The E-flite® UMX™ Habu DF is a high-performance jet experience you can enjoy from the convenience of a backyard. Modeled after the popular ParkZone® EDF sport jet, you get a sharp looking hotrod that's been custom engineered to deliver impressive maneuverability at a variety of speeds and the agility to hold almost any attitude. At its core is breakthrough ultra micro electric ducted fan technology featuring inlet and exhaust ducting expressly engineered to harness the full potential of the high-speed 28mm Delta-V® 180m brushless EDF system. The best part of all is the surprisingly rock-solid handling and control feel provided by its AS3X® system. In this review we take you from opening the box of the UMX Habu to your first flights. John Diniz offers some helpful tips on preflight trimming and setting up flight modes on the Spektrum™ DX8 transmitter. The E-flite UMX Habu truly supplies big jet performance in a small package.
