Vortex 150 Micro Racing Drone | Flite Test

Vortex 150 Micro Racing Drone | Flite Test

Josh, Alex, TJ and friends test the Vortex 150 mini racing quad and its capabilities.

Like what you see? Check it out on our store: https://goo.gl/v9IiyC

Coming in below 250 gram the Vortex 150 is not considered a ‘drone’ in many parts of the world. This allows the Vortex 150 Mini to be flown in many more places than its big brother the Vortex 250 Pro. Doors are opened to fly in a typical garden, or small park. A swing-set becomes a perfect power-loop target and garden furniture becomes a race gate, a new world of possibilities has just been opened up!

    So much fun! Can’t wait to build one

  2. vladoportos on May 6, 2022 at 6:28 pm

    3 min flight time is quite small :-/ have hardly time to look around in the air… not their fault, but still :-/

  3. Nate Dogg on May 6, 2022 at 6:29 pm

    Give it a month the price will be 109

  4. Robert Yamakaitis on May 6, 2022 at 6:33 pm

    damn i want one of those

  5. Superfly on May 6, 2022 at 6:34 pm

    why did you present it in a way that we have never seen your stuff before? looked like a sales pitch

  6. gaptoofgranny on May 6, 2022 at 6:35 pm

    Have you created an episode for people, who are looking to get into FPV, what to pick up if they want to do it in the most cost-effective way?

  7. RC-Aviation.ru on May 6, 2022 at 6:35 pm

    Cool! 🙂

  8. Thomas F on May 6, 2022 at 6:35 pm

    Ive got a tyrant 150 ,are there any more, and how do they compare?

  9. IMTIAZ AHMED SIDDIQUEE on May 6, 2022 at 6:37 pm

    @FliteTest can a gopro hero 5 be attached to the quad?

  10. Green69Hornet on May 6, 2022 at 6:38 pm

    can you strap a GoPro on top to record nice images? Will it still fly?

  11. Raptor50aus on May 6, 2022 at 6:39 pm

    Well I’m on my second Vortex 150
    the first one vtx has locked to 5725 and only 8mw so thats going back to Immersion
    the second 150 O flew today and that flys great on 4S but the motors stop midflight and it falls out of the sky but then works fine again
    I see the flight summary when the motors stop
    I have setup am arm switch on my dx9

  12. #Harry fpv on May 6, 2022 at 6:39 pm

    I love the fact you can fly these almost anywhere and still have fun.

  13. Paddy McCarthy on May 6, 2022 at 6:41 pm

    F.L.I.G.H.T Just in case you didn’t know. (Don’t call you Justin).

  14. Brian Adair on May 6, 2022 at 6:42 pm

    Just received my Vortex 150 from the FliteTest team, super fast shipping, Can’t wait to get it up in the air!

  15. Scott Guymon on May 6, 2022 at 6:43 pm

    I bought my vortex 150 from you guys and i love it! i just don’t have lots of time to build and tweak like i used to. I just what to fly and this thing does just that and very well.

  16. jonathan kohl on May 6, 2022 at 6:43 pm

    I love how as soon as Eric says "this is scary" you can see a giant face in the clouds at 7:10 watching him fly.

  17. LaugeJ8 on May 6, 2022 at 6:45 pm

    Hi guys at FliteTest I was wondering what the easiest to build and use DIY cardboard plane is from your website

  18. Ray Dove Choi on May 6, 2022 at 6:46 pm

    Is there any difference with the Green model, Vortex 150 Pro?

  19. alex david santiago on May 6, 2022 at 6:48 pm

    I am going to florida next month. FT is going to be near Florida or know about some nice store or club near Orlando?

  20. B58eli on May 6, 2022 at 6:48 pm

    The funny thing is lol I live 5 miles away from the Lake Wales Airport, Wow Flite Test you guys were so close! Keep up the good work and God Bless!

  22. KYDAWG1 on May 6, 2022 at 6:51 pm

    Guys in your store you show this package at 3 pounds…. that is way inflated. Maybe 1/2 of that (the box is sooooo small), so your shipping costs might be a bit fluffy. Just an FYI.

  23. Dennild on May 6, 2022 at 6:52 pm

    i love my little 150mm i build last year so im not surprised they would love this formfactor 🙂

  24. anglovirtual on May 6, 2022 at 6:52 pm

    I do think these inflated prices will be the downfall for US and European multirotor manufacturers soon. There’s no loyalty in trade. And who’s going to pay double the price when you can get just as good, if not better, from Chinese manufacturers for so much less?

    Soon the Chinese quads will have surpassed their western counterparts- then companies like ImmersionRC really will be in trouble…

  25. Jason Bergeron on May 6, 2022 at 6:52 pm

    This quad is so fast and so strong you would have to fly it straight down into concrete to damage it and it would still be fine

  26. Politically Homeless on May 6, 2022 at 6:53 pm

    They put the XT30 on only to keep it under FAA regs so you don’t need to register. I believe ImmersionRC knew that everyone and their mom was gonna slap a XT60 on their 150 Pro. I love ❤️ my mini Vortex but I found it needs the higher mah and juice so I use pulse 860mah 4S or even a Venom 1000mah. Just my personal opinion. Love the topic guys keep em coming!!

