Parkzone now shows a mid July availability on their web site....earlier in the week it said early July. My LHS called yesterday and told me he just got a ship date from HH of 6.28 With all these dates popping up it must be close.

No worries, Im skeptical as well.

Well the look for one

Version 2 allows for retracts and flaps, along with a few other enhancements.

I was just informed that the ship date from HH has been moved back to 7.10 This matches their mid July time frame on the ParkZone website.

I think I'm going to buy the new version and not add anything to it, just a 5S belly lander, as light as possible.

You got a nice clean retract setup on the original. Mines down right now as the front gear/ eflite strut failed on me. You have a link to those struts?

1st shipment is on the water and should be able to ship this month. However...
Initial demand has exceed our initial order quantity, so we're going to have to make some tough allocation decisions.

Airframe Only

Dave,

What color will the airframe only be? When I ordered the same for the first Habu it came fully painted with the decals applied?

NFG
