Hey guys!

Have a look at this!

http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/__22397__Turnigy_Talon_Carbon_Fiber_Quadcopter_Frame.html

I thought this would be a nice place for a discussion about it :)

Well, In comparison the frame is small but what would you say to that last comment? CF blocks RF and therefore you don´t have the best connnectivity on this quad?!

I like the way it is designed aaaaand that the arms are hollow so your copter stays nice and clean with all wiring inside the CF tubes!

That's pretty small... ~19" diameter.

Wouldn't carbon fiber be risky for a multi-copter since if an antenna touches it it'll interfere with RF signal?

I think CF only blocks RF signals when it completely covers the transmitter / receiving device.
But I'm not sure what happens when you lay your antenna parralel to the tube for example.
I have no trouble with CF on this frame .. look how nice the motor cables come out in the middle :
Love this frame ! All spares available.

John, this frame is more a sport / acrobat frame.
This one is available for this frame, but rather expensive.
I'm looking for something smaller, more solid looking to carry a GoPro.

CF will not block the signal on these typs of setups. if it was in a case or enclosed most def, and that frame looked decent in person when i saw it, make sure you get CF version as the graphite version is allot heavier, you want to stay under 250g for a 450 size quad frame
