Product Description

FPV Reconn Australian made drone quadcopterFAST Shipping overnight in AU 

This is the 3rd gen v3 Reconn (reconnaissance drone) that all the Pro-Pilots rave about for FPV stealth Aerial PHOTOGRAPHY - Reconn worlds FIRST ever purpose-built FPV Travel  480mm Ø Quad and pre-dates TBS -  With a "Look" that is unique from all those generic white plastic drones - Yes we have had this airframe in the hands of our Pro-Pilots  under going real-world event filming - its been improved for v3 and features smooth handling, brushless gimbal ready and typical 19 min flight times.



 

(above) FilmMaker GLambert7777 travelled to the Argentia-Brazil border Iguazu Falls - with his Scarab Reconn in his backpack and while all the other photographers stood on the ground - GLambert7777 recruited a few Spotters - trained them on location - and flew his Reconn out tru the tree canopy on this high-Risk-high-Gain mission.  In describing the flight Greg recalls " the wind buffeted me and the sound roared to the point I could hear nothing from the Scarab Reconn" and "So I relied on my spotter a lot  - I felt confident as the live vision was so stable from the Scarab itself"      Note: Props do not appear in the Video if the GoPro mount ≥ 115mm is used (this movie was shot on a shortened GoPromount)

Requires/Excludes

  • excludes Props - recommend our 1050 HQ 2 Bladed  props 2*CW and 2*CCW =  4 props
  • excludes ESC - 4 x 18Amp CarbonBird® ESC 500hz  
  • excludes 4 x CarbonBird® 888kva R15 motors 
  • Excludes FPV Gear (click top right to add it) unless selected as an option 
  • Requires assembly - not a TOY - Requires the ability to use tools skillfully - total assembly and testing time = approx 2-3 hours
  • Drones Require prop balancing - Props and motors can be balanced to run silky smooth by the owner - this is an important skill you must learn - its easy - but takes 3-10 mins per prop to do well - its a matter of adding blade tape to balance the props when running at speed - trial and error process called dynamic balancing - props are spun up and balanced while turning/spinning.  Pilots who say they did not balance their props are just short changing themselves - The entire IMU will fly better and the bearings will last longer when everything is balanced dynamicaly - Use the Forums and YouTube to search for Prop balancing videos.  AP requires very smooth props for smooth video.
  • Excludes Radio control Tx/Rx Taranis or Futaba or Specktrum
  • Excludes LiPo main power cell ; 4s4200->4S6600 45C LiPo for Longer flights
  • Excludes GoProHeroHDv3 camera - Highly recommended - massive improvement in sharpness over the v2
  • Excludes your FPV Ground-station 7"  and Goggles 
  • Excludes LiPo Charger ; Recommend iCharger ; We have tested heaps of B grade chargers - these ichargers are the only chargers on the market we actually recommend SAFE -100% - amazing balance charge and cell balancing - This is what happened to a customer who risked using another brand of charger without proper LiPo safety monitoring systems in the charger such as accurate cell balance and without thermal cutof protection and without a fire-proof bag.  Used correctly, attended -  LiPos are safe - used incorrectly they will burn at 700°C.
  • Battery charger power supply
  • Excludes a temperature controlled soldering iron - Hakko 888

 Build Notes
  1. When using the NAZA lite the 5.0v is provided by the NAZA PMU so immediately after calibration the LEARNING CURVE of all 4 ESC and also setting the programming with the included program card - THEN - be sure to REMOVE/cut the center RED wires on ALL 4 of the ESC control leads 
  2. Set NAZA motor idle speed to Medium or medium high
  3. The NAZA can be mounted with VELCRO on top of the Andromeda ; or optionally mount under the Carbon protective cover in a under-slung backet (optional mount is included)
  4. Be SUre to use the METAL halves on the boom holders on the LOWER side plate - as the landing gear are attached by a single M3*12 bolt & penny washer, AFTER the drone is finished - Mount the landing gear LAST, using this single bolt system.

Here is one customers build, an 8 Part how-to-build Reconnv3 Guide by one expert level Scarab pilot who installed a PARIS v5 autopilot -   - his ideas are his own and MWC accepts there are MANY ways to build the RECONN- its worth a watch and then decide how you want yours to be  -
for the NAZA install see the NAZA pages on this SITE - thks
