I love Todd's calming voice at the beginning letting me know he missed your takeoff.

The Habu is pretty fast. I don't know what our altitude does to it, but lots of guys are getting 120-130 mph with the stock setup.

In fairness to Todd, he was taking still pics of the plane as I was getting ready for takeoff. The switch over to video on my camera is different from his and different from my other camera that he has used before. His calming voice does help.

NICE MAIDEN JEFF! Congrats! Glad you got to do it in St. George! I love my Habu32, I've probably got 30 flights on it now.

Current documented speed record straight and level stock is a hair over 115MPH on 7s. TAM's got his 9s going 149.5 level.
But out of a dive I'd say these easy do 130MPH stock and they are so easy to fly.

ecase,

I'm exporting the final right now. Takes forever in HD. I probably won't post it until Monday morning (Sunday midnight) so I can enter it into next week's DragonLink competition.

I represent that too.

That was quite a soothing voice. I must have been extremely tired, hmm, I wonder why? Maybe because I didn't go to bed the night before?

Hey guys,

Just a shout out to those who may be considering a larger "Starmax" style Mustang... the 50-55 580KV motors Todd, Jeff, and I use haven't been in stock for a long time at HK.... but I got a note that a similar 50-55 is on sale today only at Leader Hobby for $24.

I'm picking one up to replace my motor with the loose magnet.

I used a temp of 50 degrees, at least that's what the weather service said it was in St. George last Saturday. If it was a bit warmer(which it looked like), add a couple/few mph to those numbers.

So, after watching your video I took my lunch break and headed to AD for some Habu 32 flying. No one there so just a fixed camera, but perfect flying conditions, except for the gray clouds. Below is the video. Level pass I got 111.97 Mph and out of dive 120.63 all on 6s. I was going to do a 7s flight but work called and had to go.

Habu 32 - Stock 6s (2 min 59 sec)
