I've had a couple of eMax Nanohawks and was disappointed by their fragility and constantly having to replace props. So I gave the Meteor65 a try. I've flown it now for several months, and it is now my go-to for backyard and acrobatic flying. Compared to the Meteor, the Nanohawk was like driving on ice, every hard maneuver had to be anticipated-- the Meteor, on the other hand, has much better control authority, throttle response, and is overall more agile. It was harder to set up, but support was helpful, and I don't like how the camera overheats when on the bench. The props tend to break rather than bend-- but I'm having to replace far fewer props than with the Nanohawk. And just so you know the comparison was an apples to apples comparison-- I used the exact same tune on both drones, and had even modified the Meteor to use the batteries I use on the Nanohawk, since I had a big batch of those already. A word of caution-- since the batteries on both models can be positioned a bit forward or backwards, be sure to keep the CG a bit forward (backward = unexpected instability). 4 cheers for the Meteor65!
The vtx came broken
My one is not working because the Frame is bend. Really low quality....
This is miles ahead of the acrobee in every way! Fantastic speed, good survivability, great camera, tuned right out of the box. I accidently flew this bad boy right into a water bowl and it survived!!! Looking to get into racing this little drone and blow away competition! Not sure why more people aren't talking about this!
I’ve been flying this drone for a couple of months now. I’ve broken some stuff and bent a ton of props and it keeps on getting up for more. I’m very happy with the way it flies inside. It’s fast. Not for beginners. I love it. I’ll get another if it breaks.
