Default Vortex prototype? Can't figure out how to mount it!







Sorry for the cruel joke guys.

I noticed the name on one of my boy's Nerf guns and instantly thought of the VX1.

by the way, do you guys think it will be possible to keep using my quark and buy the main module only? if so, I will, eventually, be FBL...

No, the Vortex sensor is different to the Quark.

No the spartan is a single axis gyro... It can only detect rotation in the yaw axis. In order to be able to work as a FBL controller it has to be able to detect in roll and pitch as well, hence why you see the term 3 axis gyro thrown around with FBL controllers.

yes of course I aready know that the quark is a single axis gyro... I use one every day...and I know the vortex is a FBL 3 axis system.

but I was assuming there could be some sort of compatibility between the vortex main module and the spartan quark as I saw this picture somewhere, then I was thinking "cool i can keep using my quark and buy a vortex main module without having to buy the yaw axis extension!" :

The sensor case might be the same but the internals are surely different. I can see where you were coming from though.

The problem is that the photo was reused on other websites out of context. When I shared it on a helifreak thread it was just meant to show people how the system looks like. At the time the production materials had not yet arrived. On the control box I stuck a piece of laser printed paper; with the sensor I got lazy and used a Quark label.

You under estimated how eager everyone was for news on the Vortex Angelos... lol.

Koyangi - Sorry for underestimating your understanding, I see why you thought what you did.

Inverse - Indeed lol. I need to sleep more, missed out the quarky bit.
