This is the thing - it looks good. But only if you're flying LoS. Is it 100 better to fly FPV than a normal Mini Talon? I'm not sure.

The comparable (PNP) Mini Talon is currently 100 on BG......

I'm certainly no Carol Vorderman, but I'm quite sure 145 - 100 is not 100 difference ;) :laugh:

I'm no aerodynamics expert but I'd be wiling to bet it makes barely any difference at the speeds this thing flies at.
Planes pretty much always fly better when they're less draggy.  But to start with a blank sheet of paper and come up with that is just daft.  All the best FPV planes when you look at them are fairly slippery with only necessary compromises.  I just can't see what this...thing is meant to bring to the table.

Oh is it PNP - my bad, I thought it was just the kit :D

Also sorry about the "edit" above - I hit "modify post" instead of "quote" by mistake

I guess "cool" sells ... thing is it does look different which gives them a bit of an edge. People don't really seem to be using them for long-range but they're pretty nice for cruising around.

I dunno *shrugs* I see where you're coming from but I'm wondering how much more inefficient it actually is as opposed to sticking a runcam on the top which we've all done for years without a problem. It seems to be at an angle which might help direct the air around, instead of just being head-on.

Someone buy one, 3d print a sharp nose for it, stick it on and compare cruise efficiency, its the only way to know :)
