Any other planes that fly as well as a Meteor?

They just said last week that they would be back for the holiday sales. Wonder which is true.

I got on the customer chat line with Nitroplanes last night after reading this and was told that the plane was no longer in production.
Anybody have a spare fuse they can part with I need one bad.

I would be hard pressed to fit a 5s 3300 40c battery in the Habu, I would be scared to fart anywhere near the canopy after the hack job it would have to take to fit that.!!

NOOOOOO!!! Bad Dynam! Why would you do that! Makes me not want to fly mine anymore for fear of crashing and not being able to replace it.

I remember ready somewhere that the ESC appeared to be identical to the Turnigy Plush 60amp (the programming cards worked).

Might be worth trying one of the manuals to be found under the Turnigy ESC 'files' tab?

I hope the Meteor's demise is a nasty rumor. Another option for those in a rush might be the Hobby Lobby Rebel 70. Specs look about the same. Lists for $20 less than HABU.

I just purchased a habu airframe only, going to fit it with meteor electronics and fan/motor setup ....do some hogging in the battery compartment for 5s pack and see what happens....all for 150.00 ...not a meteor but next best thing...im partial to the meteor because its lighter,,,but e habu airframe is more sound in my opinion...so in a few weeks i will know....
