Next Generation Tinyhawk

This has been out awhile now, but I love my original Tinyhawk so much that I feel I still need to write this news article on the updated Tinyhawk II. There's a lot of updates here right down to the frame itself. It's an all new frame that is even more durable than the last. They improved the video transmission and the camera it comes with is the Runcam Nano 2 inside a new cam mount with adjustable tilt options. The FPV transmitter allows adjustable power output of 25mw, 100mw and 200mw. The original TH was pretty fast, but this new version has a 7% increase in power allowing greater agility and speeds on a race course or for freestyle. The biggest update over the original though is the Tinyhawk II can use both 1S and now 2S lipo batteries. The Tinyhawk II sells for $109.99. More details and specs below.

Love it!


Been flying the TH2 around the yard quite a bunch over the last couple weeks. LOVE THIS THING!

My thoughts: Flights on 1S are quite lively, smooth, plenty of power. 2S can be a handful; I have throttle scaled on a dial. If I had to pick I would just stick with 1s even outdoors. 2S can be fun for bigger spaces but for backyard flying 1s is plenty.

I swapped the nano camera for a runcam racer nano 2. The stock nano was very good indoors but "too red" outdoors. With the racer nano 2 you can change settings to get image just right. Pricey for sure, but worth it imo.

The frame is VERY robust. I'm mostly a fixed wing flier so still learning to fly quads. I had to replace my mobula 7 frames quite a few times, but this thing is amazing.... just bounces off trees and it's fine.

Overall I'd recommend the TH2... lots of fun!

I wish I had waited for this to come out. But as the Mobula 6 was out of stock for some time, I decided to get the TinyHawk S. I wanted something to fly during the winter season, especially after having been through some personal grief due to losing my dad last year.

A friend purchased the II and when preparing it for him, binding to his transmitter, setting up a throttle limit, etc, I noticed it's a nicer quad to fly than the S. Especially like the fact that you can now bind in D16 mode, so I don't have to switch back and forth between D8 and D16 mode on my Taranis.

loving this thing but lost the camera protection part and the hardware that held it in in a crash and tumble into tall grass . Anyone know where I would find those particular parts available?

Any chance this would be offered in a DSM? FWIW, they use flat head screws that do not go into countersunk holes (?).

Thinking of getting this to learn to fly quadcopters. I am planning on getting the rtf since the transmitter is smaller which would be better for my 6yo. Is there a better combo for a small kid to learn to fly? I guess eventually I will upgrade the transmitter but I also wonder if I can bind it to other drones?

When testing my flying buddy's TH II flight times on 1S were between 3 1/2 and 4 minutes, indoor, slowly shooting gaps etc. On 2S I struggled to get 3 minutes if I remember well.

The goggle video quality was about what you would expect and decent for ride alongs but you will want to upgrade there. Nice to have a box to carry everything and not lug a larger pack. The small controller is nice to have as you don't need a full size TX. Worth the $50 IMO.

If I look at their web site, they have a package for $175 that has the small controller AND goggles. I don't see where you can buy the quad and transmitter without the goggles. Is that where the $150 comes from?
