Following the great success of the first generation Hawk 5″ drone, EMAX planning to release two redesigned successors. The main difference between the Hawk Pro and Hawk Sport is around the propulsion system and the video rig. While the Pro comes with Pulsar 2306 motors and Caddx Ratel camera, the Sport has ECO 2207 motors and Caddx Turbo Micro F2 camera. As you can guess, the “Pro” edition is slightly pricey than the “Sport”. You will need to pay about $50 extra for the better motors. BTW, both editions have 4S and 6S power versions.
Despite that the protective canopy has an aerodynamic curved shape, Emax managed to design a GoPro mount for it. The camera holder is sold separately for $10 and it is compatible with the Hero 5, 6 and 7.
The Mini Magnum III flight stack integrates 3 layers. The bottom board is a powerful 35A BLHeli_32 ESC. In the middle of the stack is the versatile F4 flight controller with on-board OSD and OMNIBUSF4 Firmware. The last layer, with a bit smaller foot print, is the 5.8G/37CH video transmitter (VTX).
