Just noticed this thread and I am a Habu 32 fan and owner. I was hoping Horizon would come out with a 120mm Habu 32 but I guess they are not interested. You do have talent sir(humbertomelo)....think I will read your other build threads. I would like to learn your building techniques and build a large scale Habu of my own during the winter months....just don't know if I have the talent. I am a believer in low wing loading so I would like very much to build lighter weight EDFs.
Thanks for the post.

Madmax1965, I totally agree with this " I would like to learn your building techniques". He has turned bending foam into an art form. Check out some of his tutorials here: www.parkjetdesign.com

My next project will be foam. I just picked up a bundle of FFF to practice on. I only hope most of my " Practice " bends don't end up in the trash!
humbertomelo sets the bar pretty high!

Humberto,

Nice glider!


Here's one of our customer's in Italy, 1.5 meter glider. I've copied the specs from his email. Sorry, no video.
He's running a very high KV motor for 4s in this EDF, but I believe he uses the power only for take off, or to regain altitude.
..........................

Hi Gary,
I also send to photos about asw28-edf, without decals yet because, I only tried it and it flies very well and the sound is fantastic! I use a dolly for take-off, just 10 meters!
