so the the whole wing would be swept back, same with the stab

also looks like they flared the wing and stab tips, (the trailing edge is wider or angled out), that's probably where they got the extra span 42 vs 40.5" and additional wing area 412 vs 392

I think it looks great, and I will probably buy one

First post says-

Two-piece, plug-in wings and stabilizers with carbon blade spar support
Whether or not the T.E. is swept or straight , the root chord is the same. If L.E . did not change, and T.E. is swept--that would account for increase sq/in. Tip root have would be longer. That's only 10sq/in per panel.

you are correct if the tip cord is longer

tip cord looks similar to the original, but could wider and you are right that could give the extra 10sq/in per wing

on my CAD program you can just grab the tip and pull it back to get more sweep

without on overview comparison we can't tell

I really like the new look

But in doing that, you aslo change the L.E sweep angle, my point was if that did not change ( L.E. sweep) thats how it was done.

Ours will be getting the "whoosh" of a Jetfan 80 setup.

--So the new wing and horizontal tail will fit the old airframe for replacement parts??

--New foam core sheeted wings and stabilizers stronger than built up sheeted wing?

Had a look at the manual, built up balsa sheeted same as the original. Original is well built no issues.

I was just on your site looking at those. I know nothing about 80mm setups. Guess I need to research.

Hmmmmm.....when I was originally looking at getting a 32 I did a lot of research about it and it seemed the most talked about issue was the tip stall tendency. Everyone was saying keep speed up, don't use a whole lot of elevator in a turn, etc... I bought one quite a long while ago but for various reasons haven't finished the build and flown it yet. I have the Tam 1409 2y 8s set up in it with eflight retracts Tam struts and all Hitec servos. I guess now that a new one is coming out I need to finish the little tidbits and get it in the air...lol.

What will the swept wing do for the new habu? The plus and the minus?

Less drag but will move the cg back which means it may be harder to get it to balance with heavier batteries. Maybe they moved the fan back or made the V in the ducting deeper to allow for that?

So more than likely faster? but may stall easyer? Hard to say until we get one and fly it.

If you add crow for landing(both ailerons deflected up a bit) then it always helps reduces a chance of tip stalling. From the looks of it, the taper is not drastically different from original so I wouldn't be concerned about it.
