Well... I think it looks great! Considering this quad more and more! (pondering between the QQ190 and this one)
Did watch the video but I don't notice the vibration that much?
But if there is and they couldn't even fix that for the promotion video there can be a serious problem indeed.
Do you think it maybe has a design flaw?

(I fly the Vortex 150 and although I like it a lot, it has some vibrations I do notice at times, which I think maybe can be fixed by better PID settings, but not sure about that)

In the beginning of the video there are none, later on there are a few but I guess it could also be, bent props from crash or something like that,
when it's new it's all good, once you crash a little bit things change, move, motors aren't smooth anymore etc..

True, lots of factors that can play a role there.

Biggest question for now I have is if the VTX power will be restricted to max 25mW for the Vortex 230 versions which are gonna be distributed here in Europe. I have the Vortex 150 (international version) which should have VTX power to be set from 1mW -> 600mW but they still restricted that to max 25mW probably because of European law here. I think they should mention that in the specs advertized but they don't. If it's the same for Vortex 230 then I'm not interested. So waiting first for reviews here in Europe before I order.

If you order from banggood I think you'll get the International version, they write National which I think it means International.

The TrampHV VTX configuration using Taranis Radio is so common by now for over a year, I just wonder if there will be a mod
where you could use that feature to tune the VTX using the Radio LUA script menu

I wrote a guide about it a while back so it's really a basic feature now..

All these post seem nothing but worries or 'what ifs' with the Mojo.

I have one and is it's awesome! My flying isn't good enough to always carry a Gopro but the few times i have i see no vibration or Jello. the fpv cam might be a bit lacking compared to say a current Runcam or the like but easily swapped.

And why are you all shopping at Banggood for EU? plenty of stores carrying the international version if you take to Google and shop around.

It's seems like not many FPV pilots bought this racer, I wonder if it is the end of RTF platforms, previous models were a success
