How to Get Started

Introduction to the World of FPV

What is FPV?

Virtual Reality & RC Combined

The RC hobby has been around for decades as a way to experience what it's like to drive or pilot smaller scale versions of popular vehicles. But with FPV technology, getting the full experience is closer than ever.

Barrier to Entry

Just like videogames, there is a learning curve to getting started in FPV, but jumping right in with top level equipment and vehicles can make the hobby very expensive as you make mistakes. At EMAX, our goal is to simplify the process as easily and as accessibly as possible to get anyone into the joys of FPV.

How FPV Works

01
Radio Controller

You'll need a radio controller in order to control your RC vehicle. The majority of modern radios run on 2.4GHz as it offers great reception, penetration, and minimal latency.

02
Wireless Zero-Latency Video

Most FPV systems operate on a 5.8GHz band, very close to 5GHz Wi-Fi. This band offers high quality analog video with Zero-Latency in order to offer the most immersive experience possible.

03
Vehicle Of Choice

You can install a FPV system onto practically anything, but the most common choice would be quadcopter drones. Drones are mechanically simple and durable, able to withstand abuse while offering a Bird's Eye View of your surroundings. Paired with acrobatic performance, pilots will feel as if they are piloting a fighter jet.

Getting Started

Level 1 - Interceptor

Getting used to the Out-Of-Body experience of FPV takes a bit of practice before even jumping into drone flight. With the Interceptor, you can enjoy the FPV experience from a more familiar RC Car platform. Being in the driver's seat in a small race car will make you feel like you are going over a hundred on a track. Don't let the size fool you, it's a breathtaking and wild ride.

Level 2 - EZ Pilot

Looking to step up to your first flying experience? The EZ Pilot is an all-encompassing drone for first time pilots. It features altitude hold so pilots only need to set the height they wish to fly at and cruise around. Also programmed into the drone is a One-Stick-Control beginner mode. After taking off and having your height set at a comfortable level, you can cruise around just moving the right stick on the controller instead of having to manually adjust all aspects of the drone on a traditional two stick mode.

Beginner

Level 3 - Tinyhawk II

You have some experience piloting a drone and looking for a performance indoor racing drone to learn on? The Tinyhawk II offers unparalleled performance, aerodynamics, and durability to learn acrobatic flight as well as compete in "whoop class" competitive racing. Features 3 modes to help pilots graduate from basic gyroscopic level flight to professional "Rate" mode with no gyro leveling assistance.

Level 4 - Tinyhawk II Freestyle

If you have experience flying drones outdoors, the Tinyhawk II Freestyle offers a platform to grow and excel with outdoor acrobatics. With excellent power-to-weight ratio backed by performance and flight time, the drone will allow a large amount of forgiveness with mistakes when practicing tricks or racing. Backed with 2s performance, this is the most difficult beginner drone to start with and is best for those with some previous experience looking to level up their skills.


Comes with everything you need to get started, from a controller, FPV goggle, Tinyhawk II Freestyle drone, batteries, and charger.

Intermediate

Level 5 - Tinyhawk II Race

For FPV enthusiasts looking for more power and performance with the capability to race friends and small meetups, the Tinyhawk II Race is the next step up. Operating on 2s power with a smaller profile, this powerful drone accelerates quickly giving the pilot an advantage in tight technical courses. Being a part of the Tinyhawk series, this drone uses the same batteries with your Tinyhawk kit and is also compatible with the controller and goggle that comes with the Tinyhawk RTF kits, making this a must-have upgrade to your existing equipment for outdoor flying.

Expert

Level 10 - Hawk Sport

For experienced pilots looking to race or capture action camera footage, the Hawk Sport provides an affordable platform to meet your needs. Flying a larger 5 inch racing drone is the dream of every pilot when starting out, but should be approached with caution until enough experience is obtained. When jumping to our 5 inch drone options, by this point you should have graduated to more specialized equipment for your controller and goggle due to the dangerous nature of a larger drone.


You will also need to abide by FAA regulations when flying a larger drone which you can find more about at https://www.faa.gov/

Level 10 - Hawk Pro

For serious pilots looking to race or capture action camera footage, the Hawk Pro provides a premium platform to meet your needs. The Hawk Pro features our flagship Power System offering top-of-the-line performance, speed, and efficiency. Where every moment counts, the Hawk Pro meets the demand.
