Finally a proper frame on Hobbyking. If only they would go crazy like Goodluckbuy and add a ton of flight controllers and ARF kits too.

But hmmm, actually arms that are 90 to word "TALON" are hold only with one (top) CF plate, and one mount. Having in mind, that 1.5-2mm CF isn't sooooo strong (and that "TALON" weakens middle part even more), i guess 2 arms will flex/vibrate a lot.
I would wait for independent reviews first ;-)

Agreed - nice price, but slightly missed the target...

The user comments: the arm that are not connected through the small bottom plate are too flexible .. ' confirm your point

The Goodluckbuy one in the video a couple of posts above, doesn't look anything like it. Got a link?

The arm that is parallel to the word Talon is one long arm that goes all the way though. The arms that are 90 to word "TALON" only go half way, that's why they have the small support plate to hold them firmly.

<edit> actually the design is maybe slightly different as one pole is full length so making it much stiffer

Rather than doing another edit to my previous post....

Having looked a bit closer, the HK version is CF, wheras the GLB one I linked to is GRP.

GLB does have a CF version but it's double the price ...

true they did have the cf version, but still going to be cheaper then HK shipping, put the hk in shopping cart see what shipping costs. but yes your fright its the CF version.

so you do save a few bucks from HK with cheaper shipping etc.
