Hi, today I decided to share all my upgrades I designed and built for my Talon.
Since attachable picture number is limited here, detailed photos and more renderings can be fount on the project GrabCAD page, together with the neccessary .STL files and .DXF files for parts. These upgrades doesn’t need difficult modifications on the Talon fuselage, all of them fits to the foam parts.

Please don’t forget, if you like my work, you can donate me with some bucks!!! ***THANKS IN ADVANCE***

1) GimBALL adaptation for talon.

  • you will need 2 mm GF (aka. glass fiber sheet like G10) plates,
  • some 3D printed parts
  • 4 pieces of 10 mm long M3 rubber shock absorbers (the length is important to be 10 mm, if you have smaller blocks, use some spacers),
  • on pitch: HK-2206-140KV,
  • on roll: RCTimer 2212,
  • you have to buy a big sized motor mount cross or make one from aluminium or GF plate

2) Langing gear

  • This is a reinforcement for the fuselage to stable, rigid landing gear solution. You will need 2 mm GF sheets,
  • 5 pcs of MPJet Mounting Nuts (MPJ1005 code)

3) Camera mount

  • This is a roll-stabilized camera mount I designed for my Canon IXUS 100 camera. You will need 1,5 mm and 2 mm GF sheets,
  • a 3D printed camera lock
  • 5-6 mm thick silicon foam for shock absorbing
  • 2 pcs of d5xD11xw5 flanged bearing
  • a Turnigy TGY-306 (or same sized) servo
  • some screws, linkage rod, linkage ball

4) Misc. parts

  • I designed a small 3D printed pitot tube holder for the original 3DR pitot tube. The two parts needs to be glued together.
  • Also I replaced the wooden tail skid to a 2 mm GF part, for longer life.

I hope you enjoy them, I wish you happy and successful building!

*** CAUTION – 1*** Please note that I spent on many hours on designing and building them, regarding my current needs. I won’t modify any of them for further requests (ie. other type of camera) unless you pay my efforts, since I’m doing this in my limited spare time. Thanks for understanding…!

*** CAUTION – 2*** Please note that I designed all 3D printed parts to be printable on a Stratasys FDM printer, which uses support material system too. I didn’t tested the printability on a cheaper DIY printer family without support material, maybe parts can be printed on them too, maybe not… ***

Best regards
