ImmersionRC Vortex 150

Radio RX:
Attention: EU-LBT Firmware - had to flash the receivers FW to nonEU
this video was helpful with the cabling: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sHHmNhYlGJs&t=428s
Once the binding suceeded (Taranis - XSR with D16 C1-16 mode)
I just turned on my FPV monitor and instantly saw the TX wizard on the vortex. This is what I already loved on the Vortex250!
Setting up the sticks was so easy - no need for a PC with cleanflight config software.
OSD looks quite similar to the Vortex250

VTX Power:
1-600mw? ce version is locked to 25mw (rumors say you can unlock it?)
Low 25 200 350 max

Battery: 850mah 4cell
Flighttimes: around 3-5mins (depending on throttle and battery of course)
Connectors: the mini Vortex uses XT30 connectors! (I resoldered a XT60 on so I could use the batteries connectors without resoldering all of them).

no bullnose, HQ 3x3x3, racekraft 3x3x3, or not as good the gemfan 3x3.5x3
all those in 4 blade should work also

S800 Reptile

Finally I have a working flyingwing for FPV in 2017! Multicopters kept me so busy and were so convenient last year that I didnt enjoy the pure joy of fixedwing aviation. Really looking forward to do so soon!
