Here is an old picture of a model of similar dimensions against my first Habu.

I took thr photo for a different reason, being how close sport jets copy the F-20 design.

Hope this helps. FYI, my 70mm F-20 is about an exhaust tip shorter than the Habu. The Efflux/AirSally model may be a bit different.

wing span with missle rails is 28 3/4" with the smoke generators on 29 3/8" so it is a bit smaller than a habu all up airframe weight was 3 lbs 12 oz. so with 5000 4s it going to be about 5lbs 2 oz.this has a pretty high powered system in it so a lighter power system and a bec would get it close to 4.lbs 10 oz. we flew the prototype at @4 3/4 lbs and it landed pretty good so we will see . i used a lot of 1/8" ply where i feel i could use 1/16 ply ,and the nose section was done with 5.8 oz cloth and i feel that 3.6 could be used. so we'll see if i can drop the air frame weight on the next one. as i get more experience with the process that may help too .biggest hit to the weight is power system and batts.

The bottom fan hatch needs a bit more trim for a flush fit, besides that she is a beauty.

I cant tell but does the model has a working rudder?
