Where was Music Applause? Hey everyone! Welcome to my channel! Well, i’m, pretty stoked, because today i get to show you a drone i’ve had in my possession for several weeks now. This is the emacs baby, hawk 2 hd. Now emacs is a company that’s, very popular in the fpv drone world and they’re known for making low cost fpv drones that are good quality. So everybody who’s in the fpv has an emax drone of one type or another, but they never really went into the digital era. It was always analog, so this is their first foray into digital and this baby hawk too. Let me tell you right now: this is freaking awesome. This is a really really good drone. I mean not just really good, but i mean really really good. I had a lot of fun flying this thing, so let me tell you a bit about it: emacs when they normally send me a new product. They have this big letter that comes with it. That says: hey thanks for showcasing our product. Could you please make note of the following points when you talk to your audience, i didn’t get one of those unless they forgot to put one in so i know nothing about this, because even the website, you know when i’m making this video it’s not even active. So i i have no idea what the specs are on this so i’m, just gon na guess really quick. I can tell you what i can tell you, which is what i know on my own observations.
This thing weighs very little. If you stick a massive, i mean a massive 850 4s milliamp battery on this thing, it is still under 250 grams it’s incredible the way this thing flies with all this weight and yet it’s still under 250 grams. Next thing i want to tell you, is it’s not very noisy for a little drone, and i think it’s due to the cemetar props, is that how you pronounce it cimatar, scimitar, scimitar props, maybe i think that’s, maybe what they’re called anyways these props are really interesting. In their design they look like something from batman. You know they’re, i don’t know just the way they look, but these things are like 3.5 inches and really quiet. The bad thing is inside the box. When you see the unboxing, i only got one set. They didn’t give me a spare set. So if i destroy these and i’m out, maybe maybe the products when you buy them. You get two sets, but since this was an advanced sending to me before it was even on the market, and i only got one set when i attached this to betaflight. I see there are two pid profiles, so i left it on the default profile because i’m flying under 250 grams, but there’s a second pit profile in betaflight for this and that’s designed, if you put on some heavy camera on the front, because then you know your Balance center of you know, balance is off it’s more on the nose, so they have a pin for it, which is really good.
So you can get a lot of really good flight if you choose the second pit, if you have a lot of weight in the front now here we get to the good part, where i’m going to guess all right. I know since it’s an emax product and emax products are not very expensive and they have a digital system in it. It’S got to be not an overly expensive digital system, so i can tell it’s a cadex system, which is perfectly fine, it’s, a cad eggs vista unit in the back. It works with all the dji products in this video. I flew it with all digital products. It’S perfectly binds simply to that. The camera in the front is got ta, be a nebula. It’S got to be a nebula. The image quality from the camera looks really good, so i don’t think it’s a nebula pro, but it’s, probably a nebula too. I don’t know. I could be totally wrong when you watch this review, you’re going to know more than me, because then the website’s going to be up and all the specs are there on the rear of the drone for the digital transmission of the video quality and the actual telemetry And everything like that they’re actually using a brand name they’re using the cad dx kit x, uh mushroom antenna, which is really good, so that’s got a really good transmission range perfectly designed for this drone. Now for the brushless motors on here, i don’t have any information.
Other than what my eyeballs can see, so let my eyeballs do the the talking for you, so it says eco, echo, motors 2700 kv and finally, the thing that i love about this drone is the carbon fiber it’s got like a four mil carbon fiber frame on This thing and it’s even got a plastic cover over the bottom, for, like me, i’m flying in snow you’re, gon na see i’m out flying this on a cold winter’s day. So i can land in the snow. With this no problem, you can see right through the bottom, but it’s just a plastic cover over which is pretty smart on their behalf. So four mil carbon fiber you’re not going to break that you can smash into almost anything there’s, no way that’s going to break. Look at the design it’s designed not to break it’s really good, and on the top it looks like a two mil carbon fiber frame. Doesn’T matter. No one ever breaks the top. You always break the arms if anything, but look at the arms it’s like it’s super secure. Every arm is like double double double reinforced and super thick carbon fiber all right. So enough of me talking, let me show you the flight. Now i have to mention one thing. When i flew this, i stuck the insta360 go camera on it. I didn’t have the i couldn’t put the go to camera on it, because at that time that i made this review, i didn’t have the go to camera.
