habu STS, to the 3S 4000mAh Smart LiPo battery and a convenient S120 USB-C Smart charger that can be used with a variety of USB power sources, there's nothing extra you need to buy or provide! A Plug-N-Play (PNP) version lets experienced modelers choose and use their own transmitter, receiver, battery and charger. And for both versions, the powerful brushless power system including a telemetry-capable ESC and the servos are all factory-installed.

In the Experienced Mode, the Habu STS 70mm EDF is capable of performing aerobatic manoeuvres including loops, rolls, inverted flight and more. You can use a 3S battery for an excellent balance of power and flight time, or you can install an optional 4S battery for more speed and thrust without the need for any modifications or upgrades.

Durable Design

Construction with advanced EPO material delivers a lightweight yet durable airframe that's tough enough to handle everyday flying punishment without getting bent out of shape.
