Title: JoE Talon Vtd
Post by: bryan beasley on March 21, 2010, 06:29 AM
You see that black, red and grey Vtd over there on the right hand side of the screen in the JoE banner?

It's been a while, so thought I ought to go fly it. I've been flying straight lines (Hmmm..., OK straightish) and nailed on tricks (Hmmm... some more, sort of blue tacked on really) for a good while, and thought I'd get some freestylin' in.

It was grey and miserable and pretty colourless - hence the black and white - kind of disguises the winteriness. Winds were not too much for the STD, but I've not really done the VTD justice, so here's a few clips. Inputs were pretty much all over the place for the most part, what with not having flown the thing for ages and so transitions are a bit pants, put you'll get the idea.

Very good video. There were times watching you getting altitude that I thought you were flying an UL in low wind.  ;)

Nice filming and flying! I enjoyed seeing your inputs in the same frame as the kite. Hard to believe that the wind speed was 12-18. The Talon flew like it was 8 mph.

I really like the reversed spin out of the crazy copter, I'll have to try that. I have the Std. and the UL, got to save up for the vented to complete my set.

Thanks for that. There's loads to like in the Talons, but one stand out feature is the slip catches on the yo-yo stops (Roll-bar fittings) you still have to hit the inputs right, but wrapped moves are that bit more do-able.

LOL @ Mark, get out and fly more instead of spending all that time makin' stuff ;-)
(on TV as well ;-) )
