? new Habu 2

Has anyone seen this? Is it a Habu 2 in new paint? Which, BTW, I really like! No idea if anything altered in the powerplant area. Or for that matter if anything is different other than the paint.
That is my bet. i just returned from EWeek, and did not see it on display at the Horizon booth ( they do own Parkzone, don't they??) Also saw the "new" Habu 32- I spoke to a rep who informed me that the new yellow paint scheme, and a very very small increase in wingspan is the only difference from the old 32. He said that there is no change at all in performance. Good thing, as I would have had to buy one if the new one were to be faster than my old Habu32.

It is the UMX Habu S 180.
The new Habu 32 is the Habu 32X. Personally, I'm betting E-Flite will release a Habu 3 soon...

My guess is Habu 3 with SAFE gyro. Makes too much sense. The money is in selling the custom electronics. Eflite has no reason to make a 90mm jet - which I would love. And if it had foam hinges and cheap Parkzone servos then it's no better than anything existing,

How many Habu's does this Hobby need?
Eflite has the good hardware to make a decent scale foam jet and all that seems to happen is rehashed Habu's.
