Full carbon fiber monocoque, quick swap arms, solder-free repairs, ready to fly as 240 size fpv racer, for 5" props. But it doesn't stop there! Sporting the brand new TBS Triumph Antenna in combination with the TBS CORE Pro OSD and TBS Unify Pro VTX, the TBS Vendetta allows you to configure every parameter of your FPV racer via R/C stick commands! Each drone comes tuned and test-flown by our professional tuning expert, Magnus. Install a receiver, strap on a 4S battery and the TBS VENDETTA will tear a hole into the sky, and you're coming along for the ride!

TBS Vendetta - FPV RACER (2 min 40 sec)


Carbon fiber all the way

All structural parts on the TBS VENDETTA are made out of custom-made carbon fiber layup. The arms are made from flat 3.5mm thick carbon fiber plates, machined to precise standards on a 4-axis CNC machine, fully chamfered to prevent delamination. The body is a pure work of art, which starts its life as a hand molded tubular 2mm carbon fiber master. It is trimmed down by a 4-axis CNC machine to save weight. Smooth and rounded edges in the CNC cuts are our way of showing off. The matte finish is sand blasted, because attention to detail requires it.
Tight integration, modular design

The entire FPV racer is built around the idea of countless self-contained parts working together hand in hand for a unified user experience. Starting from the TBS ZeroZero FPV camera, to the TBS POWERCUBE and TBS CORE PRO, everything is repairable without a soldering iron, and with just two tools. This does not prevent you from configuring all tuning parameters via the built-in OSD, to changing VTx channels or power levels.
From box to air: 5 minutes

The TBS VENDETTA comes pre-tuned, and the R/C Calibration Wizard takes you through the setup steps. Just strap in a R/C receiver, tune your goggles to BOSCAM A CH1, and start setting up your controls (both R/C receiver, goggles and FPV video receivers are sold separately). The arms arrive in detached state to allow quick access to the R/C receiver bay the first time.
Built to grow

From the structural rigidity to the over-powered ESCs, everything has been developed with your progress as a pilot in mind. A step to 6S with bigger motors to gain ridiculous power-to-weight ratios, custom arms for higher efficiency motors and props, or simply a different motor setup to suit your tastes are easily possible, thanks to the MT30 connectors and the quick swap arms. You can even carry different pairs of arms with unique motor and props combos installed for every occasion, and mount what you fancy!

Dates and Predictions

This thing looks amazing. Almost wishing I had waited instead of getting the IRC Vortex 250 Pro. These two are very comparable - tightly integrated FC + OSD RTF, same price too,

I like it!

I've been asking this question of several existing Vortex users and the answer, I am extremely happy to say, is YES!

I assume it works like MultiWiiOSD, where the OSD sends commands to the FC to change settings. The catch is, that if Boris makes changes that affect the commands, the TBS OSD might not be able to properly affect the change in the FC. So if there is a major change to BF, we might have to wait until TBS updates the OSD firmware befor we could adjust BF in the OSD.
This is all conjecture, though

The above situation is the case with MultiWiiOSD - I was adjusting PID via OSD on CF 1.8 but when I updated the FC to CF 1.9, the PID changes in OSD didn't work anymore. I could make the changes in OSD, but they wouldn't save to the FC. Needed to update MWOSD to fix the issue

Is this RTF no messing with the software etc? Just charge the batt and go? Looks tempting.

Their lack of actual pictures vs renderings is a little concerning but this think looks incredible!
