The NEW E-flite Havoc Xe 80mm EDF...up to 140+ MPH and 10+ minute flight times!


We're EXTREMELY excited about this ALL-NEW, GROUND-UP and internally designed/developed EDF model that's been in the works for quite some time now!

Introduction
The E-flite® Havoc Xe 80mm EDF is a scaled-down version of the Elite Aerosports Havoc X with an extremely wide flight envelope that combines stable slow speed performance with top speeds up to 140+ MPH, and flight times up to 10-12+ minutes, to deliver an elite sport jet experience unlike any other! See more details/info below and on the product pages here:

Pre-orders accepted starting on May 16th, first shipments currently expected to arrive around mid July.

The Elite Aerosports Havoc series of turbine-powered RC jets has redefined the ultimate sport jet experience. From ultra-slow and smooth low passes and landings to high-speed, high-energy aerobatics and everything in between, their uniquely wide and unmatched performance envelopes make them the sport jets almost everyone dreams of owning and flying someday. The E-flite® Havoc Xe 80mm EDF makes that dream a reality by offering the same incredible flight experience in an officially-licensed, scaled-down version of the Havoc X — delivering one of highest-performance and best-handling electric ducted fan powered sport jets EVER!

Overview
The E-flite® Havoc Xe 80mm EDF has an extremely wide flight envelope that combines with incredible performance and aerobatic capability to make it an excellent choice for experienced and first-time jet pilots alike. At its core is a 6S compatible brushless motor and 100-amp ESC that are matched to a 12-blade fan that works with the expertly engineered and optimized ducting to deliver an abundance of speed, thrust and a turbine-like sound – without the need for “cheater” holes. It’s capable of top speeds up to 140+ MPH and has nearly unlimited vertical performance, plus it can fit batteries from 4000mAh to 8000mAh to deliver unmatched flight times up to an amazing 10-12+ minutes (with corresponding throttle management)!

Reliable electric retracts with shock-absorbing, trailing-link struts on the nose and main gear make it possible to easily fly from grass and other surfaces. The large flaps can travel both ways and can be mixed to offer full-span aileron control (with 7+ channel receivers/transmitters) that delivers the fastest roll rate ever seen in a jet. The eight metal-geared servos with ball-link equipped linkages are factory-installed and provide precise control, and the fully-molded EPO airframe is lightweight yet durable. Best of all no glue is required for assembly, and the factory-finished one-piece wing, one-piece stab and fuselage bolt together with just nine screws so final assembly takes almost no time. And it all combines to deliver an elite EDF sport jet experience unlike any other!

From Dream To Reality
Over the last few years, the Elite Aerosports Havoc series of turbine-powered RC jets redefined the ultimate sport jet experience and became some of the most popular models flown at jet events and contests worldwide. Capable of smooth and stable slow flight plus high-speed, high energy aerobatics and everything in between, they’ve become the sport jets almost everyone dreams of owning and flying. The E-flite Havoc Xe 80mm EDF makes that dream a reality by offering the same incredible flight experience in one of the highest-performance and best-handling EDF sport jets yet! This makes it a perfect choice for experienced pilots, but it’s also an excellent choice for a larger first EDF jet model because it’s easy to take off, fly and land.

High-Performance
The 12-blade 80mm fan, high-RPM brushless inrunner motor and 100-amp ESC deliver nearly unlimited vertical performance with 6S batteries. Expertly engineered and optimized ducting eliminates the need for “cheater” holes and delivers top speeds up to an incredible 140+ MPH. The efficient power system and aerodynamics combine with 4000–5000mAh batteries to deliver higher performance and longer-than-typical flight times compared to other similar class models. And the extremely large battery compartment can easily fit batteries from 7000–8000mAh to deliver amazing and unmatched flight times up to 10-12+ minutes with corresponding throttle management – and even when performing loops from level flight and other aerobatics around half throttle.

Capable Gear
Shock-absorbing, trailing link struts on the nose and main gear soak up the bumps of rough surfaces including grass and make it possible to fly from a wider variety of fields. The reliable electric retracts are equipped with durable metal components, and the steerable nose wheel plus wide-spaced main gear offers excellent ground handling.

