I got my first shipment in for the Talon's extension wings and it looks promising. The only thing I am afraid of is that the main wing is a bit loose now  but I will make a plan before I fly.

Just watch it when hand flying it might be a little more short coupled and pitch sensitive now. Only a little bit. Now get mine to the couriers!

Hahaha, I will have yours to the couriers on Monday so you can start flying :).

Thanks, it looks a little nicer with the long wings, very cool. Pixhawk standing by for action.

What will you say the stall speed of the Talon is now? And what do you think it will be with the wing extensions?

Comment by UAS_Pilot on April 4, 2014 at 5:12am

I would be afraid the tail surfaces will stall first at lower speeds now. I had experience with that on a large UAS in Afghanistan.

Ohh that's interesting I look forward to exploring it. I did write the stall down somewhere but have lost it. Will let know next week when I fly it again ;-)

@Christiaan, what glue did you use to glue the CF spars on the EPO foam of the fuselage ?

Comment by Christiaan van Vollenstee on April 6, 2014 at 12:41am

You can use guerrilla epoxy glue.

@Gary, we flown again yesterday and with the extension wings this plane is as dorsal as a little kitty. I am going to epoxy the wings together. We did a fly by wire B and this plane was impossible to crash, as well as the stalling speed in 0 wind was around 33km/h. This is an absolutely great plane. I will be sending your planes today.

O yes we added a camera and this was the result
