You know what amazed me about the maiden, besides the incredible sound of the passes, did you see how that thing lifted off after such a short takeoff roll? That thing looked like a 4lb Fly Fly foamie with 3kw pushing it around. 40lbs! are you kidding me?

I know, on all those speed run tests I did I was closer to lift off than I realized. One little tug on the elevator and I would have been airborn. I did screw up on that maiden rotation a little as I would have bet I was going to have to give quite a bit of up to rotate it..I was wrong she poped right up. I was a little surprised and thought hmmm well that's interesting, backed off on the elevator stick and let her fly out streight ahead

Prabbaly closer to 41 pounds. I added a third wing spar after the weigh in..

Well, Andy, I guess we`ll give ya a pass on that non-scale rotation on your maiden flight. Just don`t let it happen again.

Congrats! Absolutely amazing flight, the speed, the sound, everything looked soooo scale. One of the most impressive things I've seen in RC in quite a while.

I can hear the little voice in Andy`s head as the Talon jumps into the sky..." Well, there goes the abort option"

What does the "scale speed" look like to you guys. 400mph - 450mph?, a little higher?

Also, I tried to get a RC Speedo doppler on the two passes, with no luck. Those darn Stumax are impossible to doppler, too darn efficient.

No other words to say, other than AWESOME!!!!!!! The presence in the air and the sound are friggin amazing. If its underpowered, it'll do amazing in a scale contest, since you'll be completely scale. Two thumbs up........or one up,one down if you're a newfie. Hahahahaha.

Congratulations on a fabulous build and an awesome maiden.!!

The sound was unbelievable. If I didn't know I would swear it was a turbine.

I am half thinking of building one myself and kitting it too.
