Turnigy Talon Quadcopter (V2.0) Carbon Fiber Frame 550mm
The Turnigy Talon V2 Quadcopter frame is a crafted from high quality genuine carbon fiber offering both great looks and performance. Our engineers set out to create a Quadcopter frame without compromise, several materials were tested and rejected until they decided that only genuine carbon fiber would meet the goals we had set out to achieve. Every component was weighed and measured shaving mere grams where possible to achieve a light weight yet extremely rigid frame. We didn't allow any compromises and neither should you.
Our team took the already popular Talon frame and studied the design, based on feed back from the multi-rotor community and our own ideas we redesigned the motor mounting plates allowing for top or bottom mounting of 28 and 35 size brushlessoutrunner motors (see photos for reference of different mounting options). The improved clamping system alone underwent 3 redesigns until our engineers were satisfied that the perfect strength and weight saving combination had been achieved. The center frame clamping system was almost doubled in size to ensure a strong brace on each boom. We stress tested the design until a 5kg load could be held on the center plate with minimal flex from each boom. Every aspect of this frame was thoroughly examined and thought through.
All this attention to detail has resulted in the elegant simplicity that is the Talon V2, A Quad frame that we are as proud to put our name behind as you will be to own.
We also offer a full line of quality multi-rotor electronics such as multi-rotor control board, ESC, motors and more, so there is no need to compromise on your electronics setup either!
The distance between the two closest centres of motors is 389mm. Therefore, the max prop size on this would be a 15" props. So yes you can use a 1345 prop (first two numbers for diameter: 13" and the last two numbers are for pitch: 4.5" I assume). However if the props are too close they reduce efficientcy and manuverability.
Packing / Shipping - I received my Turnigy Talon V2 frame and I had some parts missing. They forgot to pack the 4 motor mounts (smaller ones) and the 4 spacer rods that attach to the landing legs. Someone in the shipping warehouse needs to be more careful when packing these kits. I can't start my build without the motor mounts. Arghhh!!!
OK HK should come up with an 'extended plate/s' option to extend the usefulness of this quad, no need to redesign it, just need to tweak it a bit for a little more room to mount 'other' stuff. I can mount a basic FPV rig on it but it's been hard work keeping a neat look to the V2
I might say though, even if it might be obvious, that it´*s not specifically made to strap a gopro to it or so but it seems like there could be many ways to do so based on the slots, holes and such that is cut on the boards. And to get more slots and such you could also buy another bottom plate and get a little more fastening points if needed, i will do that for example.
There's not much room, so the easiest solution is to stripe them to the arms. A bigger center place would make room for the ESC's but that will create a bulkier quad. (And it would of course depend on the size of your ESC's as well)
I'm looking at it for the same purpose. I'm looking to extend the lower platform using some custom cut carbon fiber sheet. then I'll add the camera mount to the extended platform using rubber insulated bobbins to reduce the vibrations.
I've also ordered the KK2.0 control board which with the version 1.5 firmware, will allow the controller to stabilize the camera gimbals.
also I plan on mounting an FPV camera to my DSLR so I can compose my pictures and better frame video. . . or so I hope. :-D
I would never glue the screws, since you most certainly will need to change sth. later and it is really annoying, when you need to remove well glued screws.
Especially since it fits quite well and doesnt move wehere it shouldnt without glueing.
Use blue loctite on the screws. Especially the ones that hold the arm mount to the top plate.
After having an arm come off mid-flight when the screws vibrated loose, you can guess why. :)
The blue loctite will hold, but is still removable without heat using hand tools.
The mounts are a little small for 16mm. its a pretty tight fit for the 14mm and I had a little trouble lining up the screw holes on the mount to the center plate as it was until i cranked down on the screw that pinches the mount and holds the tubes in place. plus the motor mounts probably wouldnt fit either.
I bought this frame and Turnigy 2217 16turn 1050kv 23A Outrunner motors. The holes in the frame and motor down line up the way i want them to. Will it be ok to only connect 2 screws to the motors or must i connect all 4 screws?
three screws MINIMUM and if it takes four, you should use four. Two will not give you the stability you need, and if one screw works loose from the vibrations, your quad will likely go into the ground.
See if your motors will match up all 4 screws if you flip the mounting plate at the end of the arm upside down* the drawing that comes with it shows it backwards ** with the countersinks on top. With the countersinks down, our motors fit well, and the wiring ran directly into the boom.
Hi, thinking of building a quad and using a Hobbywing 20A Skywalker Quattro 20Ax4-UBEC (SQ20A4U) It's a 4 in 1 esc.
also going to use a KK2.0 will this fit into the frame and where does the batery go?
you need to study up that kind of info in the forums. there is not enough space and time to write the pages of info that you requested. perhaps you should consider getting a micro ready-to-fly quad as you seem to be a complete beginner. the micro quads are better able to withstand crashing. this is a high end frame for the advanced user and you would probably not have fun crashing and breaking this quad
this or a dji f450? i want my quad to be nimble and light while still being stong to take impacts, but i am using it for aerial filming and the dji is not only pretty strong but the lower frame is designed to mount a gopro straight onto it.
I noticed the bolt holes are 1mm on each size compared to the tricopter. I'm planning on using this motor with it http://hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/__16230__NTM_Pr op_Drive_Series_35_30_1100kv_380w.html. Will it fit?
I am looking for some advice, sorry for the long question!
I previously bought a RTF version of the Q450 (integraed PCB) from ebay seller. 30a ESC's, 950Kv Motors and a "FF board 1.3" controller. (Most parts were unknown brand parts - Please don't shoot me!)
I have damaged one of the arms on this quad and can't get a replacement from HK since they have been on backorder for the last few weeks. I have already decided to switch to the HK KK 2.0 flight controller and was thinking of switching to this frame. Since my existing model was ready-made and had an integrated PCB I'm not 100% sure what extra parts I need to buy (or if my existing motors/ESC's will work well with this frame).
Can anyone offer advice on other parts to order (even if they seem obvious!), as I live in Ireland and most items are hard to get domestically and need to be shipped which is either painfully slow or painfully expensive?
So far my basket contains:
Turnigy Talon Quadcopter (V2.0) Carbon Fiber Frame 550mm
Hobbyking KK2.0 Multi-rotor LCD Flight Control Board
Hobby King Quadcopter Power Distribution Board
(salvaging ESC's, Motors, Rx, spare props from existing quad)
What other accessories will I need (cables, connectors, nuts/bolts)?
Thanks in advance for your help!
I'm not sure about the screws for the motors in this kit but don't forget to order 'NTM Prop Drive 28 Series Accessory Pack' for these motors. NTM motors are shipped as what you see in the picture - without motor mount, screws and propeller mount. I'm pretty sure you can use the screws you get in the accessory pack to mount the motors to this frame.
The lower frame plate isn't connected to the aluminum block. The alum block is attached only to the verticle spacers which are attached to both the top and bottom frame. The bottom of the alum block is just floating above the bottom frame.
Hi guys can anyone tell what is the dimensons of the centre plates of talon v2 quad? How to increase number of plates to accomodate a naza with gps? How to attach boom rods underneath to attach a taller landing gear with camera tilt pan mount?
Just to follow up, you need to be a bit creative fitting landing gear to this model but it can be done strong and need - look in files "Geoff's Talon close up" l used a hobbywing quattro 20amp all in one esc but it runs a bit hot so lm thinking bigger props and only 3s batt reckon it might be ok with 11 or 12" props as lm trying out the Turnigy NTM 800kv motors on 2 different quads - so far really nice though a little thirsty.
