We were looking for you again in search of a racing drone with FPV mode. We stumbled upon Emax Tinyhawk. A damn small mini drone for indoor use.

Despite its small size, this model can reach a maximum speed of 15 kilometers per hour. However, the disadvantage is the short flight time of only 4 minutes.

For around € 90, you will receive a set consisting of an FPV racing drone, remote control and FPV goggles.

Technical data and facts

4 brushless electric motors 08025 with extra stable ball bearings are installed. This improves performance and quality as well as extends service life. We really like the design of the inverted motor itself, even if the motors were slightly larger, which would give them more power. 54 kilometers per hour is a significant speed that a copter can reach. Please note that the model is more suitable for indoor use, ideally in a large room.

To make the motors better serviced, these are plug-in motors.

Thanks to the built-in MPU6000 gyroscope, which ensures low vibration operation, and the fast F4 processor, the aircraft is particularly stable and quiet in flight.

Design

Small, compact and comfortable – these are the main features that catch the eye when looking at a quadcopter.

It is also impossible to fold the drone, there is no need for this, because its small size fits even in a trouser pocket.

The base frame is around 75mm, which is pretty small for a racing drone. The mini camera is located above. In addition, the rotor blades are well protected, so even beginners will have no problems getting their first flight experience with this model. The stable design allows the camera to forgive one fall or another.

camera

The built-in camera has 37 channels in total. It is a 600 TVL CMOS sensor with a transmitter power of 25 mW.

These cameras are very popular with racing drones because they are cheap. At the same time, the image and video quality is good, but could be better.

Channel

The EMAX E6 transmitter with 6 channels and a 2.4 GHz ISM band, that is, 2400 MHz to 2483.5 MHz, serves as a transmitter.

Battery power and flight time

The flight battery is only 450 mAh. It is a 1S battery of 4.35V and a capacity of 80c / 160c.

In our opinion, the battery power is too low, as the maximum flight time that results from this is about 4 minutes. Ultimately, however, this is also the case where the drone is just darn small and the best battery needs to be larger to be able to store more charge capacity and significantly increase flight time.

Conclusion

Despite some drawbacks, the Emax Tinyhawk Indoor FPV Racing drone is definitely recommended. We were particularly surprised at the high speed this drone can achieve, but we were also worried about the short flight times.
