ImmersionRC – Vortex

We’re liking the direction change ESC a lot!

– You can tell the ESC you want the motors to be clockwise or counter clockwise just by spinning it, beep and spin it in the direction you want. Done. It now spins in the direction you want.

– Built into the arms for clean look, the bad if of course, you may only be able to get parts from ImmersionRC.

– Will like the arms to fold inwards for all 4 arms to the sides of the frame and not like Alien style fold where all arms goes back in one direction. Into the frame kind of fold will allow the whole quad to be smaller when folded.

– The mobius/ Gopro anti vibration/ jello mount looks really nice.

 

 

RCX GF223 Build

This is one fun build by The Mrs. She took her time and meticuliously tidied up the cables. The difference between men building a quad in the team and women building it.

Men in the team are untidy and get it to fly first then worry about the looks of it. Women seems want to build it tidy from the get-go hahah
