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
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
If you're in the EU, check the Banggood EU warehouse as it's generally cheaper to buy from there than from China.
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!
I'm using a SunnySky X2216 1250Kv https://goo.gl/7EexbF which draws 6A for about 40mph!
8x6 APC - https://goo.gl/MCgRbe
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
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.
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
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
5200mAh 4S 10C Multistar Battery https://goo.gl/PEfZi1
I'm using a ImmersionRC vTx - but do check your county's legal requirements.
Again a no-brainer for me, RunCam Owl Plus is being used https://goo.gl/71i2R3
My favourite HD recording camera, the RunCam 2 https://goo.gl/kh3gJu
I'm using a 180 degree pan servo here https://goo.gl/VZ7GnD
I'm using FatShark Dominator V3's however there are far cheaper ones here https://goo.gl/I3ob0J
I bought these here https://goo.gl/NtdUkc and the lense caps https://goo.gl/7U1R4C. Not cheap but silly bright!
We bought 2 rolls of 75 micro laminate off eBay for £14. I also used silver on the wings bought from HobbyKing.
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.
