The plane should had taken off no problem did you let her pick up speed , you need at least 100 feet before lift off as far as CG don`t worry about it , the plane flys nose heavy from the get go also are you flying a 4s pack ? if you are not she will not get airborne must fly on a 4s 30c 4000 or 3300 at best

Habu with new Afterburner, Lights and Gear Video


Made this video of my stock HABU with the RC Lander light kit with afterburner. Repainted the airplane from blue and yellow to red and black. Replaced stock landing gear with Vigilante RC landing gear (They are great). Enjoy the video.

The cg in the specs is good, although I am now a little more tail heavy and prefer it that way.

I don't know why, but the only time, when I can get a correct CG is with a 2100 4s lipo that is about 100g less than the recommended 3200 lipo. And this works only when I remove the front steering wheel and use the non retract option. I have the stock motor and fan. Any ideas?

Hi guys. I bought a crashed Habu in a plane lot and was wondering what to do with it. A part of me was just going to strip all the parts out of it, but instead of taking the time to tear it down, I thought I'd try and sell it to see if anyone wanted to components.

Now I'm wondering if it'd be worth "fixin up" and making flyable again. I think it really only needs a new vertical stab and canopy. I can get those on eBay for ~$25 or so (after shipping), but I see that there is the Habu 2 airframe for sale for $100.

Now, I'm a bit OCD and really prefer my planes to look pretty. Even if I could fix up my Habu 1, that crunched nose would drive me nuts. However, I'm not sure if the Habu 2 airframe would be compatible with my Habu 1 electronics. Do you guys know if this would be a solution, or is the Habu 1 guts not compatible with the Habu 2 airframe?

P.S. You can see photos of the Habu in its current state here.
