Product Overview
Based on the legendary Habu - one of the best first and high-performance EDF (Electric Ducted Fan) sport jet platforms EVER designed - the E-flite Habu SS (Super Sport) 70mm EDF is a more powerful and more capable version of the popular Habu STS (Smart Trainer with SAFE)! It's a simple, no hassles, easy, and extremely fun to fly high-performance sport jet that's a perfect first-ever EDF for RC pilots with limited experience - while also being one of the best-ever everyday sport jets for experienced pilots. The Habu SS offers the same incredible low-speed handling and performance as the STS, but features updates and upgrades for more aerobatic capability, higher speeds, and nearly unlimited vertical performance. The specially tuned motor and 70mm 10-blade fan are compatible with 4S to 6S batteries without the need for modifications or upgrades. This factory-installed power system delivers plenty of speed and thrust with popular 4S 3200mAh batteries, added power with 5S batteries, or nearly unlimited vertical performance and speeds up to 100 MPH in a dive with 6S 4000mAh batteries! With Smart and non-Smart batteries, the exclusive 70-amp Spektrum Avian Smart Lite ESC can provide a variety of real-time power system telemetry data including motor RPM, current, overall battery voltage and more via compatible receivers (such as the AR631 included with the BNF Basic version) and Spektrum AirWare equipped transmitters. Best of all a wide range of pilots, even those who have never flown an EDF before, can enjoy flying this model successfully - especially the BNF Basic version that includes exclusive AS3X and SAFE Select technologies.
Factory-finished in a trim scheme with higher-visibility colours, the airframe is composite-reinforced and strengthened to handle the added speed and aerobatic capabilities right out of the box. The optional-use fixed landing gear is outfitted with smaller diameter wheels and tires for sleeker looks and less drag. The wide-stance gear plus steerable nosewheel makes it easy to taxi, takeoff, and land on paved, dirt, and shorter grass surfaces - or you can install the oversized wheels and tyres from the Habu STS to fly from thicker grass and other rough surfaces. You can also remove the landing gear for more speed and vertical performance with easy hand launches over and belly landings on grass. Best of all, the Habu SS 70mm EDF assembles quickly and easily without glue or special tools - so you can be ready to fly in less time than it takes to charge a battery!

Are you new to flying RC (Radio Controlled) aircraft?

Versatile Power

The factory-installed Spektrum Avian 70-amp Smart Lite ESC and high-power brushless outrunner motor can drive the 10-blade 70mm fan with a wide range of batteries. Install a 4S 3200mAh battery for plenty of speed and thrust, a 5S battery for added power, or a 6S battery up to 4000mAh to deliver nearly unlimited vertical performance and speeds up to 100 MPH in a dive!


Uniquely Optimised

Jets are typically faster and harder to fly than most of their prop-driven counterparts, which can make it difficult for low-time - and sometimes even experienced pilots - to fly them. The unique and optimized airframe design of the Habu SS improves low-speed handling and slow speed performance that makes it one of the easiest to fly jets EVER!



More Capable

The lightweight yet durable composite-reinforced EPO airframe has been strengthened to handle more power, higher speeds and higher energy aerobatics. It's also factory-finished in a high-visibility trim scheme.


Capable Gear

The wide-stance tricycle landing gear with a steerable nose wheel offers great ground handling for easier takeoffs and landings on a wide variety of surfaces from paved runways to grass and even dirt. The lower profile wheels/tyres offer a sleeker look and less drag, or you can install the optional oversized tires (sold separately) for operation from an even wider variety of surfaces including thick grass. Or, you can leave the landing gear off for more speed and vertical performance plus easy hand launches over and landings on grass.


Easy Assembly

The Habu SS 70mm EDF arrives mostly factory-assembled with the power system, servos plus the receiver installed. All you need to do is finish some quick and easy final assembly, without the use of glue or special tools, and you'll be ready to fly in less time than it takes to charge a battery!
