It's been already a while ago since we started selling one of our newest drones based on the Talon UAV airframe: the Aeromapper Talon.
In this occasion we wanted to use a large foam aircraft, something that was compact and yet large to offer 60 minutes endurance carrying a Sony Nex 5 with wide angle lens (as standard sensor, but more sensors are available). We chose the Talon, since structuraly and aerodynamically is a better compromise than other designs.
This UAV is very easy to launch, cruises at a low speed (40-45 km/h), has a small turning radius and has a parachute landing system. This makes it ideal for medium to small survey areas with very tight launch and landing spaces.
The V tail is quickly removable for easy transport.
Includes long range control and data link system (20+ kms).
And as usual, comes ready to fly and each unit we manufacture is completely flight tested. Includes a fully detailed User Manual with step by step instructions to get the user airborne in no time and with no training, although training is also available. Of course, it has APM and soon we’ll be transitioning to Pixhawk when we verify the maturity of this autopilot for fixed wing.
The Aeromapper Talon can already accommodate many different payloads with automatic triggering, including many variations of the Sony Nex 5 (converted camera bodies).
