They have had two of mine since September 17. Went back and forth with them the other day. Said they had way to many escs turned in and not enough boards. When the new ones show up they said they would only do one per customer and I would get my other one done eventually.... complete BS. I almost sent all four of mine in because they said two weeks.... I then found out that the ones running on 1S are ok and the upgrade would require a rx pack....

Yeah, good point about the profiles. It does include a faster processor than the old board, for whatever that's worth. I'm curious, though, if it's ROAR legal with this upgrade. I didn't see it on the list last I checked.

Here's some more info from LRP.

That said, goodbye sad old SXX. Hello hot new FLOW!

Tower has it pushed out to mid-Nov now.

I ordered mine from rcMart and have it installed in my car and ready for use tonight. On the bench, at least, I'm really impressed with it so far. The new solder tabs are a winner. That's a very excellent solution without going to posts which apparently introduce a lot of resistance according to LRP.

I will say, though, that LRP is getting spanked by their competition when it comes to build quality. The aluminum portion of the case including the heat sink are pretty cheap looking. Companies like Orca and Hobbywing are media blasting (or something) their aluminum where LRP is just the plain old machined aluminum. Also, the packaging is terrible, and in fact one of my heat sink fins was slightly bent because the ESC was crammed into a box that's too small.

I realize these things don't matter on the track, but a lot of people care about presentation, and that's one area where LRP is falling behind. Have a look at your main competitors and see how they're stepping up their game, and making you feel a bit better about dropping $200+ on yet another ESC.

Ran the Flow last night in 13.5 blinky sedan. It's flawless. Everything you've come to expect from LRP's perfect feel, brakes, etc. It finally feels like an ESC I can install and forget about. No programming boxes, brake or throttle frequencies and other distractions. Just pure, smooth power and great brakes.
