My good buddy, BuckarooVT90, bought this UMX Habu from our LHS yesterday during lunch time break. Since we still have at least 15 minutes left before going back to work, we decided he will do the unboxing and maiden flight all at the same time.

My iPhone 5 recorded the event and he did the editing on his mini Ipad. Enjoy!.

He loves it and you will too.

I got this Robbe Skyflex kit last year from an RCGroups member. Through out the winter season, I slowly built her up. Instead of using the hunky brushed motor that came with the kit, I used a brushless GForce outrunner with a matching 30A ESC driving a 9x4 APC prop. Steering is done via a Futaba S3003 servo. With a Spektrum RX and an 1800mah 3s 25C lipo, the onboard pilot was all smiles in the summer sun. Of course, only after the initial "pilot's error" occurred.

Here's a video of the maiden flight. Enjoy.


Some details of my setup.
