Default new distributor for team orion

Hey all: With horizon hobby now the new north and south america distributor for team orion products do you think many of the losi drivers in both nitro and electric will be switching over to team orion since horizon hobby now owns both? Thanks

Team Orion hasn't changed ownership, their products are simply going to be distributed by Horizon in the Americas.

Horizon is now distributing Orion. Not Kyosho. Kyosho owns Orion. They gave distributorship of Orion to Horizon in the Americas. Kyosho is not going to be distributed by Horizon. Just Orion.

Kyosho wants to distribute all on their own. When Kyosho pulled away from Great Planes they went on their own.

Yes, Horizon owns Losi, Athearn and E-flite.

From what I hearing the Team Orion guys will be running Peak stuff now. It gives Kyosho/Orion 2 ways of getting there stuff in the marketplace if this holds true. Time will tell. Team Kyosho/Peak Team Losi/Orion.
