You mean XT60?

This is more an Immersion product than a Blade it seems. It's just a shrunk-down Vortex Pro essentially. I'm interested to see what motor they select with this. Immersion only finally got the motor right for the Pro after everyone started replacing the stock ones with Lumenier 2206 2300kV ones. Those motors make the Vortex Pro a freaking beast.

The Vortex OSD and pro-tunes make this thing an excellent BNF contender.

I imagine the Blade version will be that much easier to fly out of the box, especially for peeps who already have a Spektrum DSMX transmitter. Definitely a great way to start flying FPV quads. Practice with an Inductrix FPV at home, then with the Vortex 150 at the park or field.

On another note, recommended LiPo is a 4S 500mAh. That 150mm frame with all the fairings is going to be heavier than something like the RotorX Atom V2. So the easy availability of 3S LiPos had to be sacrificed.

Edit: Motors are 1304!! Not 1306 or 1105.

Been waiting for a smaller vortex and excited to see what comes of this. Two questions though:
- Can someone confirm the '700TVL CMOS' in the specs? I thought I saw someone on facebook mention that was not the correct camera.

- IS anyone else worried about the backmounted SMA connector? Looks like an easy break off point (i.e. the Eachine Blade 185 which had several people break off their sma conntector)

I want to love this and buy but...
-the SMS should be recessed so a ziptie can be used on the antennae side as per current best practice
-motors seem too small for the weight
-i would deff run an 800-850 4s for any 150. 500 is a short flight with real power like.
-i already have a sick shrieker

Very nice though and I am still considering it for my son (and I)

Vortex 150!


Had to order one. I've been waiting for a smaller Vortex. Love my 250 Pro. Doesn't look like much room for GoPro. Maybe no room but that's OK with me. I just like to fly. I do DVR all my flights so I can find my quad when I land unexpectedly.
