The pics look sweet!!

Hey Gun, think a nice 90mm Stu would fit in that thing? maybe too big?

I think I heard 80mm, Stu would sell a ton of them if he had a cut down 80mm for it...

now that would be really sweet!

No speculation here. Saw it firsthand as the Horizon crew flew the out of them all weekend. Slick as cat guts. 130 mph flat and level, 160 plus out of a dive. I want it.

Great, just what we need .... speculation about something we have facts on (from Mr. Redman and Mr. Eichstedt themselves):

* New E-flite motor about 2150 Kv 28mm inrunner
* 80mm fan
* Glass fuse with glass intakes installed.
* Balsa built up and fully sheeted wings, stabs. Vertical molded with fuse.
* All prehinged in ultra cote out of the factory.
* G10 control horns.
* Set up for E-flite 15 - 25 sized retracts.
* Molded plastic canopy hatch.
* 6 channels out of the box.
* About 7 pounds ready to fly with a 6S 5000 45C battery.
* Uses MC35 servos all around except for rudder which uses a 368 servo.
* Would be easily convertable to a JetCat P-20 for those interested.

Just a couple corrections here. The vertical stab is molded in with the fuse and the canopy hatch is molded plastic and not glass. Fan is 80mm.

About 4 to 6 in. bigger in W.S and LT then the other habu 7#4ozs. Dave said it would be very hard to get a 90mm in it. Retract ready has flaps, rudder . All hinged out of the box.

I've fallin in love , I'm sure she is the one for me!

Any speculation from any staffers on possible release date to the land downunder(aus) ?

Do we really have to wait till third week of oct to get it on the website? After all the cat is well and truly out of the bag now I was tryingto decide on getting a ss 90 or a sapac hawk 70 and you drop the habu 80 bomb but now the time will kill me ..

Sorry for my whinging..

the speculation isn't as to if the Habu 32 exists. it is as to what the production model will be capable of and what power systems will work, and how they will perform. other then what HH provides as the gospel of their power setup for the Habu 32, until it hits the streets any discussion on these points is speculative. there is no speculation as to wether or not i will buy one around my house. the wife will be putting a roll of wrapping paper under the christmas tree so i can wrap and unwrap my belated Habu 32 christmas present this year. jan is along time to wait though. dave will this be offered as an pnp, arf with fan, or arf only? being it's e-flite i'm speculating arf w/fan and fixed gear. while waiting it would be nice to buy what ever is available and needed to be ready for it's arrival. please and thanks.

Yes it was. I will not hit the street until January, so you never know if they will make changes.