I only had the go one camera so insta360 go. I stuck it in this 3d mounted greenish yellowy thing in the front, except if you’re into the fpv hobby and you get these mounts really really cold, which was a freezing cold day, but they don’t stretch anymore. So when i tried to put the camera in, i couldn’t get it in all the way, because the tpu mount didn’t stretch so you’re gon na see you’re, actually gon na see the mount in the video, at least in one segment of my video and then. Finally, i clued in that i could squeeze it in by warming it up in my hands and then you’ll see it. It disappears anyways i’m, going to show you the video and all i’m going to tell you right now. Is that it’s a really really good drone? So watch the video of my flight and all my little tests and then come back to me and i’ll show you some more stuff check this out. First thing i want to try with this little guy is to see how noisy it is outside here, because over in that area, there’s people ice fishing, and i want to buzz this down in that area, and i don’t want to disturb anybody. So if it’s super noisy, it won’t go, but if it’s not very noisy i’ll, do it so let’s go fly it right now, all right, let’s hit the arm switch and see how noisy the props are not too bad let’s.
Take it up. Oh! That is quiet, that is quiet that is not noisy at all. That is quiet. This is gon na, be a blast to buzz around people, because it’s not that noisy all right, let’s uh do this thing. I’Ll pick it up hit the arm switch and catch. It lovely steve all right, let’s, go fly it for cameras. We have the pilot’s camera down here and the insta360 go up here. So i’ll show you video from the go and the pilot camera all right. I’M gon na sit over here, i’ll zoom in to myself. The drone is over there there’s, only one guy out there that i saw past me and he said it was okay. If i fly around them so let’s go see if i can find them there’s, not many people out here ice fishing. At the moment i can see farther down there. I thought there was houses and ice fishing for miles, but i guess the ice is going to start getting thin, so they pulled them out, but let’s go check it out. Get the antennas up. Acro well hit the wrong button, hit the wrong button. There we go put it in acro mode jeez. These gloves, i can’t see anything all right. Um i hear it going let’s go there. We go so so far. First, impressions very smooth flyer, very smooth, let’s, bring it back to me just to make sure everything’s a okay, so come back this way there.
I am there’s my little jeep i’m going to whiz over this way, past the trees and over the electrical wires and then back over. You can see it’s early morning, there’s there’s pretty much. Nobody around i’m over here go over the wires and then down over to me. There we go out into the wild, so this is an area where people in the winter time will ice fish. You can see it’s not really used that much, because the ice is starting to melt as of today, because spring is coming so the skating rink is here, hasn’t been cleared, it doesn’t, look like it got our giant fish down here, zoom down around the fish. This drone is amazing the way it flies i’m, almost like it’s, almost like i’m flying. I see me whoop it’s, so nice and smooth really well tuned, really well tuned. Hey mr fish here let’s go slow around the fish and check out the fish. All right! Let’S get it nice and slow, so we can get a good look at it there. We are come nice and low to the road. This drone is pretty darn fast too, because here i am just moving along i’m gon na come down to the road here. Get off away from the power lines, look at that eh and then we go over this way. We have the people who are remaining for ice fishing. We got a guy in his atv, not many down there.
Let’S go back and check out these ones down here. So i’m, going to come down there’s a nice fishing hut. You can see holes in the ice where some of the huts have been removed right here, it’s all good. You could have a lot of fun with this little drone it’s, so decent i’m just going to get out of the sun here, i’ll stop buzzing. These people, maybe they’re having their morning coffee and then over here is where all the gear is in this area. These blue things. Well, what do you think? Those are you guys who live by lakes and the ocean and everything? Well, these would be boats that are put away for the winter time, all right, such a smooth, smooth drone. Hopefully, this video is coming out nice because it just looks like it feels like i’m flying on a cloud here, it’s, so nice and uh, smooth, it’s, really good. All right, let’s bring it back over to me. Let’S go over to the road go over to the other area of water. This is just over the wires up here. This is just frozen, frozen, uh, well, it’s, a frozen river is what it is so let’s come on back, bring it down nice and low. Follow this trail there we go just got to watch it when i come up, but there’s no car, but i don’t hear one so we’re all good and buzz by me. This thing should do uh.
