We all know how great the vortex series from immersionRC was so its great to see that they have now released a new micro version at 150mm.

It is cute… very cute… and pure-fun.
It is the perfect quad to introduce new pilots to the mini-quad craze, no soldering required. It is also the perfect quad for the pro pilots to hide in the corner of their backpack to fly in areas were a 250 is far too big.

The feature list is long… integrated Tramp, TNR tag, integrated microphone, pit-mode, DSMX Tx control, Multishot, 8kHz SPI gyro, Betaflight 3.0… to name just a few.
