E-flite Habu STS 70mm EDF RTF Electric Jet Airplane (1029mm)
Pros-Very easy to fly on beginner mode and 3s, hand launching is very easy once you get the hang of it.

- excellent beginner airplane for edf. It's kinda fast for beginner, but I'm new and don't have issues flying in beginner mode

- comes with free real flight simulator training. Software feels very nice to me and seems like excellent way to learn muscle memory on the sticks

- easy to maintain. Replacing all foam parts is fairly straight forward and easy to do

-Flies much better with landing gears removed. I hand launch and do belly landings on grass.

Cons- It's horizon so you will have to deal with Horizon customer service if you have issues

5 Stars!

E-flite Habu STS 70mm EDF RTF Electric Jet Airplane (1029mm)
Just had my first 2 flights with this plane today. Very Very easy to fly. This is my fist plane with SAFE and the Axis assist. This makes this plane super easy to get up in the air and fly. I have two other high wing trainers but this is my first jet and I haven't flown a rc plane in 3 years. By the end of the first flight I was back to expert mode. A big plus with this plane is it comes with real flight with this model on there so you can practice before going to the field. Helped me knock off the rust and I didn't have to buy anything extra. So far I'm very pleased with this plane.

Only down side on so far is the charger. You will want to upgrade after your first charge. It takes me 8-10 hours or more just to charge one 3s 4000mah. Plus you can't use it with 4s battery packs. Other then that this is a awesome plane.

Plane only lasted about 10 seconds in the air before it had a electrical problem or something in the plane malfunctioned and nose dived into the ground breaking it to pieces. Customer service is horrible and will not be buying any more horizon hobby/eflite planes again. HORRIBLE! save your money.
