The ImmersionRC team set out to create a unique foldable mini-quad frame and the result is the Vortex Race Quad. The Vortex includes an integrated full-graphic OSD (on-screen display) and custom 5.8GHz video transmitter which feeds your video signal to headsets and monitors without interfering with 2.4GHz transmitter signals.
The integrated flight controller, with 3 axis Gyro, 3 axis Accelerometer, and barometer, is pre-programmed with CleanFlight, and is future-proof, supporting future updates via a USB port on the back of the quad for programming and updates. 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 are controlled by a dedicated 32-bit ARM processor.
The flexible Vortex camera mount supports both a flight cam and an HD camera such as a GoPro or Mobius. The flight cam is protected from impacts and is suspended from a vibration-dampened carbon-fiber plate. An adjustable bracket allows the camera to be tilted to ensure a good forward view during high-speed racing. A 3A switching regulator allows any HD camera to be powered from the flight pack, allowing unnecessary camera batteries to be left at home.
An on-board NexWaveRF 5.8GHz video transmitter, with 40 channel support, ensures compatibility with any 5.8Ghz A/V receiver on the market. ImmersionRC’s exclusive RaceBand allows 8 pilots to fly together
Top customer reviews
Utilizing Cleanflight on the laptop to make the adjustments was a breeze, once you learn how to use it. The learning curve is very small. Many YouTube videos if you need assistance. The camera is pretty decent (700TVL I believe). The clarity is pretty good too. I am using the FatShark Attitude V2 goggles. What is great about this quad is the OSD (On Screen Display) built right in. Your flight dynamics are right on the screen for quick reference. Altitude, Battery info (Volts and Amps), MaH used in flight, time in flight...etc) It's awesome. If you are new to setting up the dyanamics of the quad knows as PID (Proportional, Integral, and Derivative) settings, there are some presets you can choose from already built into the flight controller. Anywhere from Beginner settings to Advanced to All out racing.
The LEDs in the rear are extremely bright. Great if you are flying line-of-site so you can keep orientation if it gets out a little far. I highly recommend getting yourself a stock pile of 5030 (5x3) props. You WILL break them, whether it be from a crash or just grazing a few tree branches. They are thin but inexpensive. Stock up. I've crashed mine twice. Once was a cart-wheel for about 50ft. Broke 3 of the props, but that's it. The rest of the quad held up nicely. All four booms are foldable which absorbed much of the impact. I just folded them back out, snapping in place, and I was back up in the air.
Great, Great quad!! Highly recommended from an experienced quad pilot :))
1.Download clean flight
2.Plug your cortex into your PC with a mini usb
3.Change settings on your computer
One of the most commonly changed settings are the option to have motors NOT spin when armed.
I use this quad copter with a spektrum dx7 and a orangerx920 PPM receiver. Be SURE your receiver is PPM compatible or you will not be able to control the copter using your radio.
