This is my eMax Baby Hawk. I got it thinking it would be fun for indoors, but this thing is WAY too fast for indoor use! It also flies pretty bad and not stable at all. The flight control board is held down with some really cheap double sided foam tape. Its advised to take apart the frame so you can remove the stock tape and replace it with high quality VHB. After doing this to my quad, it still flew like ass. Several attempts to tune the quad failed.

I am not very impressed with this and plan on selling it.

In late 2019 DJI made inroads into the FPV scene with their remarkable low-latency digital system. It gave us a 720p video feed with latency on-par with the status quo, analog video. Traditionally we've used analog video systems for low-latency video, but the video quality is far from ideal. It's a trade-off we've been willing to accept for the control. Now we've got the best of both worlds and what..
