  • Overview

Please note, our videos on this page refer to the Version 2 model but both versions are similar.

The SpyHawk FPV (Version 3) is a complete and revolutionary new R/C First Person View system! With this FPV being ready to fly, you can save yourself the hassle of a complicated build process and installation. Glueing the tail is all that is required (to save on box size/shipping of course!).

Being that the SkyHawk is made of crash resistant foam AND has a built in stabilization system, beginners and seasoned pilots both will have a great FPV experience!

The SpyHawk FPV Ready To Fly Version 3 Package Includes:
  • SkyHawk 4 Channel Mini EPO Foam Glider
  • 5.8GHz FPV System with Recording Module & 4GB SD Card
  • 3 Axis flight stabilization system to make flying easy and fun
  • 2.4GHz Radio Transmitter with a built in 5.8GHz video receiver and high resolution 3.5" Color LCD
  • 7.4V 650mAh LiPoly battery and balance charger (Spare Batteries available!)
  • Spare propeller, user manual and glue

Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Trainer & More

UAV pilots are in high demand and are commanding 6 figure salaries! If you have limited RC or limited FPV (First Person Video) experience, this is the best way to learn basic skills! If you are comfortable flying a trainer plane on a simulator, you can fly the Spyhawk! At just 6 oz total all up weight (including battery), it is difficult to damage and it is difficult to inflict damage to other property in a crash! But donít let the small size and the small price fool you. The video quality is excellent. The size of the plane does not matter, because you are controlling it by looking at the video screen, not looking at the plane itself. With the onboard stabilization system, it flies extremely well, even in high wind! At 1/100th the price of many entry level UAVs, the Spyhawk teaches you the following:

  • Piloting skills
  • Battery care
  • Using checklists
  • Adjusting for wind
  • Aerial Photography
  • Flight control mixing
  • Assembly and wiring
  • Basic components of UAVs
  • Aerial stabilization systems
  • Using onscreen flight data
  • Manual takeoffs and landings
  • Counteracting wind turbulence
  • Servo control and control linkages
  • Antennas and wireless transmission
  • Effective communication with your spotter

For Fire Departments, Search and Rescue, and Law Enforcement, this is a great training tool, yet it can be used in the field as well. The Spyhawk has many characteristics of very expensive UAVs at a fraction of the cost! This is a great way to start to implement UAVs into your agencies.

When building the Spyhawk, read this. It explains a little about the building and the setup of the controls.

 

 






Allied countries of the United States regarding shipment of any products from TBM

WARNING - Gasoline and Turbine powered R/C model aircraft are not manufactured to withstand unlimited G's. Any R/C model aircraft can fail, be it a wing folding up or a fuselage breaking in half under too high of a load. Just as any full size aircraft, model R/C aircraft have a maximum G rating. Because you are not in the plane flying it and experiencing the G's and reading the G-meter, it is more difficult to judge the G's on the aircraft, and it is very easy to exceed the limits of the aircraft. Understand that if you perform a snap roll, parachute, wall, blender, knife edge loop, or pull hard on the elevator at almost any speed, you can be putting in excess of 15 G's, even in excess of 30 G's, and most aircraft can only designed to take 10-12 G's. If you perform any violent maneuver, you can break your plane. When I perform hard maneuvers, especially for the first time on an airframe, I am prepared for a failure and am prepared for it as best I can be. This mainly includes performing the maneuver far enough away from spectators that in event of a failure that I am not endangering others. In addition, be prepared for the manufacturer to not pay for a new airframe which is broken during flight. It is common practice for any manufacturer to not replace an airframe which breaks in the air or upon landing. I have only seen manufacturers replace airframes when they have received many of the same failures and the manufacturer determines that there was a design or manufacturing error. If you break an airframe, and you are the only one to do so, then it is probably not the fault of the manufacturer. Please fly safely, and avoid full throttle operation other than at low airspeeds.

R/C model jets, warbirds, aerobatic planes, DJI S1000 Octocopter, and UAV Unmanned Aerial Vehicles to name a few are not a toy! If misused, it can cause serious bodily harm and property damage. Fly only in open areas, and AMA (Academy of Model Aeronautics) approved flying sites. Follow all manufacturer instructions included with your plane, radio, servo's, batteries and engine. Aircraft manufacturers guarantees each kit to be free from defects in both material and workmanship at the date of purchase. This warranty does not cover any component assembled by the customer. All parts of high stress must be inspected and reinforced if necessary by a competent builder. Some parts should be glued again. High stress areas such as firewalls, motor boxes, wing mounts, landing gear mounts, etc., are areas of high concern. Seek help if necessary. In not case shall TBM be liable for the cost of any product it offers which is not manufactured by TBM. The liability to the manufacturer cannot exceed the original cost of the purchased item. Further, TBM reserves the right to change or modify this warranty without notice. In that TBM has no control over the final assembly or materials used for final assembly, no liability shall be assumed nor accepted for any damage resulting from the use by the user of the final user-assembled product. By the act of using the user assembled product, the user accepts all resulting liability. The kit manufacturers have provided you with a top quality, thoroughly tested kit and instructions, but ultimately the quality and fly ability of your finished model depends on how you build it; therefore, we cannot in any way guarantee the performance of your completed model, and no representations are expressed or implied as to the performance or safety of your completed model. It is the user's responsibility to inspect each component for worthiness.
