The Vortex 285’s foldable tubular arms are replaced with virtually unbreakable 4mm Carbon Fiber flat arms, with twelve M3 aluminium spacers wrapped in custom plastic.
The frame is designed to hit objects which don’t like to move out of the way, and survive to fly again in the next race.
The 2mm Carbon Fiber top-plate is designed to take some serious abuse, backed up by 2mm FR4 skid plates which survive scraping across the occasional parking-lot floor.
Fusion Gen2 Flight Controller
The high performance ‘F3’ processor provides > 2x the performance of it’s predecessor, allowing lower loop times, and better flight performance.
PIDs are adjusted on-screen, in easy-to-use menus, driven directly from the R/C Tx.
Integrated 5.8GHz Video Tx with RaceBand
An on-board NexWaveRF 5.8GHz video transmitter, with 40 channel support, ensures compatibility with any 5.8Ghz A/V Rx on the market.
New for the Vortex 250, is Dynamic Power Control. Transmitter power is lowered automatically when the quad is disarmed, or ready for a race to start, to reduce interference to other pilots.
ImmersionRC’s exclusive RaceBand allows 8 pilots to fly together, while being 100% legal for US resellers to distribute. All channels fall within the legal US Ham band.
The on-board OSD allows video transmitter channels to be chosen using the R/C transmitter, no more dip-switches to flip, and no more frequency lists to remember.
Full compatibility with all ImmersionRC/FatShark, Boscam, Team Black-Sheep, DJI, and ImmersionRC RaceBand channels.
Pro-Tuner, In The Box
The Vortex 250 continues in the footsteps of it’s Vortex 285 big-brother, and not only ships with a pro-tune that flies like it is on rails, but adds a selection of pro-tunes created by some of the experts in the hobby.
Some of the biggest names in FPV Quad Racing have abused countless LiPos tuning the Vortex for peak performance, and have produced some stunning videos in the process.
Lights!, Music!, Action!!!
Ok, there is no music, we’ll leave that to the post-processing, but there are lights, and plenty of action!
A set of 8 24-bit RGB LEDs sit on the tail of the Vortex, sandwiched safely between the upper, and lower frame plates.
These LEDs, controlled by a dedicated 32-bit ARM processor (yeah… what were we thinking!), can show something as mundane as the pilot’s favourite color, just about anything else we decide to roll into the user-upgradable firmware.
Brake lights?, Shift to white for max. acceleration?, Indicators for polite left/right turns?, or just a pattern to remind you of 80’s Discos.
Since Airgonay’s now-famous ‘Star Wars’ video, rear lights on miniquads have become not a ‘nice to have’, but a ‘no fun without ’em’.
‘Gen2’ Custom 32-bit, 20A ESCs, with OneShot125
Custom 20A ESCs (22A Peak), with OneShot125, and regenerative braking, for crisp-responsive flight usingCleanFlight. A 32-bit ARM processor runs each ESC, ensuring plenty of processing power to drive even the most fussy brushless motors.
The second generation of ImmersionRC’s ‘EzESC’, with race-proven reliability, and the extra punch required to spin the 2204/2300kV motors.
These ESCs also support our innovative rotorSENSE, which programs prop direction with the flick of a finger. No more swapping motor wires.
