Dude,
You're not effing kidding. The problem with this new high price standard is that now the bar for what's considered low cost has been raised. Oh if Orion is selling for $485, which they will, then we can list our "budget" Esc at $199. It's a steal compared to the race spec version! LOL SMH.

I am sure Orion is justifying the cost because of the free app download. The R10.1 when it came out was $230.00 and the program box was another $100.00+ purchase.

Yes but I run 4 10.1's and only need 1 program box. No way I am purchasing 4 at $400 each. There's just too many good options now for speed controls (Maclan, Muchmore, Reedy, Hobbywing, etc). I could see an extra $50-75 increase for new technology......but almost double? No thanks. Orion has lost me as a customer.
