Does anybody have a setup file for the APM and the X-UAV Talon they can share?
Bump. This Talon is an incredible platform with tons of access to internals and modular swappable camera pods for the front. Would love to get this into use for photogrammetry but the PID config is relatively new to me. Any help on this?
this run well for me.
I have four of the Talon-Mini's up and running using APM2.4.1 internals... all fly GREAT! and have become showcase UAVs for my research. I do substantial internal reinforcement and modification to carry the batteries and the camera systems that I use in my research (much of it near-remote sensing, IR mappings, etc). All fly fabulous, but the V-tail continues to bring some questions to mind about the Ardupilot navigation...
I would be happy to share my PID/Params files with anyone, but the tuning was pretty straight forward... I have all of mine set up with V-tail mixing performed only by the APM, no external mixers, no special mixing by the Spektrum DX7s Tx. I have over 100 45-minute flights on one aircraft, and at least a dozen each on the others.
My only real trouble is with stuff that should not cause trouble - like executing the LOITER.... I get questionable results when I should be getting simple clean 60 m radius right hand turns like my 14 other APM-powered UAVs...
These are my only V-tails... and I am having some suspicions about how the V-tails implement standard LOITER turns.... does anyone else have APM-mixed V-tails up and working with the LOITER and RTL behaviors?

Hello David did you solve the problem
I would love to get params for the Mini Talon. Please post a screenshot of your basic tuning screen if possible. Setup of servo linkages would also be helpful.
my brother and i have no less than 7 or 8 mini-talons operating... and are in the middle of setting up 3 more this week. earlier ones all have APM2.4 systems.... new ones will be APM2.6 with latest 3DR radios and latest GPS. i will make a point of documenting the final set up/params... and when confirmed with flight tests will do some screen captures and share this. hope that will help
