ImmersionRC Vortex Racing Quadcopter Drone
Almost Ready to Fly FPV Mini Racer full of features and packed with speed.
Revolutionary Vortex Racing Quad
Its designed for speed and agility and will leave the competition in your rear view mirror so to speak.
Everything on board makes this a brilliant machine to rip up the racing tracks and with quality on board camera and Race Band compatible TX your fpv racing experience will be taken to a whole new level.
Brief Overview of the Vortex Racing Drone
ImmersionRC crew combined a unique folding mini quadcopter drone frame, then mixed in the gear that ImmersionRC does and knows well. This is the Race Version with the Top Spec T-Motor 1806-2300kv and Boy do these things shift and have plenty of pull in them. Infact they can scream along and sound awesome.
With an integrated full graphic OSD On Screen Display which can be customised , linked directly to the flight controller pre loaded with Cleanflight. Feeding that into a custom and integrated, 5.8GHz video transmitter vtx with 350mW of output power, and its now just right for racing with friends foes and rivals.
Just add a compatible RC Radio inc Rx ,and a battery we personally recommend the Tattu series, and go along to the field and fly, everything else is included, from the SpiroNET Tx antenna, to the props making this a quick to assemble and get in the air kit.
Built in Integrated 5.8GHz Video Tx on the ImmersionRC Vortex Racing Quadcopter
The On board NexWave RF 5.8GHz video transmitter VTX, with 40 channel support, ensures compatibility with any 5.8Ghz A/V Rx available on the market such as ImmersionRC , Boscam and DJI Innovations.
ImmersionRCs exclusive and brand new RaceBand allows upto 8 fpv pilots to fly together.
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. This makes selecting channels a very quick operation.
Full compatibility with all ImmersionRC/FatShark, Boscam, Team Black-Sheep, DJI, and ImmersionRC RaceBand channels.
Flexible Flight Controller with CleanFlight Pre Installed
The integrated flight controller, with 3 axis Gyro, 3 axis Accelerometer, and barometer, is pre-programmed with CleanFlight, and is also future proof and supports any future updates.
A direct, high-speed interface to the full-graphic OSD, and a USB port on the back of the quad for programming and updates, complete the package.
All the PIDs are adjusted on-screen, in easy to use menus, driven directly from the R/C Tx.
Flexible Camera Options
The flexible Vortex camera mount supports both a flight cam which is supplied, and an HD camera such as a GoPro Hero 3 Gopro Hero 4, or Mobius.
The flight cam is protected from impacts, and is suspended from a vibration-dampened carbon plate. An adjustable bracket allows the camera to be tilted to ensure a good forward view during high speed flight.
And the icing on the cake, a 3A switching regulator allows any HD cam GoPro included to be powered from the flight pack, allowing unnecessary camera batteries to be left at home.
Pro Tuner In The Box
The ImmersionRC Vortex includes an industry first, tuning parameters from Pro-Racers right in the box. Just select the racer, prop size, HD camera choice, etc. and the Vortex OSD will setup the flight controller for you.
Some of the biggest names in FPV Quad Racing have abused and thrashed countless Lipos tuning the Vortex for maximum performance, and have produced some amazing videos in the process. You can select there settings and go and race.
Lights, Music add the camera and Action
A set of 8 RGB LEDs sit on the tail of the Vortex, seated nicely between the upper and lower frame plates.
Controlled by a dedicated 32-bit ARM processor, can show the pilot’s favourite color ETC .Brake lights?, Shift to white for max acceleration, Indicators for polite left or right turns?,
Whatever you choose these can be configured according to your own style.
Custom 32-bit, 12A ESCs, with OneShot125 Flashed Esc Speed Controllers
Custom 12A ESCs (16A Peak), with OneShot125, and regenerative braking, for crisp-responsive flight using CleanFlight. A 32-bit ARM processor runs each ESC, ensuring plenty of processing power to drive even the most fussy brushless motors.
These ESCs are the first worldwide to use our unique rotorSENSE, which programs prop direction with the flick of a finger. No more swapping motor wires.
Recliners, and Incliners
As racing quads approach race-speeds, HD cameras have a habit of recording very high definition footage of… the ground. Two optional kits available for the Vortex provide a recliner for the GoPro, or an incliner for the mobius.
These kits are shipped with the appropriate rubber dampers, and in the case of the GoPro kit, also a plug-and-play power cable, to allow the GoPro to be powered without an internal battery (and it’s unwanted weight).
Full Graphic OSD, with EzOSD pedigree
An on-board full-graphic OSD provides in-flight updates of critical parameters, and sports a menu which allows all options to be programmed in the field using the R/C Tx, and a set of goggles, or an LCD screen.
A real-time interface with the flight controller enables artificial horizons, F-18 style displays, and exchange of flight parameters.
Seven! 32-bit ARM processors
There are not many quads out there with that claim to fame… the Vortex sports no less than seven 32-bit ARM processors, all working together for maximum fun-factor.
A dedicated ARM for the flight controller, another for the full-graphic OSD, even another for the LED board at the back of the quad, and then four high performance ARMs for the custom ESCs.
Custom OSD Layouts
Several OSD layouts are included in the bundle:
- A classical EzOSD-type layout, with all critical basic parameters available on screen.
- A Heads-Up display which would be more at home in a fighter jet, with artificial horizon and altitude indicator.
- A Race layout, with just the critical parameters, tucked around the edges of the display.
All OSD layouts include screen-center alerts for critical warnings, such as battery voltage, EzUHF Link Critical, etc.
