    Bad LED board Vortex 285 only 2 weeks old.

    I purchased a 285 a couple weeks ago and the LED board has already quit. I don't race just normal flight. Spoke to seller and was told that they don't carry the LED boards so I would have to contact ImmersionRC. Please help. First IRC product and not impressed.

    Bad LED board Vortex 285 only 2 weeks old.

    Many items on this here. Board very flakey and can be bought on line but you need to be good at soldering. If it flies all is well, board not behaving does not affect flying.

    Soldering is definitely not a problem. I was a radio repairman in the army for 7 years. The board is definitely a design issue and as such should be covered under warranty. I know I can buy them but believe IRC should make good on it. I know it does not effect flying...except I like to fly LOS and it's nice to know where the back of the thing is. As it is right now there is no light at all. Then of course you deal with not being able to change camera channel without it.

    Good luck, mine crapped out with just normal flying no big crashes etc. I ended up replacing and it has been good ever since. Go figure.