Unmatched Capability
The Havoc's unique design offers incredible handling across a wide speed range and flight envelope. It’s capable of rock-solid high-speed flight so you can perform locked-in low-level flybys, plus aerobatic maneuvers including giant loops, point rolls, practically endless knife edge flight and more. It’s also capable of smooth and stable slow flight, plus slower-than-expected landings.

Durable Precision
The composite reinforced EPO airframe is lightweight yet durable, plus it’s factory-finished in a vibrant, high-visibility trim scheme. And the factory-installed metal-geared servos with ball-link equipped linkages deliver crisp and precise control at every speed.

Fast and Easy Assembly
No glue is required for assembly and you can have the Havoc Xe ready to fly in less time than it takes to charge a battery! The one-piece wing with an innovative hands-free connection system, one-piece stab and fuselage bolt together with just nine screws.

Bind-N-Fly® Completion Level Advantage
Already own a Spektrum™ transmitter? Bind-N-Fly (BNF) aircraft make getting into the air quickly and with the best control experience possible easier than ever. They come out of the box with the power system, servos and a Spektrum 2.4GHz receiver installed so all you need to do is bind the receiver to a compatible transmitter, finish any final assembly and fly!

This Bind-N-Fly Basic model is equipped with a Spektrum 2.4GHz DSMX® receiver featuring AS3X® (Artificial Stabilization–3-aXis) technology that works behind the scenes to smooth out the effects of wind and turbulence so you enjoy a sense of stability and precision that makes it feel like you're flying a much larger, expertly tuned aircraft.

If this is your first model of its type, or you want an extra margin of safety while familiarizing yourself with the airplane, you can enable the optional-use SAFE® Select flight envelope protection technology built into the receiver. No special programming is required. Simply change up the binding sequence as directed in the manual.

With SAFE Select enabled, you get:

Pitch and Bank Angle Limits
• These envelope limits keep the airplane from rolling or pitching upside down. They also prevent excessive climb or dive angles.

Automatic Self-Leveling
• The airplane instantly returns to and holds level flight when the sticks are released and in the center position. It’s also helpful for keeping the wings level during takeoffs/launches and landings.

Easy Switch Assignment
• The simple procedure for assigning a transmitter switch to turn SAFE Select features on and off doesn't require any special programming and takes just a few seconds.

If you don’t want to enable the SAFE Select features, just bind the receiver normally and it will function like a standard AS3X receiver.

Plug-N-Play® Completion Level
This Plug-N-Play (PNP) model comes out of the box with a factory-installed power system and servos that are ready to connect to the compatible receiver of your choice (sold separately). Simply install the receiver, finish any final assembly and fly!

I really hope y'all teamed up with Elite Aerosports and Pablo to deliver an EDF Havoc for us guys with turbine bans at our field.

Either that or a new Habu/Bandit would be awesome as I retired my old Habu and would love a modern Habu to take its place.

Of course I hope it's 80/90mm and 6S, though I'm curious with the 10-12 minute flight time. Is that circle flying? Or aerobatics mixed in? I know HH teaming up with FMS has been an excellent relationship as you've designed lightweight airframes with decent ducting and decently efficient power systems to give excellent performance

As long as it flies like this I'll be happy

I’m very disappointed that it won’t do 150 and have 16 minutes of flight time.

Seriously, I’m not much of a sport jet guy, but my interest is definitely peaked.

10-12 minutes, even if it's fairly slow flying, is impressive with an EDF.

I am not much of a sport jet guy either, but I will make an exception for this one, based on some local gossip...

I am pretty certain that it is a Havoc. Not certain about the size of the fan, but heard something about 70mm. Would not be surprised to see it be larger, as at 70mm, it would be a direct competitor for the newish Eflite 70mm Viper. Not many 8s 70mm aircraft out there, but you never know.

Joe Tamez, owner of JTs Hobby in west Fort Worth is a dealer for the humongous Havoc and the other Elite Aerosports ARFs and flies them regularly at our field. It is amazing how many of those monster kits he can get into his shop.

And yes, show it off early...

Almost unlimited verticle, high energy aerobatics, 140 mph top speeds, and 10-12 minutes of flight time? Not gonna believe it until I see it.
