What can I do with the Nighthawk Pro 280?
Step into the world and enjoy the thrills of first person view (FPV) drone racing with the EMAX Nighthawk Pro 280. The drone is prebuilt and almost ready to fly (ARF) making it great for beginners and seasoned pilots alike. A battery, transmitter (controller) and receiver are the only things needed to get you started. Speed is at the core of the design, with EMAX tilting each motor by 10 degrees which increases the forward momentum of the drone without losing elevation. The carbon fibre frame further contributes to its ability to fly at speed and additionally, it makes the drone highly agile and durable.

Slight tweaks to your drone could be the difference between winning and losing a race, which is why EMAX have used a flight controller and electronic speed controllers (ESCs) which are compatible with open source software. Where the flight controller supports Baseflight and Cleanflight and the ESC supports BLHeli and ONESHOT platforms. In the event of a crash which damages your motors, they can be easily replaced without the need of soldering, thanks to the plug and play socket.

What kind of camera does this have?
Have a FPV of your flights with good picture quality being provided by the on-board 700TVL camera. The camera can be mounted on a tilt too, with the included mounting accessory, allowing you to see great views even during fast flights. A preinstalled FPV 5.8Ghz transmitter is connected to the camera, which allows you to connect the Nighthawk Pro 280 to a pair of FPV goggles or a FPV monitor. With different frequencies selectable a number of googles or monitors are compatible such as FatShark and more, opening you up to a captivating and thrilling world of FPV drone racing.
