ImmersionRC Vortex 285 ARTF Mini Racing Quad With T Motors
The ImmersionRC Vortex 285 First Person View FPV racing system team have combined a unique foldable mini-quad frame and added the best of ImmersionRC products to deliver one of the best racing systems to date. This Vortext is supplied with the high-end 1806, 2300kV T-Motors for best performance while racing.
The ImmersionRC Vortex 285 has an integrated flight controller, with a 3 axis Gyro, 3 axis Accelerometer, and barometer pre-programmed with CleanFlight; this means that the Vortex flight controller is future-proof through downloadable updates. The PIDs (tuning of the systems performance) are adjusted on-screen, this is a very easy to use menu, and being driven directly from the R/C Tx there is no need for a laptop at the field, no more dip-switches to flip or adjust.
The Vortex 285 has a direct high-speed interface to a full-graphic OSD system, with USB port on the back of the Vortex 285 quad for programming and updates. The pre-installed NexWaveRF 5.8GHz video transmitter, with 40 channel support, ensures compatibility with any 5.8 GHz A/V Rx on the market. ImmersionRC’s exclusive RaceBand allows for up to 8 pilots to fly together. This makes the Vortex a very flexible system which should work with any other systems you already have. Please check that you are allowed to use this transmitter in your country.
The flexible Vortex 285 camera mount supports both a flight cam, and an HD camera such as a GoPro, or Mobius. The flight camera is protected from impacts, and is mounted on a vibration-dampened carbon-fiber plate. The Vortex 285 has an adjustable bracket allows the camera to be tilted to ensure a good forward view during high-speed racing.
The powerful 3A switching regulator built in to the Vortex allows you to add any HD cam (GoPro included), this will take its power direct from the flight pack, allowing unnecessary camera batteries to be left at home and reducing the overall weight of the system.
The Vortex 285 includes an industry-first; you can tune the flight parameters from Pro-Racers right in the box. Just select the racer, prop size, HD camera choice, and the Vortex 285 OSD will setup the flight controller for you.
The Vortex 285 has been in testing and some of the biggest names in FPV Quad Racing have tweaked it for peak performance. A set of 8 24-bit RGB LEDs sit on the tail of the Vortex 285, sandwiched safely between the upper, and lower frame plates. These LEDs are controlled by a dedicated 32-bit ARM processor, this means that you program the LEDs to show something as mundane as the pilot’s favourite color, or just about anything else which is released in future updates of the user-upgradable firmware.
Just add a compatible R/C Rx (EzUHF preferred of course), a battery, and go fly, everything else is included, from the SpiroNET Tx antenna to the props.
