Emax Nanohawk 65mm Brushless 1S FPV Racer Drone Fright Test Review

This very lightweight micro whoop FPV racer drone provides pretty impressive performance with only a 1S battery. It’s very resistant to crashes. I banged it up pretty good in preparation for this review with no apparent effect. It should be a great indoor flier to keep you busy through the upcoming winter nights.

– 65mm tiny whoop.
– Flexible plastic blade protectors and carbon fiber frame makes this a tough crash resistant drone. I’ve smacked it high speed into that back wall numerous times in practice flights for this review. It still looks and runs good as new.
– Very lightweight at only 20 grams.
– 40 channel 25mW video transmitter with OSD and Smartaudio capability.
– F4 flight control board loaded with Betaflight 4.2.0.
– Runcam Nano 3 camera with very good WDR performance.
– Brushless 0802 19000KV motors.
– 5A continuous BLHeli_S ESC.
– Comes with one 3.8V LiHV battery with GNB27 battery plug. This low resistance plug eliminates battery voltage drop which is a significant problem with other connectors (such as PH2.0). Drone can also use similar ET2.0 plug 1S batteries.
– Also comes with 6 port 1S USB LiPo battery charger.

– GNB27 and (ET2.0) plugs are somewhat difficult to insert and unplug from the battery receptical. Take care when inserting so that you do not force and bend the receptacle pins.
– Does not have 2S capability, limiting its use to indoor flights (or outdoors on windless days).
– It’s advertised as a beginner’s drone. However, it does not come with necessary equipment to get it into the air (such as transmitter and FPV goggles). It also requires some flight skills and knowledge of transmitter/receiver binding and Betaflight configuration. I’m speculating that its crash resistance may be the reason why it’s advertised as such.
