For Sale: Talon Survey/Mapping UAV kit

We are offering our X-UAV Talon mapping drone for sale. Fully operational, never crashed, comes with everything except the camera (we were using a Sony QX1, but can use many other camera types). 


We are selling this due to the size of the kit. Most of our work is in remote areas and involves travel on small aircraft, so we are using smaller UAV's that are easier to transport. This is not a problem if you are travelling by road to get to your jobs.

This is a very nice UAV - very stable and a good option for surveying/mapping over relatively large areas, or where you need long range. Loads of power, so hand launch is easy and no need to be carting a launcher around with you. All components are readily available, so ongoing maintenance is not a problem.

We have built a custom case for this UAV - absolutely everything you need in the one box, with wheels. The case is also designed so that it is used as a cradle (it can be fully assembled without having to take the fuselage out of the case).

Case dimensions: 1200mm long x 430mm high x 300mm wide

Case weight (including full UAV kit): 17kg

UAV Specs:

Wingspan: 2m

Weight: 3.5kg (incl batteries, etc)

Airframe material: EPP foam, carbon fibre wing struts

Launch method: hand launch

Landing method: Parachute (or belly land if preferred). Fitted with 48" parachute (Fruity Chutes IFC-48-S) which is housed in the belly of the UAV.

Flight controller: Pixhawk

Motor: Turnigy D3584/4 1100KV

Prop: 12 x 6" folding prop (pusher)

Telemetry system: RF Design 915MHz Ultra long range

RC system: Spektrum DX7 with Dragonlink V2 long range UHF system

Batteries: 2 x 6600mAh 4S

Camera power: Currently fitted with a dummy NP-FW50 battery to suit Sony Qx1, Nex, a5100, etc. This powers the camera off the UAV batteries rather than having to have separate camera batteries. Very handy for large mapping missions.

Camera triggering: Seagull triggering cable (damaged - see note below)

Endurance: A bit over 1 hr.

We can also provide a spare set of wings and tail.

Note that the Seagull camera trigger cable got jammed in the lid of the case and needs repair or replacement. All other components fully operational.

Asking Price: AUD$3,000 (plus shipping cost)

Location: Perth, Western Australia.

I have plenty of photos - contact me if you would like more photos or other info.
