- Mojo; that un-measurable quality that a well-balanced freestyle quad possesses.
Optimized for Freestyle by FinalGlide and GAPiT
The Vortex 230 Mojo has a center of gravity at the propeller level and a low moment of inertia thanks to the centralized mass. This gives a maximum authority to the flight controller thus giving crispy sharp stops or buttery smooth rolls. Featuring pro-tunes fine-tuned by none other than Chad Nowak/FinalGlideAus and Travis Samson/GAPiT you can fly like they do right out of the box (pilot skills not included, prior training required!).
The huge performance boost over the Vortex 250 Pro is thanks to modern BortherHobby Returner R3 2206 motors that are over 50% more powerful and the weight savings of close to 100 grams. The Vortex 230 Mojo will rival any modern day top mount freestyle quad.
Tested in 100% Pure Whale-Spit
A quad of this pedigree requires some pretty serious testing. One of our test pilots traveled to the other side of the planet, to a place that water actually spins the opposite direction when the bath is draining.
In this ‘Down Under’ location, the Mojo was tested in 100% pure whale-spit, ensuring that our conformal coating could really protect against these extreme conditions. Great news! It does!
You think we are kidding? Check out the video!
ImmersionRC’s Synergy Electronics
The new ImmersionRC ‘Synergy’ flight controller integrates a full-graphic OSD and an onboard video transmitter based on the new Tramp HV design sporting all the lushness the NFC support brings, including full Wand and Android App compatibility.
Twin F3 processors ensure an 8kHz loop time and full support of BetaFlight 3.x. hence crispy smoothness is guaranteed as is full support for future upgrades such as BF 3.2 (which will be available as soon as 3.2 is released).
Factory calibrated power levels from 1mW -> 600mW, glitch-free channel changing, and a micro-power pit-mode ensure that the Vortex 230 Mojo will receive a warm welcome at any race event.
The Synergy weighs in at a mere ~6.5 gram, and is of course conformally coated to protect against the occasional accidental swim or unexpected downpour.
Physical meets Virtual
ImmersionRC’s FPV Racing Simulator, Liftoff, has been used by many pilots to develop their skills without breaking a single prop.
Since its introduction the simulator has steadily increased it’s feature set, now including all of the Vortex airframes, many race environments (including the famous Dubai World Drone Prix circuit), and recently a fantastic multi-player mode.
Race against other pilots in multiplayer mode, create tracks with the track builder, and download tracks built by the community.
Following our long-standing tradition, the Vortex 230 Mojo will soon join it’s brothers in this simulator.
Best Vtx in the Business, Fully Integrated!
Fully integrated is the best Vtx in the business – ImmersionRC’s Tramp HV, which is the Tx that race organizers worldwide demand.
Support for all standard FPV channels and power levels, from sub-1mW to >600mW, with Dynamic Power Control which allows pre-take-off power level to drop to sub-1mW while waiting on the starting grid, saving precious battery power, and keeping temperatures low.
After landing the power level is also dropped to a minimum to preserve battery life and prevent heat buildup, important during a search to help with localization using a directional antenna.
Integrated Touch’n’Race (TNR)
This is a bit of ImmersionRC magic. Change video transmission frequency without powering up the quad. So no stomping on someone else’s channel.
Arrive at your local park (or that secret bando) and set video frequency, and transmitter power, with a wave of the magic wand (the TNR Mini Wand) or the Android App.
No DIP switches, no buttons, no confusing blinky LEDs, and no scripts to run on your Taranis. We couldn’t have made it much simpler.
DSMX Video Transmitter Control
Another first in the FPV world, ImmersionRC has teamed up with Horizon Hobbies to integrate video transmitter control into certain Spektrum(tm) radios.
Quads using this feature power up safely in pit-mode, and after finding a free channel on the video goggles, the menu on the Spektrum radio may be used to select frequency band, channel, and power level.
Lights! Music! Action!
Ok, there is no music, we’ll leave that to the post-processing, but there are lights, and plenty of action!
A set of RGB LEDs sit on the tail of the Vortex 230 Mojo shine through a light-pipe diffuser, ensuring visibility from a wide angle.
Since Airgonay’s now-famous ‘Star Wars’ video, rear lights on mini-quads have become not a ‘nice to have’, but a ‘no fun without ‘m’.
TPU Camera Mount!
The TPU camera mount for the Mojo is injected, no 3d printed parts here.
Designed for the popular GoPro(tm) Session, or similarly sized cameras, the mount ensures that your precious camera survives the occasional knock, and also keeps your video clean, and free of vibration.
* Will be available as an accessory in October 2017, immediately after the Mojo launches
‘Gen4’ 32bit 30A ESCs with DSHOT
Custom 32bit 30A ESCs supporting all of the common standards provide regenerative braking, for crisp-responsive flight using BetaFlight. A 32bit ARM processor runs each ESC, ensuring plenty of processing power to drive even the most fussy brushless motors.
Of course no ImmersionRC ESC would be complete without our innovative rotorSENSE, which programs prop direction with the flick of a finger. No more swapping motor wires.
Full Graphic OSD, with EzOSD pedigree
An on-board full-graphic OSD provides in-flight updates of critical parameters and sports a menu which allows all options to be programmed in the field using the R/C Tx and a set of goggles, or, alternatively, an LCD screen.
A real-time interface with the flight controller enables artificial horizons, F-18 HUD style displays and exchange of critical flight parameters.
Automatic warnings for battery capacity, voltage, and remaining flight time keep the pilot updated before batteries are exhausted.
Custom OSD Layouts
Several OSD layouts are included in the package:
- A classical EzOSD-type layout, with all critical parameters available on-screen.
- A Heads-Up display which would be more at home in a fighter-jet, with artificial horizon and altitude indicator.
- A Race layout, with just the critical parameters, tucked around the edges of the display.
All OSD layouts include screen-center alerts for critical warnings, such as battery voltage, EzUHF Link Critical, etc.
The 230 Mojo will ship – from day 1 – with a full array of pimp kits, all easily installed without the need to use a soldering iron.
If blood red is your thing, go for it, feeling patriotic, mix in a red and white kit. Want to fly like iMonFire, go for the yellow pimp kit, or be like Sander and go for stealthy black.
