UMX Habu basic bnf


I've never flown any of the UMX jets, and I was at my local hobby store buying a few odds and ends for a different project and noticed they had a UMX Habu bnf and it's been sitting there for a long time and it was marked down to $99. Pretty sure she just wants rid of it because 98% of her business is for rc electric cars, they have a huge indoor track and the place is always busy. Is it likely to go any lower, or is that price already bottomed out?

I can't speculate about the store price. It could be at their cost already. But I do wonder if their micro Habu is 1st or 2nd generation? I love my 2nd generation Habu S. One of my all time favorite airplanes, once I reworked the rotor balance and adjusted the CG and trimming to my preference.

first gen is yellow/black, 2nd is orange/white.

and 99 for new is not a bad price.

Thanks, I appreciate it. I'll see if she'll go any lower, judging by her shop's stock of planes for sale and the crowd that goes and hangs out on race nights and the layer of dust on the box, I'm sure it will be there next time I drop by.

Besides the color what is the difference between 1st and 2nd gen?

all i have is a 2nd gen.

it has SAFE tech.
no idea if the 1st gen has SAFE.

should be printed on the box rather prominently if it does have SAFE.
