Race Ready 250-Class FPV Quad for the Experienced Pilot
The Blade® brand and ImmersionRC have teamed up to deliver the cutting-edge Vortex 250 Pro multirotor with Spektrum™
technology. ProTuned for FPV racing, now pilots who want next-level performance can enjoy Bind-N-Fly® convenience.
ImmersionRC introduced the original Vortex ARF when the FPV racing phenomena began. Now race seasoned experts
across the globe have weighed in on how their powerpacked little quad could be improved. Lighter, stronger and
more powerful, the Blade® Vortex 250 Pro is the next-level ImmersionRC 250-class racer with the benefits of
Bind-N-Fly® so you can FPV race like a pro, right out of the box.
The Blade® Vortex 250 Pro FPV quadcopter is clean, strong and extremely robust that's fully integrated, tuned
and equipped so you can be competitive in a matter of minutes. Just some of the goodies include a custom power
system, cutting-edge 32-bit processing power and full-graphic jet fighter inspired OSD. Plus, there's even a
programmable LED system you can customize to flash at the competition when it's time to eat your dust. Everything
about this race-proven design is about one thing - speed. That's why the custom power system features high-speed
motors and ESCs with OneShot protocol and regenerative braking. Plus you have the option of running either your
3S or 4S Li-Po battery. Fun, functional and future-proof, the Vortex 250 Pro is your key to crossing the finish
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-quads 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 quad and one ARM for each of the four custom high performance
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 aluminum stand-off
members complement the structure. Carbon fiber 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-ofthe-
box control feel that seems almost intuitive. Plus, the software is
future-proof with supporting updates easily uploaded via the robust USB
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
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-fiber plate that's vibration dampened. Its adjustable bracket
makes it possible to set the camera tilt for the forward view that suits
The preloaded firmware has been ProTuned to make this quad 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.
Bright LEDs and Lost Model Alarm
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.
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.
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 maneuvering. 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 bluntnose
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 stabilization need simple.
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-center
alerts for critical warnings such as battery voltage, EzUHF Link Critical
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.
