ImmersionRC's Vortex Racing Quadcopter

ImmersionRC's Vortex Racing Quadcopter

We’ve shown you how to build your own racing quadcopter, but here’s a ready-to-fly kit that can get you flying sooner. We chat with ImmersionRC about their upcoming Vortex 250mm quad, which was designed with FPV flying in mind. It comes bundled with all the essential components pre-installed and integrated–all you need is a transmitter and video goggles.

This video was shot with a Sony PXW-X70 camera, which we’re testing. Thanks to B&H for providing us with gear for CES! Check it out here: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1072752-REG/sony_pxw_x70_professional_xdcam_compact.html

    do u get a transmitter with this

  2. Nate Cordova on July 24, 2022 at 7:53 pm

    350-380 my ass…its 450 on their site. If you are just getting started, get a cheaper quad that is under 300. TX and googles/monitor will be additional costs.

    would it be possible to easily add a GPS system on this also?

  4. Michael Moody on July 24, 2022 at 7:54 pm

    When will the Vortex be available?

  5. doluseb on July 24, 2022 at 7:55 pm

    small motors, tubular CF with plastic everywhere. ccd cam looks straight on…this is probably going to be one of the most fragile/not that quick racing minis out there. for 380 you can build quite a nice one.

    Where can u buy these multirotor/quadcopters.
    Or
    When does it comes out

  7. nanoverse on July 24, 2022 at 8:00 pm

    Anyone know the goggles at 2:49 with the DJI guys?

  8. Rill Poogue on July 24, 2022 at 8:00 pm

    Just wondering where you bought your RTF Vortex kit from? And what is the best FPV video goggles?

  9. Benjamin McDonnell on July 24, 2022 at 8:00 pm

    Would this be a good gateway for beginners wanting to learn how to fly multirotors at a cheap price?

  10. Jett Isley on July 24, 2022 at 8:02 pm

    I like the asain guy

  11. DronerUK on July 24, 2022 at 8:02 pm

    Like the look of this mini! Couple of questions tho,
    With such small ESC’s (9mm)..is this quad limited to 3S? 
    With the ESC built into the arms would you have to replace the arm to swap an ESC out? @ £$?

  12. djSpinege on July 24, 2022 at 8:02 pm

    how many Mw is the vtx ?

  13. Tol Boi on July 24, 2022 at 8:07 pm

    1:21 er thats a XuGong v2 pro, not a vortex…

  14. Roy Jefferson on July 24, 2022 at 8:08 pm

    What transmitter and receiver is compatible with this quad.

  15. Amron coory on July 24, 2022 at 8:09 pm

    Rubbish product!

  16. Bodhi Geraci on July 24, 2022 at 8:10 pm

    350? lol 450….

  17. Evan Smith on July 24, 2022 at 8:12 pm

    Sweet I will be buying one!

  18. Pa RC Hobby Videos on July 24, 2022 at 8:14 pm

    I guess they were just TESTING the Sony PXW-X70 camera, NOT the quad.
    SAD.

  19. Joseph Davis on July 24, 2022 at 8:16 pm

    Boris B, Charpu, MetallDanny and UmmaGawd having been putting this beast through its paces and it is performing incredibly well. The ability to tune PIDs on the OSD like that out of the box is amazing! My only complaint? It’s March 30th and I’m still anxiously waiting!

  20. hossmouk on July 24, 2022 at 8:17 pm

    Yes Sweden please!! or shipping to Sweden?

  21. Danny Lightning CSR on July 24, 2022 at 8:19 pm

    If a kit is ready to fly you should not need to buy anything else to fly it.   it should have everything that you need to fly it in the kit,  it shoud be built and everything programmed and ready go go,    just charge the battery, check to make sure everything is working correctly and in order and its 100% ready to fly.    buy a plane or helicopter RFT kit and you get the  aircraft, receiver, radio, battery, charger  the whole shebang and its all built and programmed and ready to go.    charge the battery, power it up and fly right out of the box nothing else needed. .   so this is really a almost ready to fly kit.  not sure why they are saying these quad kits are ready to fly when they are not,   you still need to purchase at least something to make it ready to fly so it is not ready to fly.

    Got mine on preorder

  23. Abutalib on July 24, 2022 at 8:21 pm

    Thanks for video . Deos it comes with functional barometer that works like gps ? I mean does this feature help maintain it’s altitude while acceleration? Thanks

  24. ABMNS PRODUCTION on July 24, 2022 at 8:21 pm

    ImmersionRC sucks!
    Worst company ever!

  25. Дима Билык on July 24, 2022 at 8:22 pm

    the diameter of the pipe carboxylic

  26. RCfly CH on July 24, 2022 at 8:24 pm

    Cool! Nice Copter! 🙂

  27. Baldrick's Cunning Plan on July 24, 2022 at 8:25 pm

    I have a problem with my Vortex. I have really bad yawing to the left. The more i push the throttle. The more it spins to the left. Strange thing is that it only happens with 3s packs. If i use 4s. It doesn’t happen at all. Anyone have any ideas what is causing this?

  28. SHAWN HAWKINS on July 24, 2022 at 8:26 pm

    the props are made out of pasta

  29. SHAWN HAWKINS on July 24, 2022 at 8:27 pm

    They changed the LEDs. It doesn’t have the rainbow function and the button is for changing freq on the fpv

  30. Scott TurboSix on July 24, 2022 at 8:28 pm

    estimated 350-380 in the video. now that its out, $450

  31. Marc Pedersen on July 24, 2022 at 8:30 pm

    Unfortunately no retailers in Denmark.. 🙁

  32. sgtsnakeeyes11 on July 24, 2022 at 8:30 pm

    they forgot to test it

  33. L0af on July 24, 2022 at 8:32 pm

    Why do you need a gopro is the board camera bad as compared to a gopro?

  34. Александр on July 24, 2022 at 8:33 pm

    Do you have any plans to sell the frame separately from the other stuff?

  35. pmikey666 on July 24, 2022 at 8:33 pm

  40. Epic on July 24, 2022 at 8:42 pm

    Where can one buy one of these ?

  41. kennethpappas on July 24, 2022 at 8:42 pm

    This would be hell to repair with everything buried.

  42. Raptorlishus on July 24, 2022 at 8:43 pm

    when is this gonna be available ?

  43. Wyvern on July 24, 2022 at 8:45 pm

    Although I do like the looks of a clean layout- it makes for unnecessarily difficult or involved repairs.

    I always try to build everything modular and easy to access first, and pretty second.

  44. Photon Life on July 24, 2022 at 8:45 pm

    so cool!

  45. m r on July 24, 2022 at 8:46 pm