  27. Politically Homeless on May 6, 2022 at 6:55 pm

    I have a question. In the TX wizard there are 3 profiles you can choose. What is the difference between those profiles? There was not any info in the box on this. Thanks guys.

  28. Nimbuslayer on May 6, 2022 at 6:56 pm

    Hey guys, FYI the V150 carries a Session 5 very well. I only lose about 45 seconds when cruising (~5.5 minutes) and maybe a full minute when pushing it (~4 minutes). I keep the mounting simple by sandwiching the stock Session mount between the top of the battery, and a slightly longer velcro strap from Rotor Riot. I don’t use the sticky locking base but I did add a thin layer of foam rubber between the battery and the Session mount, such as the stock padding that’s already mounted to the V150. The width of the battery matches the GoPro mount well and the stock mount allows easy camera tilt to match whatever style you fly. Enjoy and Rotors On!

  30. Mike M on May 6, 2022 at 6:57 pm

    I’d like to know how a first time flyer could fly this. I’ve got the same quad and when I push the right stick forward it just starts tumbling and crashes. All I’ve got is a $279.00 doorstop.

  31. George & Heather on May 6, 2022 at 6:58 pm

    could you run a gopro session 5 on this or is it too small? not new to drones but new to racing/freestyle

  32. Luis Beyrer on May 6, 2022 at 7:01 pm

    When you get to see the first prototype last year before the media had any idea about it!

  33. Fire Stix das on May 6, 2022 at 7:02 pm

    I just thought of it a day before yesterday

  34. GoatZilla on May 6, 2022 at 7:04 pm

    Solid shilling.

  35. Dr. Zafer Guler on May 6, 2022 at 7:04 pm

    Josh, Alex and all you talk very very quicly I can not understand..Please talk like Mr President!

  36. Withered Perception on May 6, 2022 at 7:04 pm

    will this bind to my DX8?

  37. Bonde Bos on May 6, 2022 at 7:06 pm

    $300? Hahaha lol

  38. Michael Petale on May 6, 2022 at 7:08 pm

    A bit expensive I think? ? A lot more that are better options out there guys!👍👍🏻👏

  39. Fidel Castration on May 6, 2022 at 7:09 pm

    whats the terminology used for when you need to turn down the quads "sensitivity"?

  40. JWattz on May 6, 2022 at 7:12 pm

    thats about the size cereal bowl i use lol

  41. Joe Hoskinson on May 6, 2022 at 7:15 pm

    At 8:33 it looks like the vortex is sitting on a massive quad frame….

  42. Marty Payne on May 6, 2022 at 7:17 pm

    what reciever do you guys use in this quad? I use spektrum and don’t know whether I need a 3.3 volt receiver or the 5? money is tight is like to spend as little as possible. does the flight controller need 3.3v or 5v? please get back to me!!!

  43. Zeb Schreiber on May 6, 2022 at 7:17 pm

    I love flying this quad! this is what im learning on, "started with simulator which is a must it will save you lots of $" its not too much to handle but enough to get the adrenalin going, the wind was blowing it around pretty good today but wind dont scare me it just makes things more interesting lol. i learned to love the wind with my planes. snow sucks though its hard to read the terrain i flew right into a snow bank today i was flying around a big rock pile and there was some gaps i was playing with but what i didn’t see was the snow pile it looked flat in the fpv but i soon found out otherwise lol. this thing does hold up to moisture pretty well. i have gotten mine pretty wet a couple times but i did stop flying if i hit the snow or get it really wet and put it away til it dries out. i wish the beeper was about 10x louder though, i dont hear well but my son does so he helps me find it when i crash. great videos i have learned so much from them you guys are awesome

  44. FPV FREAKY on May 6, 2022 at 7:21 pm

    Who the hell is working your channel camera.. zoom in zoom out zoom in zoom out 😳 dodging my eyeballs up

  45. kamrul hasan on May 6, 2022 at 7:22 pm

    ১৫০ টাটার ড্যন কিনতে চাই

  46. Henry Ganzasch on May 6, 2022 at 7:23 pm

    can i fly a race drone like the vortex 150 ore the ft 210 with a not very hitec expensive transmitter like the spektrum dx5e?

  47. riep69 on May 6, 2022 at 7:24 pm

    now i need a cheap video receiver to begin with FPV
    obviously not googles as their price is way too high :/

    what could i buy?

  48. AL Villalobos on May 6, 2022 at 7:26 pm

    I just bought this machine…. The Flite Test version. Does it come with the Mario song?

  49. A.I. Thinker on May 6, 2022 at 7:26 pm

    Awesome vid and awesome quad👍
    Just bought one with 4 batteries. Thank you guys for introducing this to me and love the channel. Can you recommend a good lipo charger? Dual charging or more would be nice and one that discharges at a reasonable rate for storage.

  50. Uvuvwevwevwe Onyetenyebwe Ugwemubwem Ossas on May 6, 2022 at 7:27 pm

    Which is the range of this dron?
