The Blade® brand and ImmersionRC have teamed up to deliver the cutting-edge Vortex 150 FPV racer with Spektrum™ technology. It's fully integrated, tuned and equipped so you can be competitive in a matter of minutes. Race-seasoned pilots can take advantage of a custom power system, cutting-edge 32-bit processing power and full-graphic jet fighter inspired OSD. Plus, there's a programmable LED system you can customize to flash at the competition. Perfect for smaller courses or exploring the backyard or abandoned building, it's durable and fun to fly.

Fully Integrated

Fully integrated into this machine is the flight controller, full-graphic OSD, BlackBox recorder, 40-channel video transmitter and a dampened flight camera. Loose wiring in the Vortex 150 Pro is virtually nonexistent for a professional look that's easy to maintain.

Seven 32-Bit ARM Processors

Not many mini-quads out there like the Vortex 150 racer can claim the cutting edge support of seven, fully integrated 32-bit ARM processors. There's a dedicated ARM for the flight controller, another for the full-graphic OSD, another just for the programmable LED board at the back of the quad and one ARM for each of the four custom high performance ESCs.

Tough Construction

Built to survive attempts at cutting down virtually anything in its path, the Vortex 150 is built to take a hit and keep on ticking!

Fusion F3 with CleanFlight

The highly integrated Fusion F3 flight controller is equipped with CleanFlight firmware pre-loaded and a 32-bit processor for an out-of the- box control feel that seems almost intuitive. Plus, the software is future-proof with supporting updates easily uploaded via the robust USB port through-hole

Dynamic Power Control

The Dynamic Power Control function of the video transmitter lowers power automatically when the Vortex 150 is disarmed or ready for a race to start so that interference from other racers on the line is minimized.

Wireless Video Control

NexWaveRF 5.8 GHz video transmitter technology includes 40 channels of support so that it's compatible with any 5.8 GHz A/V headset on the market. The integrated RaceBand system allows up to eight pilots to fly together and is controlled via the OSD so choosing the clearest channel is all done through the RC transmitter.

ProTuned

The preloaded firmware has been ProTuned to make this quad fly like its on rails. You can explore other ProTune uploads and try out what some of the biggest names in FPV quad racing have shared so that the Vortex 150 Pro can fit your exact performance needs.

Bright LEDs and Lost Model Alarm

A set of eight 24-bit RGB LEDs is protected between the upper and lower frames on the tail end. Through a dedicated 32-bit ARM processor, users can program a favorite color, brake lights, turn indicators or just about anything your imagination can conjure.

Find it, Fast!

Integrated into the Vortex 150 is a lost model beeper that's loud enough to be coined “ear piercing.” So if you ever cut loose, the ease of finding your Vortex 150 will help you get back into the game fast.

Custom ESCs with OneShot125

The custom ESCs have a 22-amp peak, fast OneShot125 communication protocol and regenerative braking for response that's cutting-edge. Each ESC has its own 32-bit ARM processor for the processing power to sustain intense maneuvering. Special rotorSENSE support means that the motor direction is simply programmed with the flick of a finger.

Custom V-Spec Motors

The custom high-speed V-Spec 1304 brushless outrunner motors feature a high-speed rating and spin 3" propellers for the punch to accelerate quickly and conquer the most demanding race courses.

BlackBox Recorder

Two megabytes of flash memory has been integrated for BlackBox flight log storage. This powerful capability combines the high-speed data in a way that makes tweaking PIDs (proportional-integral-derivative) to a very specific stabilization need simple.

Full Graphic Display with EzOSD

The full-graphic On Screen Display (OSD) on-board provides in-flight updates of critical parameters. The EzOSD menu allows all options to be programmed in the field using the RC transmitter and a headset or monitor. Several OSD layouts are included. A real-time interface with the flight controller enables artificial horizons, fighter-jet style displays and an exchange of flight parameters. All OSD layouts include screen-center alerts for critical warnings such as battery voltage, EzUHF Link Critical and more.

Bind-N-Fly® Completion

Now it's possible to start enjoying high-performance racing virtually the moment you open the box. Just charge the battery, bind the model to your Spektrum™ DSMX® technology compatible transmitter and fly.
