The Rekon 5 is based on the original Dave_C FPV MiniLongRange design. This five-inch platform is an evolution of the MicroLongRange concept adapted to carry more payload. Like its smaller 4″ cousin, this 5″ platform can reach flight times of over 25 minutes while being very quiet, efficient, and relatively low cost compared to 7″ quads that are usually used for long-range flights. The main advantage of 5″ compared to the 4″ is the ability to carry loads like GoPros and Lithium-Ion batteries without affecting flight performance and noise level too much. On top of that, the cruising speed is increased and the ability to do acrobatic freestyle maneuvers is noticeably improved. This platform can also be used with a wider variety of batteries depending on the intended use: 850-1800mAh on the 4S version and 550-1300mAh on the 6S version will work without issues. Both versions are also compatible with 3000mAh 4S Li-Ion packs if you are looking for maximum flight time.
The Rekon 5 features an innovative frame design using single-piece front and rear arms locked by an aluminum bolt. The bolt is used to create a strong and stiff center section of the frame, locking the arms and de-coupling forces from the rest of the frame. This allows the use of use very light M2 hardware and thin carbon plates on the other parts of the frame, reducing the overall weight for maximum efficiency. On top of that, the bolt makes it possible to apply much more torque and it’s not prone to break or strip like M2 or M3 hardware often does. A lot of attention was also put toward the design of the front and camera mount. Dead cat frames are inherently prone to take heavy impacts in this area since the arms are swept backward and the front is exposed. This is why the Rekon 5 uses a flexible, 3D printed canopy supported by a carbon brace to absorb impact energy and protect the camera in case of a crash.

– Shock absorbing TPU front with integrated GoPro mount
– Foldable crossfire immortal T-mount inspired by Alexandre Arvinte (@ledrone.club)
– Mild dead cat design reducing the props in view while not affecting flight performance
– Optional braces for improved vibration dampening and crash resistance
– Optimized for 2004 – 2204 motors with 12×12 M2 mounts
– GPS mount for M80 GPS
– External buzzer mount for Soter Buzzer
What is your worst fear when flying long range?
Right, you lose your quad in a no recovery zone.
And now it’s gone forever!
