Vortex quads will ship with a plastic crash-kit, VX4CK1 free in the box.
Due to the nature of mini-quad racing, it is highly advisable to purchase an additional plastic crash-kit, or the carbon crash-kit, VX4CK2.
An aluminium rigid-arm mounting kit will be available shortly after launch. This gives up the foldability, but does provide more durability for certain kinds of crashes.
