This video includes the Line Of Sight Maiden Flights for my new EMAX Babyhawk Micro 2S Brushless FPV Racing Drone. I flew it around a small nearby field with my GF on the camera testing out two dramatically different batteries.

This is the Unboxing video for my new EMAX Babyhawk Micro 2S Brushless FPV Racing Drone.

Unboxing Only - EMAX Babyhawk Micro 2S Brushless FPV Racing Drone (7 min 50 sec)

Here are my review notes for this Micro FPV Drone:

Pros:
- The camera is set at an upward angle for fast FPV flight
- It cames with a 2S brushless setup pre-installed
- The price point is very reasonable price
- PNP and BNF versions are available
- It accepts and flies well with a wide range of battery options
- You can optimize it in Betaflight

Cons
- It requires soldering in a small space with the PNP version
- You have to setup and arm it in Betaflight

It is a bit different than most of my other RC Quadcopters, RC Multirotors, or RC Drones. This doesn't come RTF with its own radio. I got the PNP version and use it with my Spektrum DX6. The receiver I am using is the SPM4648 DSMX FPV Racing Serial Receiver, which had to be soldered onto the Femto F3 FlightController/PDB board.

It does comes in a BNF version like the Blade Torrent 110 and Blade Nano QX2 FPV, but this is the PNP version.

This is the maiden outdoor flight video with my new MJX Bugs 3 Drone Quadcopter Outdoor with Runcam 2 Flight Footage:

MJX Bugs 3 Drone Quadcopter Outdoor Maiden Flight In Strong Wind With Runcam 2 Flight Footage (5 min 53 sec)

In this video I do two flights, both in some very strong wind. In the first I rip around and do flips getting a feel for its performance capabilities. For the second flight, I put Velcro in the bottom of the GoPro Ready holder and got some flight video from this brushless platform.

This is my Unboxing and Review Video with a quick indoor flight:
