If your looking for a high end, no compromise quadcopter frame with looks that could kill, the Talon is for you!
The Turnigy Talon quadcopter frame is a high quality carbon fiber frame that offers both great looks and performance. Built from light weight yet extremely rigid carbon fiber and aluminum alloy, the Talon offers a great combination of weight savings and strength.
The Talon features a beautifully finished carbon fiber main frame and arms, all connected together with aluminum alloy parts. This frame really gives your quad a high-tech and quality look.
We also offer a full line of quad electronics such as quadcopter control board, ESC, motors and more, so it has never been easier or more affordable to get a quad in the air!
All necessary hardware is included.
Specs: Weight: 240g Width: 498mm Motor Bolt Holes: 22~32mm
am looking at building this frame with the following parts:
NTM Prop Drive Series 28-26A 1200kv / 250w (short shaft version)
MultiWii MicroWii ATmega32U4 Flight Controller USB/BARO/ACC/MAG
Turnigy Multistar 45 Amp Multi-rotor Brushless ESC 2-6S
What sized props would suit this setup? I have a bit of experience with quads, but this is the first time building my own
People are suggesting to use D2830-11 motors, my question is this model states the motor bolt holes are 22-32mm yet that particular engine has screw holes at 16 and 19mm. Can the engine still be mounted? thanks for any help
The motors are screwed to mounting plates (supplied with the motors) that then attach to the quad frame.
I have this frame and the D2830-11 motors and they mount up fine.
Just be sure to use some thread-locker on the mounting bolts!
This frame is ****. I've had to replace part after part just to get it in the air. One rather hard impact and the whole thing falls apart. The bottom plate is extremely unstable. Overall I'm rather irritated with the product.
Grab a couple packs of item no: HCB-10, you'll get both standard and counter rotating blades and end up with one of each as spares.
Team them up with the Turnigy D2830-11 1000kv motors for a proven combination.

I'm a newbie to this EXTREME sport - I'm in the process of building my first Quad ( which I think will be just as much as flying it ) nevertheless I'm completely NEW. Reason why am into this NOW is that I saw a mate of mine's Quad last night and all I've been doing is watching YOUTUBE. SO no I'm keen to get my teeth into it. I've chosen this frame for this project. I've review a few webpages on what parts are required... BUT I'm completely stumped - are there any schematics in building these quads. can someone please direct me?
For a beginner kit you should look at http://store.diydrones.com/category_s/28.htm
Then buy one of the "Frame Motors Full Flight Electronics Kit" and not ready to fly kit's, because by using a DIY kit is extreemly good for learning, and when you have gotten it off the ground you can then think about changing components. and a arducopter is probably the cheapest way to start, as a crash won't be to expensive.
If you buy a arducopter you will stil need some things. a battery, 6 channel RC and a charger. some good/cheap beginner choices are.

The long CF tube is passed all the way through, corner to corner, through both mounts. then the two shorter tubes are pushed into the mounts until they butt into the tube through the center. You do not need to cut any of the CF tubes to assemble this frame!
Christian I had the same frame to stop most of the vibration,Put in between al joints (IE bolted parts) and were the motor bolts on,a bit of 2mm thick cut to size and shape foam that will help a lot.
It was amazing after I done this to mine.

I want to make a quadcopter. I'm a newbie to this stuff so can anyone suggest me some parts like frame, motor, esc, battery, control board etc. I want a cheap fpv also. I want the quadcopter powerful enough to lift a fpv. And I want that all cheap. I want to make it cheap with fpv. Please help me. And I want to order all parts from hobby king.
D2830-11 motors. Some 8x4-9x4 props.
30 amp speed controls. Go the turnigy plush route.
Get the program card for the esc too...
A kk2 board is a good starter and will work well with close range FPV stuff. Get a USBasp programmer with the board too. The newer 1.4/1.5 firmware makes the autolevel work.
Some turnigy 3 cell 3000mah packs. Around 35c discharge.
Also put the little nylon screws and nuts on your order to mount the board. The hardware to mount the motors unless you LHS has them...
Thats how mine is set up. Ive added a ton of wieght to mine and I can get about 8 minute flights. Maybe longer.
hope this helps
Ok got the frame in and started to put it together. It looked simple enough until I looked at the lengths and wondered how are you sure you have the arms at the right lengths. I know it is something simple but I dont see it. Had a rough day at work...LOL
Mine came with 2 proper length arms and one twice as long arm. Had to cut the long one in half. I just made them all even with a tape measure. They can be off by a small amount and its no huge deal. I just made sure the motor mounts were all pretty exact.
You don't need to cut anything. The long arm goes straight through between the center plates and the shorter ones butt up to either side of the longer one.
I'll be adding some extra mounts to the shorter arms on my frame at the center plates for extra rigidity.

Totally new to this quad stuff so doing lots of reading. Just googled FPV to lern what that stood for, amazing stuff. Since I have never flown one, would time on a simulator help to avionics some trouble with the real thing??? Thanks in advance
I am new to quads but not to RC aircraft. I kind of went in full bore and bought a mini quad and enough parts to build my own mid sized quad. Save some money and grab one of www.link fly great and despite the buggy appearance they actually fly really really good. Its something to sink your teeth into until you figure out if its for you and to train you up if it is. As for a sim, I would say it wouldnt hurt. If no quadcopters are available on your sim, load up one of those little eflite type helis.(dual rotors without any tail motor) They fly very similar and the controls are identical. Its not a perfect replacement sim but it would get you used to keeping a rotor wing in the air and get your thumbs oriented for quads.
Lots of folks like this frame. Im new to quads but I dont think I care for it. Looks too easy for the arms to tweak at the base of the hub. And the motor mounts only take two screws from the motor. I would hate for a good beginners bounce to make one of the motors tweak in or out.
I did buy one and rather than your concerns I found the biggest drawback was that only one of the arms are full length CF tube, i.e. from motor to motor. The other arms are half length and flex terribly to the point of uncontrollable oscillations. Fibreglassing the centre section together did improve it greatly but you shouldn't have to do this.
Adding some extra aluminium arm mounts to the shorter arms and installing a full sized center plate to the bottom will help reduce vibration and flexing.
If you don't want to buy the extra parts, make sure the narrow bottom plate is lined up alongways with the shorter arms to support them as best as possible.
I agree with the suggestion of replacing the lower plate with a second top plate and drilling two sets of holes for a second set of arm mounts for the short arms. This means that you will need another set of the brass standoffs. The spare hardware for the V1 was not in stock when I ordered, so I used the standoffs from the V2 which work just as well, but are a bit longer, so you can't mix the V1 and V2 standoffs.
The problem now is with the motor mounts bending and turning at the end of the CF arms. I haven't figured out how to deal with that yet, so any suggestions from others would be appreciated.
hey hie m making a quadcopter with my group...
we are completely newbies to electronics n stuff. we hav AUW of 1.5kg max.we have chosen hextronic DT750kv motors
http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbycity/store/uh_v iewItem.asp?idProduct=6247&Product_Name=hexTronik_DT 750_Brushless_Outrunner_750kv
n according to our research we feel 30amps esc will be okay
will we get a flight time of around 10min using 2200mAh 3s 35c batry ??
the suggested prop is 11*3.8/4.7 but we are feeling the quad will be too big then because the frame size we calculated watching the below video is around 715mm
can we use 10*4.5 props n do easily with a 450mm frame like the one below
we wannted to confirm the combination that we have selected...please help us!!!!!!!!
it will work with DT750, but i prefer the D2830 / 1100 Kv with 10x4,7 cos there are more compact, resistants and there are easy to install on the Frame.
With D2830, 30A Turnigy Plush, and a 2200 3S lipo, you can install a Camera like GoPro and having a flight time near 7 or 8 mn.
This site is a great blog about building exacly what you're talking about, on a tight budget, and with only parts found on this website.
I definitely recommend it..
I built my Quadcopter with all parts from Hobbyking. Cost about $300 including 2 batteries. HK have some great kits now, just add controller, esc , receiver and battery. go with these kits and the recommended gear listed. You can't go wrong. It is a great time to get into Quads as the prices are falling all the time. Have fun!!
Gentlemen, may I introduce NewToHobbyKing Better known as Kellyann a person who scammed over $2,000.00 from this forum over an 18 Month period. She or actually he (it's a male) returned just 6 months ago and to fool everybody into believing she knows RC she gave herself 2700 points. She is a scammer and will stop at nothing to get credits. Please pass the word because we've spotted just tonight instances of false information she's been giving to members. She knows very little about RC just follow her ID and you'll see most of her answers are just comments. I tell you this simply because other long serving members who have spent years helping people will start getting a bad name because of her. Of course the whole thing is a big joke to him.her Please be careful.
I've been researching about building my first quadrotor and I'm still unsure what motors to go with. I want something that will be stable, but fun to fly. This is my first quadrotor. Also, I find it fun trying to figure all this out, but it is also hard and I enjoy the challenge.
i'd like to buy Talon1 because of low cost. But That one doesn't have proper motor mounting part. in contrast Talon1, Talon2 has 4 hole for mounting each motor. Was motor mounting parts made Talor2's cost 2 times higher than Talon1?
Is there any idea that makes me able to use 'Talon1 frame' but get Talon2's motor mounting part??? please let me know
I'm not sure why you think that this quad doesn't have a proper motor mount,just might not seem it but you could always change it if you like. Assuming that the booms are the same size in diameter which i think they are,i can't see why the Talon V2 motor mounts wouldn't work with this frame,just mount as you normally would then your good to go. PRODUCT ID: 9171000025 If you do go for it let us know how you get on as other people might like to know too,plus there is a huge thread on rcgroups about this quad frame and they will be only to happy to help you out,good luck.
As I said above if you look at 2nd last photo you can see yes only 2 mount holes all you need to do is put on the X support that comes with motor bolt it to motor then bolt all that to the 2 holes on the frame :) Cheers..
I have just received this frame and assembled it, here are my first impressions:
- A very well made design, no obvious flaws in manufacturing. (I couldn't find any yet!)
- It goes together easily. Use the pictures on Hobbyking to work it out, I started with the 'feet' parts then the centre, then finally I joined it all together with the tubing.
- It looks like a work of art when assembled, it seems a shame to burden this with wires and motors!
- I bought the recommended 2730 motor and Plush 12A ESC. The inter-hole distance on the motor mount seems slightly small for the holes on the frame but I don't think its impossible. I haven't yet mounted the motors because the motor shaft protrudes slightly from the bottom so I will need to buy some spacers/washers.
- The ESC looks very well made.
Overall, I think it looks like a great frame and I can't wait to get it hovering!

This frame is great ! I already had one from another supplier and have the HK one as well. I must say, good job HK on the shipping packing !! I got one long tube and two short ones. The 28-size motors fit perfectly on the mounts. I also have different motormounts for the HK hacker style motors (diff shaft config) and for the DT750's. very stiff frame and high quality materials. Cannot go wrong for this price. Buy two for spare parts !!

I ordered it with the recommended motors but installed the cf 2822 because they fit perfect. Hoovers at about half throttle with 7x6 props, plenty of power.
The carbon booms can still rotate, although tightened very hard.
well put tohgether kit one pole is solid the other is split making them bow in the centre could use a bottom plate tha same size as the top plate to fix diameter of the tubes is 12mm verygood hardware hex caps and nylocks its a weighs a bit mot than I expected but you can not beat the price
