The Pocket Rocket. There couldn’t be a better name for this little drone from ImmersionRC. The Vortex 150 Mini Racing Quadcopter is built for speed with 1306-3100kv motors, 3rd Gen 16A EzESCs (with OneShot125, OneShot42, MultiShot, rotorSENSE support) and 3” tri-blade propellers.
The Vortex 150 Racing Quadcopter comes almost ready to fly with just the addition of a radio transmitter, battery, receiver and FPV goggles or monitor set-up to get you going. It’s built on all the great goodies that it’s bigger relatives use plus a few new ones. The new Synergy Flight controller adds the Fusion2 FC (with OSD) and the Tramp HV video transmitter (40ch) integrated into the one lightweight (6.41g) package. Dynamic Power Control keeps the power use down while in the pits and brings it up to full level when you need it. This keeps temperatures and power usage down when you don’t need it. The on-board, full graphic OSD not only provides in-flight parameters, it now sports a menu to set up your controller in the field using your flight controller and goggles or monitor (without the need for a laptop). Setup using either preprogrammed setups or build your own. There are also several pre-programed OSD layouts that can be used. Look like a HUD of a fighter jet or a race layout with the data around the edges.
The new Integrated Touch’n’Race (NFC) system allows for easy change of video transmitter power and frequency without the need to touch the Pocket Rocket. Makes setting up your VTX a breeze. Great for using at your next race meet. (TNR Race Wand sold separately).
To jazz things up the rear RGB LEDs come with a light-pipe diffuser to ensure everyone can see them. Just in case of a crash there is also the lost model beeper to help you find your downed drone.
The Pocket Rocket can fly anywhere so get out there.

This quad is great and I would recommend it to anyone looking to get into multi rotors , super easy to setup and get flying fast with the inbuilt OSD and the tune on this thing is awesome. Im using Turnigy Graphine 4s 850mah 65c with great results.
Great quad! Amazing to see how small it is! I'm using mine with bolt 4s 850mah and pulse 850 and 650mah. CCD cam got good settings as is. The frsky xsr fit perfect inside...
