Put Yourself in the Pilot’s Seat
From a tiny video camera mounted on the multirotor, real-time action is delivered before your eyes on a headset you wear like eyeglasses. It’s an RC experience so immersive that you’ll feel as though you’re actually sitting in the pilot’s seat. The Spektrum™, Fat Shark Teleporter V4 headset with digital head tracking and SpiroNET antenna (SPMVG1100) is an outstanding choice.
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 250 Pro is virtually nonexistent for a professional look that’s easy to maintain.
Seven 32-Bit ARM Processors
Not many mini-drones out there like the Vortex 250 Pro 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 drone and one ARM for each of the four custom high-performance ESCs.
Built to survive attempts at cutting down virtually anything in its path, the Vortex 250 Pro airframe features a 2mm top plate and 2mm bottom plate with 2mm FR4 skid plates. No less than 15 aluminium stand-off members complement the structure. Carbon-fibre motor arms, 4mm thick, prevent motor twisting in the air and collapse against the ground.
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 250 Pro 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 flight transmitter.
The compact Vortex 250 Pro is flexible enough to feature both a flight cam and a second video recorder (sold separately). The included FatShark 700TVL v2 CMOS flight cam is protected from impact and supported by a carbon-fibre plate that’s vibration dampened. Its adjustable bracket makes it possible to set the camera tilt for the forward view that suits you best.
The ProTune Advantage
The preloaded firmware has been ProTuned to make this drone fly like it’s on rails. You can explore other ProTune uploads available and try out what some of the biggest names in FPV quad racing have shared so that the Vortex 250 Pro can fit your exact performance needs.
Big, Bright LEDs
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.
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 manoeuvring. 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 2204 brushless outrunner motors feature a high-speed 2300Kv rating and spin Gemfan 5045 GF blunt-nose propellers for the punch to accelerate quickly and conquer the most demanding race courses.
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 stabilisation need simple.
Lost Model Alarm
Integrated into the Vortex 250 Pro 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 250 Pro will help you get back into the game fast.
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-centre alerts for critical warnings such as battery voltage, EzUHF Link Critical and more.
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.
