Product Information

Spartan Vortex VX1n


Designed for 3D Pro pilots and beginner alike the Vortex VX1 and VX1n will amaze you with their performance, features and intuitive installation.


Tail - Based on Spartan's market leading gyro technology the Vortex is capable of delivering exceptional tail hold and consistent yaw rates even at eye-blurring speeds of over three full turns per second.
Rotor - The cyclic and collective controls are smooth and precise with a very solid feel and impressive response time. Factory calibrated sensors and Spartan's proprietary piro compensation technology enable your helicopter to remain locked in through piro moves.
Governor - The built in governor provides Nitro and Electric* modes and support for both magnetic and phase sensors. Cross mixing and look-ahead algorithms ensure that power is delivered in time and not as a result of RPM decay.
Receiver - The Vortex supports SBUS & PPM single wire receiver connections, 1 or 2 Satellites and individual channel connections to traditional receivers. Additional channels provided by SBUS, PPM & Satellite receivers can be routed to the three AUX outputs.
Setup - Using the Spartan DataPod field programmer your new Vortex can be installed and configured in minutes. Adjustments can also be done at the field without the need to carry a computer. The DataPod also doubles as USB interface enabling the Vortex to receive firmware updates.
Power - The Vortex operates at both classic 5V and high voltage 8.4V (2S) power systems. The DataPod port of the Vortex also doubles as secondary power connection point when additional current is needed for high torque servos.
The easy setup, high vibration immunity, and unparalleled performance are guaranteed to give a hassle free installation and enjoyment of your hobby. Backed up with Spartan's industry-leading warranty and including 3 years free repair service and 50% RRP discounted crash replacements (redeemed @ SpartanRC directly) the Vortex offers market leading performance, exceptional value and reassurance.

Key features:

  • Designed for all helicopters; from the smallest electric to the largest nitro
  • Market leading tail hold and pirouetting consistency
  • Small and lightweight
  • Compatible with all digital tail servos (760us, 960us and 1520us)
  • Compatible with digital and analog swash servos
  • Compatible with standard pulse, PPM, SBUS and 1 or 2 satellite receivers
  • Built in governor with Nitro and Electric* modes
  • Superior balanced ring MEMS sensor technology
  • Easy configuration and field adjustments via the Spartan DataPod. You can deploy a new system in minutes
  • Firmware upgradable
  • Four configuration memories that can be selected in-flight for different flying styles. They can be mapped to Normal, Idle1, Idle2 & Hold or as the user requires
A DataPod is required for configuring the Vortex. One DataPod is sufficient for configuring all your Vortex systems as it does not need to be permanently mounted on the helicopter.
