Top Customer Reviews
The app installed without any problem and the Wi-Fi was easy to connect following the instructions included in the app. paring the app controls to the Talon drone didn't always work for me, but the video display connected reliably every time with the Wi-Fi connected. I have not used the app controls to fly the quad using the app as they don’t seem to provide as positive control as the handheld controller. You can fly the Talon HD without the Wi-Fi / Phone connected and it flies just as easily. However to activate video recording you have to use the button on the Wi-Fi controller app. There’s a button on the handheld Controller for Video however the instructions say the button does not activate the video with the Wi-Fi version. So you’ll want to download the Wi-Fi controller app and connect the Wi-fi when flying, if you want to record video or take pictures.
Before flying you need to install a fully charged battery. The Talon HD comes with 3 - 650 mAh Batteries. The camera is mounted to the battery door and limits the travel of the door for opening fully. The instructions say to remove the camera from the door to allow easier access to the battery although with practice you can slide the battery and connect the plug without removing the camera. The clips that hold the camera are small and somewhat flimsy although adequate for holding the camera while flying. Most of the time when installing the battery the camera comes off and I have to gently snap it back into the slots on the door once the battery and door are in place. I may need to rework the camera mounting with ty-raps in the future but it’s holding up for now. There's not an on off switch for the power and the instructions say to unplug the battery to turn off the power which your usually going to do anyway after flying to recharge the battery. With my first few flights I had trouble with the battery connector holding in the socket and needed to make it stay by twisting the wires just so to hold when the closing the door hit the battery wires. Note: I used 3rd party batteries which had thinner wires and the connectors may have even been smaller and looser. Once I used the included batteries which have heavier leads I didn’t have the trouble with the connector staying in place. The Talon HD drone claims 20 minutes of combined flight time for the 3 included battery's around 6 minutes per battery when fully charged. I timed my flights while using the provided batteries and did get over 6 minutes from each battery even while using the Wi-Fi and recording video, so the 20 minute flying time is an accurate claim at least with fresh batteries. You’ll want to practice setting up the Wi-Fi and turning on the App so you can do this quickly as you have to reconnect the Wi-fi each time you change out the battery. You’ll want to do the setup quickly as not to loose time and power while configuring the Wi-Fi. Open your Wi-Fi menu and the Talon Wi-fi Controller App first before plugging in the battery, then switching from your Wi-Fi Menu to the App will take seconds to get started. I also opened my timer application to start a timer and check the battery flight time. The Talon HD will show as a Wi-Fi signal in your phones Wi-Fi list once the battery is installed which you select to connect the Wi-Fi.
If you have not flown a quad before you’re going to crash frequently, If you’re an experience pilot your still going to crash now and then. The altitude stability, auto take-off and landing enhance the flying but this drone still requires a lot of hands on to avoid crashes, trees, and power lines. It takes practice to get the orientation of the controls to manage the elevation, left/right, forward/back of the flying. I don’t look at the flight video that much and prefer to keep my eyes on the quad while flying. I like to kick up the power / speed level to 100% once in the air to be able to offset any drift or wind effects on the flight. I have not had good results using the headless directional mode. Using the rotation to change the direction and pushing the forward control for speed works best for me to maintain orientation. Towards the end of the battery you may loose some control or even control of one access. This has happened to me a few times now. After you’ve been flying a few minutes if you notice loss of altitude or reduced control you should bring the drone in close and keep a lower altitude to hopefully avoid a hard crash. I’ve had 3 really hard landings; fortunately the plastic body is durable and should survive even a hard crash. Pulling the controls down and inward on the handheld controller will cutoff the power, (the same as the Calibration setting) This is good to know, and it’s not mentioned in the instructions. If you’re at altitude it will cut power and the drone may drop like a brick unless you’re in an updraft. Knowing this may save you from getting stuck if you loose control and are heading towards a tree or roof.
Don't expect great quality video from this drone the 720p camera on the Talon HD supplies the Wi-Fi video. Video on the phone looks a little grainy and low quality. The recorded video on the memory chip is a bit better. However this is nothing close to professional quality video. It’s more for fun to record your flights. The camera lens is movable which may provide some stabilization and allows for some downward positioning too.
The altitude hold hovering work pretty well as long as the battery is not low. The auto take off landing are great also.
The Talon HD has some nice features. The construction and performance are about the same as other drones this size like the Syma x5c. The Wi-Fi video is a nice feature although the video quality even the recorded video is not high quality. It’s as good as other drones with this type of camera. I have to mention the video records in MP4 format so the file size is smaller and it’s compatible for direct upload to most video services and YouTube. The price on the Talon HD over $110 us is steep even with the Wi-Fi capability, but you may be able to find a much better deal, if you shop around.
The distributor of the product, PC Treasures LLC, refused to repair or replace the unit. It claimed that the product warrantee "only covers replacement when the drone or any of it's parts are physically broken or missing upon initial removal from the box". That means that the warranty expires the moment it leaves the ground.
I recommend that you buy a different product.
