  • New Release! E-Flite UMX Habu 180 DF RC Jet

    New Release! E-Flite UMX Habu 180 DF RC Jet
    Fans of RC jets, take note. E-Flite has just announced the launch of the UMX Habu DF 180. If it looks familiar to you, that’s no surprise. It is modelled on the very popular Habu 32 park flyer.  In the same shape as the original, the key difference is that its ultra-micro size means that this ducted fan jet is small enough to fly in your own backyard.  And boy, does this UMX Habu pack a punch! It features an EDF power system, incorporating the Delta-V 180m 28mm EDF Unit, coupled with a brushless 180m Ducted Fan Motor, with 11750Kv of power.   Check out this video where Mike takes us through the brand new release of the UMX Habu.  You can also watch on Modelflight’s YouTube chan...

I was pleased to hear from our leader, Michael O'Reilly of Model Flight that we did, in fact, make the necessary fee for this ultra-cold night.   It turned out to be a great night for those who were keen enough to come along, no doubt like me, covered by multi-layers of woollen wear and the heaviest quality at that.   ...
