The Rekon range of the manufacturer HGLRC expands with a model more imposing than the others. The Rekon 6 is based on a Dead Cat shaped carbon structure with a diagonal of 24.2 cm from engine to engine, for dimensions of 23.5 x 17.8 cm. HGLRC explains that they have taken care to reduce the weight of the parts to increase the autonomy, while ensuring the solidity of the structure. The motors are brushless 2105.5 at 1500KV for two-bladed propellers of 6 inches Gemfan 6026.
At the heart of the device is a Zeus F722 Mini FC flight controller and a 28A 4-in-1 ESC. To facilitate mid or long range flights, HGLRC added a GPS M80 and a Soter buzzer. And a TPU mount for a GoPro Naked camera. The Rekon 6 is available in analog and digital versions.
It is based on a Ratel 2 1200TVL camera from Caddx combined with a 5.8 GHz Zeus 800 mW transmitter (which can also make do with 25 mW), with a long antenna plugged into an MMCX connector. It weighs 242.6 grams without radio receiver. HGLRC offers versions pre-equipped with an XM+ or R9MM receiver from FrSky, or Crossfire Nano RX from TBS. Note that the support for an Immortal-T antenna from TBS is of the rotating type to go vertical, according to the method imagined by Alexandre Arvinte.
The digital version is based on a Nebula Nano camera from Caddx and a Vista box compatible with the DJI Digital FPV System. It weighs 247.4 grams without a radio receiver – and there is no need for one with a DJI radio control. But HGLRC also offers versions pre-equipped with an XM+ or R9MM receiver from FrSky, or Crossfire Nano RX from TBS.
The manufacturer recommends 4S batteries of 1000 to 1500 mAh in Lipo with a XT60 connector, or in Li-Ion for a range which can reach 25 minutes. HGLRC assures that it is possible to use Lipo 6S, but it is not necessarily the best equipment to optimize the flight time.
