The Talon FPV V-tail Drone is an all EPO moulded airframe. The kit comes un-assembled with EPO and laser cut plywood parts. This version 2 of the Talon has strengthened plywood wing saddle/carbon support parts, and additional plywood pieces for easier FPV equipment mounting. Less guess work on your part. Also, the front wheel plywood mount has been strengthened to survive less than perfect arrivals better.
With a 4S 14.8V 10,000mAh LiPoly battery, flight times are long, and wing loading still low thanks to the generous wing area of the Talon. A generous fuselage compartment with large top hatch and removable nose bubble allows you to access your FPV equipment and flight battery in any configuration you choose. It is an open canvas for your FPV needs.

2 x 9g Servos
2 x 17g Servos
3648 1100KV Brushless Motor
12 Inch or less diameter propeller
70A Brushless Speed Control
Smooth glides through the air, little friction, allows low consumption in flight, very tough.
I could fly 25km with 10A in 4S and land with battery 15,2v. Total weight 2.9 kg. Used engine 1000kV 3608 KD with Helix 10x7.Very... Very.. Good for Fpv.
My TALON flies 10A 4S Lipo Batery
His final weight is 2,95kg
Can fly more than 25km full and consume only 5A.
His average speed and 60 km / h.
Stol is 35km / h
Already surpassed the 164 km / h without problems.
Use Esc 60-80A YEP, 3608 Motor KD 1000kV, Propeller 10x7, OSD Arkbird, Servants Metal MX 17g, TX-RX 1.2, tracker antenna, UHF Immerssion 200-600mw. I never needed to use 600mw. I walked over 11km to 700 meters high with clean signal and 200mw UHF smoothly.
Consumes in straight flight level stabilized around the 14th or 244mah per minute.This plane flyies fantastic.
Is fast, agile (neutral stability) and very difficult to tip-stall. If it does, it is easy to recover.
Very easy to hand launch, very hard for rolling take-off.
Correct CG position is 100mm from leading edge (110mm is the aft limit as it becomes pitch neutral stable).
Control throws work well at 22mm for Vtail and 18mm for AIL, as measured at their inner edges
Plenty of room to have all equipment inside, including 5.8ghz antennas, for clean and efficient airflow.
V-TAIL (X-UAVs idea to break your b*lls)
If your plan to connect Vtail servos with a Y-Cable or your autopilot/stabilizer (FEIYU eg) are not V-tail compatible, or your Vtail mixer pulses are not for the task, you have to REVERSE the position of one of the V-tail servos. So you need to check proper control movements before gluing the second V-tail servo.
If you insist on using your unnecessarily expensive autopilot/stabilizer (FEIYU eg) you can create a rudder control on the vertical lower fin and use V-tail as elevator only (still you will have to flip one of the servos)
Set servo control horn for a lot of mechanical (if Y-Cable connected) differential throws to counter act the impressive adverse yaw that this plane has. (google it if you don't know how)
Put as much equipment weight (batteries, rx, autopilots etc) on the righFPV . . ...Good X-UAV Talon FPV V-tail Drone EPO
