I tried the old device and it did not work. I spent $40 on it and never got a single update for my SXX to use it.

Where is everyone mounting the capacitor? I have the flow mounted pretty far forward, and was going to mount the capacitor between the motor and esc. Thoughts?

I used the Nosram tool and lead but uploaded the LRP v5.0 update and worked fine.

I've uptaded my v2's using the LRP software, the bridge came in Nosram packaging but my computer picked it up as an LRM device... by that Logic you should be OK updating a NOSRAM with LRP software.

Any updates on Roar approval? Snowbirds is getting close and it has to be on the list to be a useable ESC.

Im running Orca and Flow. Both esc are great. Orca is just too smooth but Flow is my choice and works great for me.

Tried my flow this weekend, and it was amazing! Very noticeable difference over the Tekin RS, so much that I bought another flow to replace my other Tekin too

I take it your not running mod, so it's better than the RS in stock racing in boosted or blinky?

Last year it had to be on the list 30 days prior I believe. I am not sure about this year and when the cut off is/was. I'll email Boylan and ask about it. Im sure LRP is doing everything they can to get it submitted and approved though. Heard nothing but good things about it.
