CDW - Sky Hawk from Red5 - 2

The Spy Hawk is a 3 channel glider with a built in FPV (first person view) video system that sends a high quality, 5 megapixel live stream to the 3.5” LCD screen on the transmitter. It features an advanced stabilisation system that makes it super easier to fly, even for first time pilots with little or no practice at all. Simply switch on the ‘autopilot’ and the built in gyro will kick-in, keeping the plane at the correct altitude. With the plane actively giving you a helping hand, you get to concentrate on the fun side of flying.


The Sky Hawk has a range of up to 600 metres with an average flight time of 20 to 30 minutes from a single 7.4v lithium-ion polymer battery. The Spy Hawk is made from EPO crash resistant foam, so in the unlikely event that it will allow you to crash it, it is strong enough to resist a bumpy landing. Thanks to its reasonable size, it’s easy to carry around, and is perfect for a trip to the park or anywhere else you’d like to get a great bird’s eye view.

The Intelligent automatic control and video signal binding, enable you to fly more than one Spy Hawk glider at the same time, so you can chase your friend’s plane around and record the dog fight with high quality video and sound. Press the enter button on your rubberised remote and the camera will start to record your progress through the sky and save the video to a 4GB SD card. It even features a sunlight screen guard for the remote that allows you to see the screen in the unlikely event the sun is shining!
