Very impressive! Can I ask what motor and prop you were using? My team is interested in operating a Talon at high elevations, and has actually been discussing what power system would be ideal. Also, did you have issues with the batteries operating in such low temperature environments?

Got to love the Talon

Nice flights!

Agreed that Talon is a nice platform, I´m also flying it for mapping and tests :-)

I´d also like to know more about your setup and the missions you are flying.

And in low altitude flight at ordinary times didn't do special setup and modify. High altitude take-off is very difficult, once off the ground, the difference is not too big. From the flight log, low rate of climb with faster speed is one of the biggest differences. Battery didn't do heat preservation processing, don't be cool, flight will spontaneous heat.

My English is not good. I'm sorry.

Do you have wing extensions on your talon?? 

Comment by ZHAOFENG on June 2, 2015 at 11:30pm

Did not increase the length of the wing.

Take-off weight 3.2 kg

Hi, well done fellas. The motor looks like a big multi-rotor motor. Could you give us a breakdown of the power chain.....motor, ESC and battery solution.

Thanks, very impressive. Did you program the spiral climb out before the grid flight?

Hi. Great Job!...can you tell us about your power setup: what kind of Motor-Batteries combination did you use. and what is the time of flight.
