The much-awaited EMAX Babyhawk micro FPV drone is finally on sale. The 85mm-wheelbase micro brushless quadcopter packs a Femto F3 flight controller and an AIO camera with a 25mW VTX.
The micro FPV market is having a bit of a purple patch. A lot of new companies have come up with affordable micro FPV quads that have appealed to beginners and veterans alike. It wouldn’t be unfair to say that the EMAX Babyhawk is probably the most anticipated release in the micro FPV (or indoor FPV) segment.
It’s powered by four powerful 1104 5000kV brushless motors working together with some Bullet 6A BLHeli 2S-4S ESCs. The camera on board is a 520TVL CMOS 5.8G 40CH with a VTX power that goes from 25mW to 200mW, to switch depending on the environment.
EMAX say the 85mm brushless motor produces about 500 grams of thrust using a 2S LiPo battery. Its propellers have been custom-designed by EMAX themselves and measure 2.3 inches.
