PRODUCT OVERVIEW

The E-flite Habu SS (Super Sport) 50mm EDF is perfect for low-time to experienced pilots looking for a hassle-free, fun to fly high-performance EDF sport jet. The unique and optimized design of its lightweight yet durable, composite-reinforced EPO airframe improves low-speed handling and slow speed performance to make it one of the easiest to fly jets EVER! Unlike other 50mm class models, it also has a functional rudder for added control and aerobatic capabilities. Inside, a Spektrum Avian 30-amp Smart Lite ESC and high-power brushless outrunner motor are ready to drive the 12-blade 50mm fan with a wide range of 3S batteries. Install a 1300mAh battery to keep the weight down, an 1800mAh battery for an excellent blend of performance, or a 2200mAh battery for maximum power delivery and long flight times. With Smart and non-Smart batteries, the ESC can also provide a variety of real-time power system telemetry data including motor RPM, current, battery voltage and more via compatible receivers (including the AR631) and Spektrum AirWare equipped transmitters. Wide-stance tricycle landing gear with a steerable nose wheel offers great ground handling for easier takeoffs and landings on surfaces ranging from paved runways to dirt and even short grass. It's also easy to hand launch and belly land without the landing gear installed. The Habu SS 50mm EDF arrives factory-finished in a high-visibility trim scheme with the power system, servos, and receiver (BNF Basic version only) factory-installed. You'll be ready to fly in less time than it takes to charge a battery!

Exclusive Technologies

The BNF Basic version is equipped with exclusive Spektrum AS3X and SAFE Select technologies. AS3X works behind the scenes to smooth out the effects of wind and turbulence to deliver a locked-in feel that makes it seem like you're flying a much larger airplane. Optional-use SAFE Select offers pitch and bank angle limits along with automatic self-leveling that can be turned on and off at the flip of a switch! And if you don't want to enable the SAFE Select features, simply bind the receiver normally and only AS3X will be active.


Gear Options

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 dirt and even short grass. Or you can leave the landing gear off for more speed and vertical performance plus easy hand launches and landings on grass.


Uniquely Optimized

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 and makes it one of the easiest to fly jets EVER!
Smart Technology

The Habu SS 50mm EDF is equipped with an exclusive Spektrum Avian Smart Lite ESC that can provide a variety of real-time power system related telemetry data including motor RPM, current, battery voltage and more - with Smart and non-Smart batteries - via compatible receivers (including the AR631) and Spektrum AirWare equipped transmitters (including the DX6e and 8e, DX6 G2/3 and 8 G2, the DX9, NX6, 8 and 10, iX12, iX20 and others) while you fly.


Popular Power

The factory-installed Spektrum Avian 30-amp Smart Lite ESC and high-power brushless outrunner motor can drive the 12-blade 50mm fan with a wide range of extremely common and popular 3S batteries. Install a 1300mAh battery to keep the weight down, an 1800mAh battery for an excellent blend of performance, or a 2200mAh battery for maximum power delivery and the longest flight times!


More Capable

The lightweight yet durable composite-reinforced EPO airframe is factory-finished in a high-visibility trim scheme. And unlike other 50mm class models, it's equipped with a functional rudder for added control and aerobatic capabilities.


Easy Assembly

The Habu SS 50mm EDF arrives mostly factory-assembled with the power system, servos plus the receiver (BNF Basic version only) 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!
