Here is a video of the Talon Profile that I got from Chris. Thanks Chris!!!
This plane has a DL 50 and the Futaba FASST 2.4 in the 14MZ. The engine is still not broken in yet.

I've been flying one of these now for the past month.. I can not begin to tell you the amount of fun I've been having.. Not only does it look great but it flys and tracks perfectly... Flying with a Moki 2.10, digital set up -- had to add 5oz to the nose for balance.. All up flying weight 15lbs 5oz

I put about 5 more flights on my FP-1 this past weekend. WOW. This bird keeps getting better. There are 3 or 4 guys in the club that all want one now. Knife edge loops, flat spins inverted or up right. Snaps hovers you name it. This thing will do it with ease. Big bonus i flew in a bit of wind towards the end of the day.. Not even an issue. The huge rudder makes cross wind landings an enjoyable event. I also must say the colors against a blue sky stand out very, very well... Landings are at a snails pace.... I'm having fun again

Hi,

I just finished a Talon with a DL50, about ready for maiden. My CG is about 1/2 inch behind spar. I like a little tail heavy, but not where its almost uncontrollable. Do you think I'll be in trouble with the cg little behind the spar. The instructions says the cg range is pretty broad, watch it more than 1" behind the spar. Just curious if there has been any experimenting with the CG or what were your experience with the CG location with this airframe. Thanks for any info.

Try 30% of the wing cord just for starters and go from there. As for the control surfaces, this is a slow flying plane......I'd set up at least dual rates and maybe even triple rates. Have at least 45* for your high rate and prob. 20* for your low. It's not rocket science......you'll just have to fly and tune to suit your style!

thanks for the info. I had no idea where to start for the CG. I checked the CG on balance machine as is and it is just behind the wing tube by about 1/2 " . I bought this plane after a minor incident which broke the fuselage in half where the wide part necks down to the rest of the fuselage. after repairs, I don't know what I did to the CG. I will take your advice and try it. I think I will like this bird once I get it trimmed. thanks again

Flying too low,

Your going to LOVE your Talon. Had mine out this weekend. I have the throws and CG info will post later today. Chris recommended setup with triple rates. My CG is at the recommended location and is elevator neutral inverted. The Talon will fly all day inverted and in knife edge. I did have to setup a mix rudder to elevator keep her in line.
