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)

 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.
