mRo Nano Talon 866mm w/ arduplane


I've flown foam planes for a while and I'm interested in getting into 100% autonomous fixed wing aircraft. Basically, I want to build / buy something that can be flown virtually 100% via laptop / flight plan. Obviously, I would still be line of sight and have a transmitter back-up ready to go. But I was hoping you guys could help me figure out a good starting place. I don't have the time I used to for long builds... so I'm looking at buy a system out of the box, as close as RTF as possible.

I was looking at this:

https://store.mrobotics.io/product-p...lon0318-mr.htm

It's a Nano Talon 860mm from mrobotics running ArduPilot with specs / included hardware below. Any opinions on air frame, company, software, etc? I If you do not think this is a good idea, what would you recommend instead? ** Also, I will be replacing my whole kit, buying new radio, batteries, etc. as my existing stuff is low end and 5 years old. Was thinking about the team balcksheep Tango 2 and some fatsharks. Any opinions and advice much appreciated. Thanks.

re:


I know there is a Nano Talon 860mm owners thread and I'm happy to post over there. But I would assume everyone over there is a fan. I was looking for some independent opinions on whether this platform and set-up is a good choice for fully autonomous UAV.

Any takers?
