Beautiful Autumn FPV + "Happy Finish"

By RagTheNutsOff, 24 Sep 2017 into Mini Talon in Fixed Wing Watch on YouTube »

This was a couple of days ago. Join in for nothing short of a fantastical flight in the Mini Talon. This is the UK Autumn near it's finest. Full setup details for the Mini Talon below. Enjoy the flight, Matt

For a complete overview to the Mini Talon, see this episode https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dRuO3BT5x58

Model
==
X-UAV Mini Talon, bought on Banggood for £37.42 when it was on sale and also note I used a coupon to get down to this price too (was £46.67). Even at full price, this is a LOT of model for your money.

You can view/purchase this model here: https://goo.gl/cTgSN3

Note #1
If you're in the EU, check the Banggood EU warehouse as it's generally cheaper to buy from there than from China.

Note #2
I bought this model out of my OWN money for my own abuses. It took a while to build as I laminated it, which I'm glad I did!

Motor
==
I'm using a SunnySky X2216 1250Kv https://goo.gl/7EexbF which draws 6A for about 40mph!

Propeller
==
8x6 APC - https://goo.gl/MCgRbe

ESC
==
I used a HobbyKing 60A Turnigy Plush ESC here https://goo.gl/2IEk7V, although a 40A ESC would be fine, such as most of these on BG here https://goo.gl/Uc0kUO

Servos
==
I'm using Tower Pro MG90S https://goo.gl/97ueBZ and also I have used these twisted servo extension wires https://goo.gl/KsJgj7 for both the servos and for the wiring looms.

Control Horns
==
The provided control horns were crap, I used my own bought from Banggood here https://goo.gl/ZRD2kS (these are amazing, not broken one yet!)

Transmitter & Receiver
==
I'm using a Taranis https://goo.gl/6HK8Ym & L9R receiver https://goo.gl/1u1syv

Flight Controller
==
Using a Eagle Tree Vector was a no-brainer for me.

Available in the UK/EU from here https://goo.gl/WcvMGU and the US here https://goo.gl/h7257J

I used some foam board to make a tray for the Vector to sit upon. That worked out really well!

Cable Tie Restraints
=======
I'm using these to keep the wiring tidy bought from Screwfix https://goo.gl/ZP2j8j

Battery
=======
5200mAh 4S 10C Multistar Battery https://goo.gl/PEfZi1

Video Transmitter
=======
I'm using a ImmersionRC vTx - but do check your county's legal requirements.

FPV Camera
=======
Again a no-brainer for me, RunCam Owl Plus is being used https://goo.gl/71i2R3

HD Camera
=======
My favourite HD recording camera, the RunCam 2 https://goo.gl/kh3gJu

Pan Servo
=======
I'm using a 180 degree pan servo here https://goo.gl/VZ7GnD

FPV Goggles
=======
I'm using FatShark Dominator V3's however there are far cheaper ones here https://goo.gl/I3ob0J

Strobe
=======
I bought these here https://goo.gl/NtdUkc and the lense caps https://goo.gl/7U1R4C. Not cheap but silly bright!

Laminate
=======
We bought 2 rolls of 75 micro laminate off eBay for £14. I also used silver on the wings bought from HobbyKing.

IMPORTANT:
=======
DO NOT use that chrome silver covering, it disappears into the sky too easily. While it looks amazing, in hindsight it was a really bad idea.

3D Printed Parts
=======

3D Printed Antenna Mount
------------
These can be downloaded here http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:757641 or bought here https://goo.gl/cbMAIf

3D Printed bumper
------------
This one is similar to the one I used https://goo.gl/sqfbst

Mini Talon 3D Printed Pan Mount
------------
I used this as a base https://goo.gl/FIvXiY but the top plate wasn't big enough so made the top plate for the cameras out of plywood.