I am a beginer I want use talon v2 for arial videography with a gopro hero3 on a cf gimbal mount. I could see that skids at the end of each arm does not provide enough space to hang a 3 axis gimbal is there any way to attach cf rods under the centre plale to hang a gimbal? Can the motor mounts be modified or changed? Is there any way to mount more plates to put a naza m with gps? And finally what is ****link which I cant access?
Please help me withyour expertise.
Hi Joydeep yeah easy mate. Just built one last night and it beautiful, very light and agile even with landing gear and video tx gear, gopro and 3600mah 3s. Had to do a few mods to fit the landing gear but you could easily rig something to hold your gimble, easy to put extra plates on too, will try and post some pics.
The platform itself is an upgrade over the previous version, but it does fail in at least two areas.
The motor mounts have static sized which limit the variety of motors which can be used. The frame could have easily saved a small amount of weight and increased the motor options by routing out channels for varying screw sizes instead of individual holes.
The screw positions on the main body should have been made with uniformspacing. Spacing between the center of the screws which hold the arm mounts are around 29mm, the screw positions between the arms are around 32mm. It would have been a bonus to have the two large pieces be able to rotate 45degrees so things like batteries could be mounted symmetrically regardless of the chosen flight configuration(x/ ).
And just a small gripe about the mount on the main body, it is annoying that I cannot take the arm out of the mount without having to disassemble a lot of the craft. It makes assembly and field repair all that more annoying.
this is what i used
there is a picture in files of a neat tray i made to carry the battery 45 deg from factory position.
it works well and the top of it works great for FPV realestate.

It is totally different product from version one. The new motor mounts designed to fit motors without other mounting plates. The possibility of wires into the carbon tube provides sleek look of each ends. The longer tube clamp holds the carbon tube much better than previous model. In addition, new set screw thread on the clamps also gives accurate positioning of each motors.
The needs of taller landing gear and accessory attachment will be anticipating for this product. And also availability of spare parts becomes essential.

This is a very nice frame, real carbon fibre cross weave arms (14mm diameter, 1mm thick) with 2mm thick carbon plates for the main body. The motor mounts and arm clamps are solid but light weight aluminium. I could only use two of the motor mount holes for my motors (Turnigy L2215J-900) but that’s OK with me. An 28 series NTM motor fits fine. This kit also comes with some nylon standoff bolts for your controller board. The board holes are pre drilled to suit X or configuration. I was going to build my own quad, but when I saw this I could not resist… Nice one Hobby King!

Very well made components, unfortunately I didn't receive 4 additional spacers out of a total of 8 and I had to cannibalize my Talon 1 kit to make up the difference. That's why I gave a 4 star rating. One of my Turnigy 18a Plush fizzed out when I plugged in the battery and I used a Hobbyiwing 25a ESC with the remaining 3. After some tuning of the HK KKboard, I flew it successfully with a Turnigy 9x.
Overall an excellent product but the packaging department needs to be more careful in ensuring all the parts are packaged properly. Also the Turnigy ESC QC department needs to test their products thoroughly before shipping.
Well I started building mine and I must say the build quality is great. Nice thick carbon frame and landing skids. Arms are thick and very strong. Aluminum parts are very nice as well, This is more like a work of art than a Quad, I'm almost affraid to fly it. My setup consists of NTM 2836 750Kv motors, Turnigy 25a Hextfet ESC's, Turnigy 3000mah 4s battery. My main concern was how to fly X mode due to the battery slots are configured for plus mode but that's not a problem, just put your battery in for X flying and wrap a strap around the whole frame bottom plate. The battery I have may be a little to big and heavy as I haven't done a flight with it yet and the slots seem more for 2200mah size batteries. Just keep in mind the battery you chose must provide enough power for your setup, In my case a constant 80a with a 100a max. Hopefuly It can lift some beer. I was going to build a super lifter with 6 turnigy 160's but I figured the cost to be around $2500-$3000 for a hex that could lift 40-50lbs, I just didn't know what I would do with all the batteries when I was done so I didn't do it!.
