Atlanta Hobby Unveils Revolutionary New Vortex Multi-Rotor UAV
New hexacopter offers unprecedented customization options, best-in-class flight time

(CUMMING, GA)— Atlanta Hobby launched the Vortex, one of the world’s most advanced hexacopters, this week. Designed and built in America through an innovative partnership with MN Aerospace, the Vortex offers best-in-class flight times, unprecedented performance, and a unique color customization system to allow professionals and hobbyists the opportunity to design a drone that fits their look as well as their needs. Mated with a 3-axis-stabilized gimbal and GoPro camera, the Vortex is a stable, long-flying aerial filming platform.

The Vortex is produced on aerospace-grade 3D printers, which produces a flight-ready airframe that is lighter but significantly stronger than traditional airframes. The Vortex incorporates the proven, powerful, and highly efficient DJI E600 series propulsion system. This gives the Vortex flight durations of over 25 minutes with payload, significantly longer than other production hexacopters. Each part can be constructed in several different colors for a wide array of design options, and custom colors are available for special orders, making the Vortex a perfect choice for universities or commercial clients.

The Vortex is also capable of mounting FLIR thermal imagers and is fully compatible with the DJI Lightbridge high-definition video downlink system and Ground Station waypoint-based autonomous flight system, making it a complete solution for most commercial or law enforcement / first responder applications. “The Vortex is clearly the most advanced small multi-rotor UAV on the market today,” Atlanta Hobby president Cliff Whitney stated. “This proves that American engineering can produce the best UAVs in the world.”
