With a name that sounds very much like a military UAV, the new FPV (First Person View) Spy Hawk RTF from Hubsan is the first of its kind. The Spy Hawk is the first video-equipped RC airplane with a built-in flight stabilization system. It's a complete package including battery, charger and a 2.4G transmitter with integrated 3.5 inch FPV video monitor!
The transmitter can be programmed for two types of management - beginner and expert. Within each of the types, you can program different values of sensitivity for each channel from 0% to 100%. Each mode allows you to adjust the sensitivity of the controller to your personal taste and your level of experience. The Spy hawk is an easy to fly plane and will suit beginners but has loads to offer to experienced pilots too looking for a FPV system. The simple design with pushing prop and excellent gliding ability makes it very stable in flight and easy to fly.
To get the FPV experience even further we recommend using the model in combination with latest video projecting glasses available on top of this page. The 5 megapixel camera takes live color video, and the module sends the video feed to the transmitter's video display. The Autopilot feature can be switched on and off and is very helpful during flight at high altitudes.
The Spy Hawk is made of durable and easily repaired EPO foam. Though the plane is called a "Ready to Fly" there is some minor assembly required on the wings and tail. The wings simply plug into place and are reinforced with a carbon fiber rod and the tail surfaces do need to be glued into place. A tube of fast-drying adhesive is included. The servos are installed and the ailerons are fully setup with control linkages in place. All of the electronics and video equipment come installed and are ready to go. The 2.4GHz transmitter is of the best quality with precise, smooth gimbals, and digital trims. It's equipped with two short fold-able antennas and a 3.5-inch LCD monitor with excellent resolution and image quality.
Intelligent automatic control and video signal binding enables you to fly more than one Spy Hawk glider at the same time, so you can chase your friends around with full high quality video and sound. Press the enter button on your rubberized plastic remote and the camera will start to record your progress through the sky and save the video to the built in 4GB SD card. It even features a sunlight screen guard that can be attached to the remote enabling you to watch the video feed when the weather is sunny. Cool!