Let me just turn it around and face me and i’ll. Do some a little bit of freestyle to show you that it should do it? No problem and let’s try a simple little flip there. We go nice and slow. I always like doing slow flips because they look better on camera or they’re, not called flips. They’Re called rolls i always get the flips and the rolls mixed up when i talk about it all right so uh. This drone is checking out aok, oh my god, that water does not look like a good color down there check that out. I don’t know if the colors are bringing it out, but look at that. Somebody had a ice hut there with that water. I would not stand there that looks like you’d fall right through it looks pretty darn thin. All right, let’s bring it on back, bring it on back let’s, bring it nice and low to the ground on back there we go let’s i’m going to bring it way down. Here we go Music, slow it down, let’s, just crawl up to where i am just go over here over here and there i am let’s, put it in front of the camera Music in front of the camera right there and land it blink. So, as you saw with this little guy here, i could do super fast flying super slow flying super smooth flying freestyle flying. It is the whole package in this tiny little drone all right.
So how long was that flight you’re wondering well this here, camera only records for five minutes. The insta360 go first version version one only records for five minutes in fpv. Let me tell you this every time i took this out for a flight with this camera, and i re watched the video the video stopped after five minutes, but i was still flying for another couple of minutes so on an 850 milliamp hour 4s battery on this I’M gon na guess you’re getting what six seven minutes of flight time, something really good, maybe even more so. The next thing i want to show you is: what comes in the box check this out now, like all captain drone unboxings, this will be quick, here’s. The box and if you open the box you’ll see some documentation, you know the normal emacs documentation, plus some cadets vista kit, documentation plus some stickers. Then in the box we see our drone and take a look at this beautiful drone. Look at the carbon fiber arms wow. Those are thick really well made like most fpv drones on the market. They do include spare screws standoffs and nuts. Here we see the included props, really interesting design check that out a little bit different than anything i’ve seen before kind of reminds me of batman and speaking of the props emacs uses a props in configuration, which means that your left front prop is going to spin Clockwise and your right front prop is going to spin counterclockwise next you’ll have to put the screws in just match up the holes in the props with the holes in the motors and place two screws to secure the props.
When completed. Your props should look like this you’ll see here that the baby hawk 2 hd only weighs 140 grams, and, if you add a 4s 850 milliamp hour battery, it brings it up to 244 grams, still under 250 grams, all right, so there you have it so go Check out the website, the links are below to where you can find this drone. I don’t know the price but i’m gon na guess, it’s, probably not that expensive uh. You know. Obviously, digital systems bump up the price because you have to pay for the digital camera and digital unit, but then they just add on their stuff. So i don’t know. Maybe their drone is only like a hundred dollars more than the digital system. In there anyways check out the links below you’ll see what the prices for this i i don’t think it’s very expensive. It can’t be, and the other thing i want to tell you is it’s hd, so you will need the dji fpv goggles if you don’t, have any i’ll put a link below to that. You do not need this here, radio, because they did send me a d8 receiver as well. If i wanted to install it myself but i’m sure on their website, they probably have something that you can just click on and order form and say, install a d8 receiver in it. And then you can use any type of radio you want like these ones, the ones over here see i have radios all over the place.
Any of those radios will work because a d8 is pretty much like an fr sky d8 protocol. So it’ll work with any rc radio on the planet. All right guys hope you enjoyed this video. If you did, please give it a thumbs up and if you have questions on this drone, just post them below i’ll get back to you and for now i say thanks for watching stay tuned for many more drone reviews coming up in the future Music bye, Music.
