Exclusive Spektrum Technologies 

The BNF Basic version of the E-flite® Habu SS 50mm EDF includes exclusive Spektrum SAFE Select and AS3X technologies. Working behind the scenes with hundreds of minor adjustments to smooth out the effects of turbulence and wind AS3X helps the pilot feel locked in and also the Habu feel like a much larger aircraft.
