The E-flite® Habu 32x DF airplane takes electric ducted fan (EDF) performance and engineering to new heights. Designed around the E-flite Delta-V® 32 80mm fan unit and high-speed DF32 brushless motor, its hyper-efficient intake and exhaust ducting deliver a potent power system that produces a large amount of thrust available as quickly as you can move the throttle stick. The new swept wing and horizontal stabilizers enhance the appearance as well as both speed and maneuverability. The result is a sport EDF that will give even experienced jet jockeys goose bumps. Even more satisfying is the short amount of time you’ll need to get this hot-rod flight-ready.
The Sport-Jet Sensation
Since 2008, when the ParkZone® Habu was first introduced, jet jocks and speed fans worldwide have flocked to the Habu line of EDF jets for the sporty looks and great performance. The E-flite® Habu 32 DF is the largest in the series and has delivered pro-grade performance to the club field environment. The new E-flite® Habu 32x DF jet takes electric ducted fan (EDF) performance and engineering to new heights. Designed around the E-flite Delta-V® 32 80mm fan unit and high-speed DF32 brushless motor, its hyper-efficient intake and exhaust ducting deliver a potent power system that produces a large amount of thrust available as quickly as you can move the throttle stick. The new swept-back wing and horizontal stabilizers enhance the sleek appearance. The result is a sport EDF that will give even experienced jet jockeys goose bumps. The Habu 32x DF boasts a level of fit and finish that is every bit as impressive as its performance. Even more satisfying is the short amount of time you’ll need to get this hot-rod flight-ready. The recommended E-flite accessories and Spektrum™ radio gear can help provide the smoothest build possible, as well as flight performance even the discerning modeler and expert pilot can appreciate.
The new swept-back planform of the wings and horizontal stabilizers feature full-balsa sheeting and genuine UltraCote® film covering. The wings attach to the fuselage using carbon fiber blade spars that fit into aluminum sockets for a rigid structure that can handle incredible speeds and G-loads.
The Habu 32x DF features built-in wheel wells and hard-points that easily accept the required retracts such as the E-flite 15-25 size electric retracts (EFLG230-sold separately). The gear doors included improve streamlining and conceal the main landing gear struts when they’re retracted.
The ailerons, elevator and flaps use a sealed-hinge of genuine Hangar 9® UltraCote® covering for a clean look and less drag. The complex, bifurcated fiberglass intake ducts are factory installed and perfectly faired inside the fuselage so you can get in the air quicker.
An optimized intake and exhaust design delivers maximum fan thrust without requiring cheater holes. As a result, the Habu 32x DF delivers outstanding performance in all flight conditions, reduced amp draw, quieter operation and a better flying experience overall.
Easy Access that’s Sleek
The quick-release hatch makes swapping out batteries and accessing electronics easy. Nose and belly hatches make access to the nose gear and EDF simple. A tinted clear canopy adds greatly to its "real" appearance in flight. Pilot figure not included.

There is a video posted on YouTube now. Says new swept wing design. Looks very similar to the old plane. Even if it is just a new color scheme it is nice to still have the airframe available. They fly great.

Looks great chuck,i posted a thread early this morning cause i couldn't find any on it,good to see you posted this anyway,if i was to go for another EDF myself this is the one i would go for,looks great.

Looks like it is slightly larger. The wingspan has increased. So it looks like they have done some work. Thumbs up from me.

I just fitted Tams struts to my Habu 32. I didn't like chopping a part of the wing away. A smaller version of the retracts the Stinger 90 uses would be perfect; metal trunnions, compression mains, trailing oleo nose. Many landings no issues.
