ZOHD Nano Talon iNav Conversion + V-Tail Mod + FPV Build Overview

By RagTheNutsOff, 01 Aug 2017 into Mini Talon in Fixed Wing Watch on YouTube »

Howdy, this is a complete overview to the Nano Talon conversion to iNav. Including DVR footage and everything I used in my FPV Nano Talon I bought here https://goo.gl/KHXMm4. FULL details below, including a CLI dump for you to use. Press SHOW MORE to see the details, Matt

Did you spot how smooth the model is in the air this time around? Thats because it's not been as windy as it has been, thus a smooth flight!

IMPORTANT
================
Before we go any further, I feel it's important to stress that this model was bought out of my OWN money, for my own abuses. This was NOT a "Freebie for Review".

I was the first to grab one on pre-order here https://goo.gl/6Ffta2 and I knew immediately that I would end up putting iNav in this model. Which I have now done.

ZOHD Nano Talon iNav Parts List
================
These are ALL the parts that I have used in this build:

- RunCam Swift Mini https://goo.gl/HCQBbs
- TX526 vTx https://goo.gl/yHJ6v8
- Aomway Antenna (RP-SMA) https://goo.gl/SpFU7f
- Omnibus F4 Flight Controller https://goo.gl/GB9SGo
- NEO-M8N GPS Unit https://goo.gl/6ZTkH2
- 6 pin JST SH 1mm spacing lead (eBay is best for this)
- 5x Servo extensions (2 used for the FPV wiring) https://goo.gl/cjDNU5
- 1x Male to Male servo extension lead (for SBUS)
- Turnigy Plush 18A ESC https://goo.gl/Fsgjza
- FrSky L9R Receiver https://goo.gl/NkyzX6
- 3D Printed Antenna Mount https://goo.gl/bZb3cY
- 3D Printed Bottom Scoop https://goo.gl/n7RLs9

Nano Talon V-Tail Mod
================
The Nano talon came with only one servo for the elevator, which is "fine", but I wanted "rudder" action.

As shown in the video I replaced the single servo with two HXT900 9g servos and tada! We now have elevator and rudder action at the rear.

iNav Setup Playlist
================
Below is the link to the playlist for the complete, step-by-step setup & overview to using iNav.

Seeing as the parts cost just one fifth of that of an EagleTree Vector and works just as well, I'm sure you can now appreciate why I have put iNav in the Nano Talon.

ZOHD Nano Talon iNav CLI Dumps
================
It's important to note that the settings I'm sharing below for iNav and the Nano Talon suit my model in this EXACT configuration. If your Nano Talon is different, then you're going to need to tailor it to your own model.

Just the custom V-Tail and Aileron Servo Mix:

Who is ZOHD?
================
ZOHD is actually a trademark of SonicModell. You most likely already know this company as they have created a wide range of models, some re-branded by other RC companies.

Is the Nano Talon made by X-UAV?
================
We've always said that there should be a micro version of the mini talon as the mini talon is a fantastic FPV model. You can see my full setup of the mini talon in this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dRuO3BT5x58

However.... XUAV missed a trick here and this model is not made by X-UAV, instead it's another company called ZOHD.

Note: Those of you that are thinking this is a clone, remember that the original X-UAV Mini Talon was a copy of another model in the first place!
