The Walkera Runner 250 (read more here) was a one-of-a-kind quadcopter drone with a frame that was made just for one thing — racing. It appears as though the Runner 250 has some competition already, in the form of the Emax Nighthawk Pro.

As you would’ve guessed already, the Emax Nighthawk Pro is again a naked quad with a race-centric frame. As opposed to the 250mm size of the Runner 250, the Nighthawk Pro is 280mm.

The Nighthawk Pro has a Skylight 32 flight controller and has 3000kV self-branded motors, all of which will be powered by a battery of your choice… although Emax suggest you go for a 3S 1500-2200mAh cell.

The Nighthawk Pro comes with a gyroscope, magnetometer, and accelerometer, barometer expansion port should you ever need those. GPS can also be added, which is kind of cool.

An FPV camera sits right in the front of the quad, with a built in transmitter which streams 5.8GHz video.

Overall, the Emax Nighthawk Pro looks like a racing quadcopter for intermediates who still aren’t confident about being able to build their own quadcopter. The pricing isn’t bad too; find the details below.
