Habu SS (Super Sport) 50mm EDF Jet BNF Basic with SAFE Select and AS3X
The Jet For Just About Everyone
Based on one of the best first and high-performance EDF (Electric Ducted Fan) sport jet platforms ever designed — the legendary Habu — the E-flite® Habu SS 50mm EDF is the most affordable and convenient version yet, scaled down from the popular Habu STS (Smart Trainer with SAFE®) and SS (Super Sport) 70mm EDFs. It's the first-ever 50mm class model from E-flite, the perfect first-ever EDF for low-time RC pilots making the transition into jet flying, and one of the best-ever everyday sport jets for experienced pilots! The power system is compatible with extremely common and popular 3S 1300–2200mAh batteries and features a Spektrum™ Avian™ 30-amp Smart Lite ESC. The BNF® Basic version also includes an AR631 receiver that delivers real-time telemetry data along with the benefits of exclusive AS3X® and SAFE Select technologies — making it an ideal "next step" for anyone who has learned to fly successfully with a trainer.
