We will not be able to fill all backorders. I believe we're covering all the dealer launch program participants and all consumer backorders, but we won't have open stock after we ship these. Next shipment will be toward the end of August. (Spence, this is why the PKZ website shows Aug availability).
Individual replacement parts are now shown as In Stock, so when will these ship? I ordered only the foam parts, because I already have everything else I need, but I did not want the bare airframe becuase I like the Thundebirds paint scheme.

Almost everytime I've ordered spare parts from either Parkzone or E Flite, they've had some sort of "blemish". They're always functional and not broken, but the spare parts seem to be parts that come off the assembly line and are not in "perfect" shape. Probably their way of saving money instead of just throwing them away.

I got mine today, looks great !!!!!

I lost my version 1 Habu this April, when a bird strike took off 1/3rd of my wing !!!!

In all my years of flying, I've never seen that before, usually the birds get out of the way.

I don't think that I'll be very helpful for the stock set-up evaluations.

My last Habu was running a Change-Sun fan on 5 lipos @ 1600 watts.

This time I'm going for a 6 lipo set-up from Tamjets.

I'm so happy that they pre-molded the retracts into the model.

The old XPS system was great, but kinda of tedious to install.

I can't wait to try the flaps....

I wish my 8 cell Habu 32 was this light in weight

I just got mine at Aeromicro. Hopefully will get a chance to fly tomorrow. The kit really looks nice. I am just starting the retract installation, but looks like it should go together quickly.

Buy both!

I can't speak for the Tomahawk Viper, but my version 1 Habu had a pretty wide flight envelop. I was especially surprised at how well it flies at lower speeds. It really doesn't even need flaps. The only reason I sold it was to get the new one.

My LHS had four in today, but I opted to order the unpainted airframe. Should have that next Tue or Wed. I want to do a custom paint job on mine.

I don't understand how some guys got theirs when horizons site never said in stock. I pre ordered the day it was announced from hobby zone and didn't get one. Sucks.
