"She's a Biggy" - Chasing the Skyhunter

By RagTheNutsOff, 07 Oct 2018 into #RagTheNutsOff in FPV Shows Watch on YouTube »

Howdy, let's jump on-board for a morning cruise in the Mini talon & chase the Skyhunter. It's crispy out there so you'll need your mittens & a cuppa. Enjoy! Matt

The model used is the Mini Talon which you can buy here http://bit.ly/2rz5EwJ

You can find out the FULL specification of the Mini Talon I'm using in this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BdpTR_ivBcA

IMPORTANT
================
So that we're ALL on the same page. I feel it's important to stress that the XUAV Mini Talon model was bought out of my OWN money, for my own abuses and was NOT a "Freebie for Review".

In this video meet V2 of my Mini Talon, V1 as just as good!

Parts List
================
I have done my best to list everything that I am using in my Mini Talon. See my notes below this section for extra info.

XUAV Mini Talon: http://bit.ly/2rz5EwJ
X2216 1250Kv Motor: http://bit.ly/2zebJWG
At least a 40A ESC. I'm using this one: http://bit.ly/2KPaLVp
8x6 Propeller: http://bit.ly/2Nt95iT
5200mAh 4S Multistar packs: http://bit.ly/2qjqY9I
TowerPro MG90S Servos (4): http://bit.ly/2FfUJNx
Twisted servo extension leads: http://bit.ly/2KDfWbT
Replacement Control Horns: http://bit.ly/2tYyMj5
Taranis Tx http://bit.ly/2NfOFZJ
Runcam 2 HD Camera http://bit.ly/2KU8OqS
180 degree pan servo http://bit.ly/2Jw5Nbg

Following on from the video one thing you cannot compromise on is the motor, the SunnySky motor here http://bit.ly/2zebJWG really is worth the money. I use the same motor in other models because it's soooo good!

The control horns that are provided are crubbish, bin them and use the ones suggested above (see here http://bit.ly/2tYyMj5 ).

I haven't listed a FPV camera & vTx above thats because I am using the Runcam owl Plus which they don't do anymore :( So instead, consider a RunCam Swift 2 or similar here http://bit.ly/2L1EPy0 , they're known to be great cameras.

If running 5.8GHz video, the TX526 here http://bit.ly/2HBOKVm is fantastic, I own several of these and they work great. Of course combine them with a quality antenna like this one http://bit.ly/2Fmey5z

For the fligth controller I am using the EagleTree Vector, however you can of course use iNav with a Mini Talon too. I used some foam board to make a tray for the Vector to sit upon. That worked out really well!

Mini Talon Top Lid Mod
================
The lid to the Mini Talon is feeble, see this simple mod using carbon fibre strips here http://bit.ly/2JveIu0 to make it strong enough to be used.

Mini Talon 3D Printed Parts
================

While there are loads of 3D printable parts available for the Mini Talon which you can see on Marks site here http://www.itsqv.com/QVM/index.php?title=Parts_Catalog_-_Mini_Talon I elected to only use one item, which was the front skid/bumper.

Note that I have only used PLA filament for my parts and have had zero issues with warping etc....
