Fearless Sport Jet Performance
The E-flite® UMX™ Habu S DF180 is a high-speed performance jet that’s sized to enjoy just about anywhere outdoors. Based on the original UMX Habu, this new ultra micro sport model delivers an unparalleled RC experience. That’s because for the first time in a jet, exclusive SAFE® technology has been built-in to give you the comfort of flight envelope protection plus the locked-in feel that a custom-tuned AS3X® system provides. In addition, Panic Recovery mode can be used anytime you run into trouble, by instantly returning the plane to level stable flight.
E-flite® UMX™ airplanes let you fly with minimal fuss. The Habu S DF180 is designed to get you in the air in the time it takes to charge a battery. And because all UMX aircraft use advanced Spektrum™ DSM2®/DSMX® 2.4GHz technology, you’ll never have to worry about interference and will enjoy the freedom of flying them with a wide variety of Spektrum transmitters available.
Engineered with SAFE™ Technology
SAFE® (Sensor Assisted Flight Envelope) technology is a revolutionary electronic flight envelope protection system. This intuitive technology enables consistently smooth flight and battles windy conditions in multiple modes with varying levels of assistance and protection including:
Pitch and roll angle limits combine with electronic self-leveling to help you keep the UMX Habu S flying smoothly.
Natural feeling AS3X® system stability with expanded pitch and roll angle limits for a larger flight envelope that protects you from entering extreme flight conditions.
Pitch and roll limits are removed while AS3X technology delivers smooth flight and a rock-solid feel.
Panic Recovery Mode
1. Pilot loses control of the aircraft in any flight mode.
2. Pilot pushes the panic recovery button. The aircraft will return to level flight...
3. ...once the aircraft is flying straight and level, the pilot returns all other controls to their neutral position and continues a gentle climb to a safe altitude.
The Delta-V® Advantage
The installed E-flite® 28mm Delta-V® 180m ducted fan and 11750Kv brushless inrunner motor combination efficiently converts incoming air to forward thrust. Careful sculpting of the internal duct allows the Delta-V® 180m fan system to deliver optimal performance.
Advanced Spektrum™ Control
The electronics installed deliver precision control of the throttle, ailerons, elevators and rudder. Advanced Spektrum™ DSMX® 2.4GHz technology means that you’ll never have to worry about interference and will enjoy the freedom of choosing to fly with a wide variety of Spektrum transmitters available
The included rechargeable ultra micro 200mAh 2S 7.4V 25C Li-Po battery is capable of delivering 3-5 minute flight times. The included Celectra™ 2-cell Li-Po AC/DC charger can recharge the provided high-output battery in about 20-minutes.
I'm not a beginner, used a very basic DX5 transmitter as no brainer setup. It flew from pavement - just give it some extra room before elevator or turns. It went a ways before I applied elevator takeoff. Unfortunately too early for performance check as flew in misty slight occasional rain. And winds going on. What it did do was show off its built in stabilization beautifully. Touch of elevator in this breeze a solid nose up alpha, zero speed there but held solid position. Such a hurry I actually took off down wind and still made airborne from road. My battery was an older one not up to par as couldn't wait for new one to charge. Landing I simply lowered throttle, pushed the speed as into the wind, last made an easy touchdown. Soon as weather clears and use correct new battery, should be much improved flight. My error is always in a hurry. Still I like it! No crash! Eventually we have a mishap, mine are usually pilot error.
This is the first plane that took to the field after only charging the batteries - no other set up. No balancing or setting surfaces! I started in beginner mode, and by the end of the first flight, I was in expert setting. I cut the power, and it has great glide capabilities. This is a great value. I would highly recommend for intermediate flyers. I used my DX4 from my Delta Ray.
This is an great airplane. It has great glide capabilities and speed. Unfortunately this BNF aircraft comes with a charger with a plug that is supposed to connect to a car battery... Not the safest thing. I got an adapter for it but the charger keeps blinking "error". The flight battery does not last nearly long enough. This plane is very easy to fly though.
