Overview
The ParkZone® Habu EDF Jet is a full-throttle thriller capable of blistering speeds and precise aerobatics. At the heart of this spine-tingling performance is the phenomenal power of E-flite’s BL15 3200Kv brushless ducted fan motor mated to an E-flite Delta-V 15 ducted fan. The potent combo produces enough thrust for outstanding climb performance and thrilling highspeed passes. When it comes time to throttle back and enter the pattern, the Habu’s remarkably wide flight envelope and forgiving slow speed handling will reward anyone used to flying faster sport planes with picture perfect nose-high touch downs and take-offs.

This is anything but the same old sport flying experience. If you’re an intermediate to experienced pilot looking for highspeed jet thrills, the ParkZone Habu EDF Jet is just what you’re looking for . . . and a whole lot more.

^Actually, 290€ is $424.79

Well, hopefully that's just retail price. Doesn't seem typical of parkzone to charge that much for a plane though. Also, I hope they just make a PnP version.

Oh, yeah:

We'll have it at iHobby, and full details will be made public then.

A couple corrections from the German website: it's a 3200kV motor, a new version of the BL15DF used in the E-flite Hawk, and the battery that comes with the BNF is a 3200 mAh 4S Li-Po, not a 3S.

Umm, and the 125 mph claim is pushing it a little bit. We have caught it on radar at about that speed (it was either 120 or 124, I can't remember at the moment), but it was IN A DIVE. Level flight speeds are quite a bit less than that! Yes it can be fast, but the big thing with this one is the excellent handling qualities + reasonable speed out of the box, no upgrades required.

I love the super clean look... even if it's a bit generic.

Yes... I will probably buy one.
