HGLRC Rekon 6 HD: Ultra-light long-range GPS FPV drone

Photo of Rekon 6 HD

A few months ago, HGLRC contacted me regarding the possibility tor review their upcoming Rekon 6 HD long-range drone. At that time I didn’t own a compatible DJI FPV Goggles V2 so I turned down their offer respectfully. In addition to Caddx Nebula Nano camera, it can be equipped with a GoPro, SMO 4K, or Insta360 GO 2 camera.

The HGLRC Rekon 6 HD is built on a 242mm size ultra-light carbon fiber frame. For better crash resistance it comes with two side bracers. Its Aelous 2105.5 1500KV motors are matched with 2-leaf 6-inch propellers. It can be powered with 4S as well as with 6S lipo batteries. According to the advertised specs with a 4S/4000mAh Li-ION pack you can have up to 25 minutes of battery life.

Natively it is compatible with DJJ FPV transmitters. If you want to use a different controller you can opt for FrSky R9MM, Xm, or TBS Crossfire Nano RX radio receiver.

Designed for long-range flights it comes with an onboard M80GPS module and self-powered buzzer.

Update: There will be also an analog version of the Rekon 6 with Caddx Ratel 2 FPV Camera and Zeus 800mW VTX.

  1. I use the Hero8 on mine. I had to make a small stand for the battery so that I could place it a bit farther back when I have the Hero8 on, but besides that, flies great!

  2. I have the Rekon6 and it’s pretty amazing. The flight time is insane. I did 10 mins ripping around with a 4S and landed with plenty of juice left.

    For learning, I’d go for a whoop first. This is not a beginner drone at all.

    BTW, I run a Hero8 on mine and then post-process with ReelSteady and the video is amazing.

  3. I’m a newbie on the field, and I am still learning to fly FPV. Which quad would be best to learn effectively? A small 2.5-3″ CineWhoop or this 6″ LR?

    • I think a CW is much safer for the learning process. After you become comfortable flying through FPV goggles you will surely enjoy the HGLRC Rekon 6 HD!
