Parkzone's update to their popular Habu, the Habu 2, has just been announced. The EDF jet's re-design now means that optional E-flite 10-15 size electric retracts can be installed and flaps now also feature.
It's a ready-to-fly machine, available in the PNP and BNF formats and the power system is unchanged so, like the first model, Habu 2 requires a 4S 3200mAh Li-Po battery.
The first model was well received although owners were often left in a quandary - the model flew notably smoother without undercarriage yet could be tricky to hand launch and a belly landing wasn't the ideal way of bringing it down to earth. Indeed, many Habu owners fitted their own retracts so this re-design should be well received.
