The Jet For Just About Everyone
Based on one of the best first and high-performance EDF (Electric Ducted Fan) sport jet platforms ever designed — the legendary Habu — the E-flite® Habu SS 50mm EDF is the most affordable and convenient version yet, scaled down from the popular Habu STS (Smart Trainer with SAFE®) and SS (Super Sport) 70mm EDFs. It's the first-ever 50mm class model from E-flite, the perfect first-ever EDF for low-time RC pilots making the transition into jet flying, and one of the best-ever everyday sport jets for experienced pilots! The power system is compatible with extremely common and popular 3S 1300–2200mAh batteries and features a Spektrum™ Avian™ 30-amp Smart Lite ESC. The BNF® Basic version also includes an AR631 receiver that delivers real-time telemetry data along with the benefits of exclusive AS3X® and SAFE Select technologies — making it an ideal "next step" for anyone who has learned to fly successfully with a trainer.
Easy To Fly And Extremely Fun
The E-flite® Habu SS (Super Sport) 50mm EDF is perfect for low-time to experienced pilots looking for a hassle-free, fun to fly high-performance EDF sport jet. The unique and optimized design of its lightweight yet durable, composite-reinforced EPO airframe improves low-speed handling and slow speed performance to make it one of the easiest to fly jets EVER! Unlike other 50mm class models, it also has a functional rudder for added control and aerobatic capabilities. Inside, a Spektrum™ Avian™ 30-amp Smart Lite ESC and high-power brushless outrunner motor are ready to drive the 12-blade 50mm fan with a wide range of 3S batteries. Install a 1300mAh battery to keep the weight down, an 1800mAh battery for an excellent blend of performance, or a 2200mAh battery for maximum power delivery and long flight times. With Smart and non-Smart batteries, the ESC can also provide a variety of real-time power system telemetry data including motor RPM, current, battery voltage and more via compatible receivers (including the AR631) and Spektrum AirWare™ equipped transmitters. Wide-stance tricycle landing gear with a steerable nose wheel offers great ground handling for easier takeoffs and landings on surfaces ranging from paved runways to dirt and even short grass. It's also easy to hand launch and belly land without the landing gear installed. The Habu SS 50mm EDF arrives factory-finished in a high-visibility trim scheme with the power system, servos, and receiver (BNF® Basic version only) factory-installed. You'll be ready to fly in less time than it takes to charge a battery!
If you're completely new to flying RC (Radio Controlled) aircraft, we recommend learning to fly with one of our purpose-built trainer aircraft such as the E-flite® Habu STS (Smart Trainer with SAFE) 70mm EDF (EFL01500). It's equipped with exclusive and innovative SAFE® technology that makes it possible for almost anyone to learn to fly successfully!
The BNF Basic version is equipped with exclusive Spektrum™ AS3X® and SAFE® Select technologies. AS3X works behind the scenes to smooth out the effects of wind and turbulence to deliver a locked-in feel that makes it seem like you're flying a much larger airplane. Optional-use SAFE Select offers pitch and bank angle limits along with automatic self-leveling that can be turned on and off at the flip of a switch! And if you don't want to enable the SAFE Select features, simply bind the receiver normally and only AS3X will be active.
The Habu SS 50mm EDF is equipped with an exclusive Spektrum™ Avian™ Smart Lite ESC that can provide a variety of real-time power system related telemetry data including motor RPM, current, battery voltage and more – with Smart and non-Smart batteries – via compatible receivers (including the AR631) and Spektrum AirWare™ equipped transmitters (including the DX6e and 8e, DX6 G2/3 and 8 G2, the DX9, NX6, 8 and 10, iX12, iX20 and others) while you fly. Plus, optional-use thrust reversing can help shorten rollout after landing and offers other special ground handling capabilities.
The factory-installed Spektrum™ Avian™ 30-amp Smart Lite ESC and high-power brushless outrunner motor can drive the 12-blade 50mm fan with a wide range of extremely common and popular 3S batteries. Install a 1300mAh battery to keep the weight down, an 1800mAh battery for an excellent blend of performance, or a 2200mAh battery for maximum power delivery and the longest flight times!
Jets are typically faster and harder to fly than most of their prop-driven counterparts, which can make it difficult for low-time – and sometimes even experienced pilots – to fly them. The unique and optimized airframe design of the Habu SS improves low-speed handling and slow speed performance and makes it one of the easiest to fly jets EVER!
The lightweight yet durable composite-reinforced EPO airframe is factory-finished in a high-visibility trim scheme. And unlike other 50mm class models, it's equipped with a functional rudder for added control and aerobatic capabilities.
The wide-stance tricycle landing gear with a steerable nose wheel offers great ground handling for easier takeoffs and landings on a wide variety of surfaces from paved runways to dirt and even short grass. Or you can leave the landing gear off for more speed and vertical performance plus easy hand launches and landings on grass.
The Habu SS 50mm EDF arrives mostly factory-assembled with the power system, servos plus the receiver (BNF® Basic version only) installed. All you need to do is finish some quick and easy final assembly, without the use of glue or special tools, and you'll be ready to fly in less time than it takes to charge a battery!
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. The result is a heightened sense of stability and precision that makes you 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 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
Easy Switch Assignment—No Complex Programming Required
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.

They real difference is size and safe technology with the habu sts, this will be quite a bit easier to learn to fly this style of plane than the ss versions.
