Recon Flight HUD - Album with Screenshots Can't Post

My Recon Flight HUD (#89 of 616) just arrived. I haven't had a chance to test it out, but having owned every Recon unit (Transcend, MOD, MOD Live) since they came on the market 2-3 years ago, I'm very familiar with them.

  • Flight HUD Photos

  • Flight HUD Screenshots

  • YouTube - Zeal Transcend Interface [1st Generation Recon]

  • YouTube - MOD Live Interface before the recent software update [2nd Generation Recon]


  • The Flight HUD user interface hasn't been updated to the new 3rd generation UI that the MOD Live received a few months ago. However, compared to the MOD Live, the startup time is very short (~10s vs 40s). This isn't surprising, because Flight HUD is based on the relatively lightweight MOD. MOD Live is based on Android; it has more features, but it's also more power hungry.

    It's possible to zero out the altitude by pressing the left/right buttons on the remote. Those buttons adjust the altitude up or down by 3 ft per click. There is also an option to switch between Snow and Flight modes. Let me know if you have any other questions.

    What helmet would you recommend to use with the Flight HUD goggles? I just got mine and they bulge out quite a bit.

    I'll have to see how it fits mine when I'm at the DZ. My helmet's in my locker there. Most ski helmets and Protecs would work fine. For full-face helmets, I'd remove the MOD unit and find a way to place it inside. See this thread.

    Hi,
    I just got mine and was surprised that there was no doc in the box - just the Uvex Goggles warranty and a nicely printed card from Recon - no instructions, no description - nothing.
    Anyhow, I managed to work out how to charge it, how to switch it on - but then I hit a snag: The remote won't connect to the HUD. The HUD says press any button to connect, so I do, but it doesn't seem to want to connect. Am I doing something wrong? Have I missed a step?
    Help! Unimpressed
    Greg

    mine said something along the lines of press power button to connect. When I pressed the power button it highlighted the line of numbers on it. It then counted down and connected.

    Hold the remote so that the back button is on the bottom left and the LED is on the top left. Hold down the left and right button together and the remote should go into pair mode (LED will flash orange). When you turn on your Flight HUD, you should see the 6-character remote ID. Press the power button on the Flight HUD and any button on the remote.

    I had a blast flying mine this weekend. The frustrating part is trying to upload the data to the Engage website. I am not having much luck there.
