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!.

UMX Habu maiden (7 min 22 sec)

He loves it and you will too.

100% high rates, no expo was so excited to fly i didn't set up anything... All that I needed was a few clicks of down trim to get the elevator visually level.

Maiden successful, this plane flew perfect. I used the recommended D/R and expo by manual but i probably could do without. I used gear so it didn't seem as fast as your's BuckarooVT90, i'll try without next time. Also how do you attach the battery? I used velcro and some tape just to be sure.

Yep flies beautifully! My stock eflite 200's came with Velcro.. And matches up with the Velcro that's already in the battery compartment.

It flew much faster without the gear and i also trimmed the edge on the ailerons and wings as it disturbed the airflow a bit. Next i will balance the fan.
