    Top notch quadcopter
    Firstly, this isn't recommended for brand new pilots. What I mean is: the Nighthawk Pro 280 is a SERIOUS quadcopter designed for experienced pilots. The actual quad itself arrived/landed in a pretty big box. Most of the parts and components were bundled (e.g. blades, camera frame, etc) so you can expect some assembly work before this thing gets moving. This is a large size drone with a dizzying array of features. It comes with hefty EMAX 2204 2300kV motors for the horsepower so you know it's rocking. In terms of flying, the 280 requires some initial trim after assembly but once that's done, no problems. It's a powerful beast in flight. Didn't notice too many issues dealing with strong winds although there will be a limit to what it can handle in terms of its performance envelope. The 280 is a true powerhouse but still has incredible finesse and precision flying. An exceptional quadcopter.
    Cutting edge stuff here!

    Looks very well made. I haven't flown it yet but I have read loads of good reviews of it. I will keep training on my smaller quads and also on the PC using FPV Freerider and Hotprops FPV Race Simulator before I dare take this one up in the air !
    I also bought a runcam 2 to record my flights and it fits perfictly on the stabilized platform.
    Not for beginers!

    Excellent quadcopter for the money. Highly recommend for anybody in the market for a racing model quadcopter.
    Go with the arf model. The radio transmitter is more on the toy side than a real quality radio.

    Manque que des hélices supplémentaireset c'est parfait
    Je l'ai depuis 1 moi .tout les dimanches, je l'utilise. Mon plus beau cadeau de Noel. je conseil au novice de ce faire la main sur un plus petit modèle. Bien emballé, la boîte a montré des dommages, mais le contenu est en parfait état.
    Des hélices en plus dans la boite et c'est nickel.

FAQ for EMAX Nighthawk Pro 280 RTF Mixed Quadcopter with Camera Transmitter

  • Why does one of the blades not spin?

    1. Check the tightness of the blades;

    2. Remove the blade that does not spin to see if the motor is working properly;

    3. If the motor does not work, check whether the motor gear is connected properly;

    4. Remove the body shell, check if the motor cable is connected to the mainboard appropriately.

  • How to bind the quadcopter and the transmitter?

    First turn on the quadcopter power switch, place it in a horizontal position, then turn on the transmitter. Push the left throttle lever to the highest position, and then pull it back to the lowest position. You will hear a clear "di, di" sound and the indicator light will stop flashing and just stay lit, meaning the frequency adjustment is completed and your quadcopter is ready to take off.
  • Why the indicator light of the quadcopter is flashing?

    1. The quadcopter is not binding to the transmitter correctly, please refer to the user manual to re-modulate the frequency;

    2. Battery power is insufficient, recharge the battery.

  • Why one of the blades spin slower than others?

    1. Check the tightness of the blades ;

    2. Adjust the trim key ;

    3. Re-modulate the frequency, the quadcopter must be put on a flat ground;

    4. Re-calibrate gyroscope.

  • How to distinguish the steering of a blade?

    Blades are usually marked with A, B or R. Diagonal direction blades have the same steering, adjacent blades have opposite steering.
  • How to judge the steering of a motor?

    1. Usually, motor with red and blue wires is usually a forward motor, while the reversed motor presents black and white wires. Diagonal direction motors have the same steering, adjacent motors have opposite steering.

    2. On the motor surface sometimes you can find CW or CCW. CW stands for forward motor, while CCW refers to reversed motor.

  • Why the transmitter has no reaction when operated?

    1. Check and make sure that the batteries are installed by the right polarity;

    2. Battery power is insufficient, please full charge the battery, or replace with a full charge battery.

  • Why the voltage of single battery cell is lower?

    Single battery cell voltage imbalance is a normal phenomenon. Large current discharge will usually lead to voltage difference. This may be caused by poor contact between battery and charger, and the customer should adopt balance charge mode to charge the battery.
  • Why even though all blades spin, the quadcopter still cannot flip / rotate / take off?

    1. Battery power is insufficient, recharge the battery;

    2. Check whether the blades are installed correctly.
