Vortex 285 vs. 250 Pro Comparison

The Vortex 285, and the new 250-Pro are quite different quads. The 285 has the advantage of foldability, making it ideal for transport, and building into compact flight-cases.

The 250 Pro has the advantage of a more powerful processor, higher-current ESCs, and some larger (and heavier) motors.
