Just want to give an update to some new Authorized ORCA dealers in the US. These are shops that are selling the ORCA products here in the US now. Any other shops interested in carrying the line can contact me as well.

Awesomeatix USA (Mike Hanulec).
Superior Hobbies, Orlando FL
Osmon Racing products. California.
Middle River Hobbies. Maryland.
Team EAM. Tennessee.

There are several others in the process of setting up accounts and getting the products in stock.

Thanks!

EA

yes. please email EA for the instructions on shipping back.

i'm happy to be on board with a great product. a lot of racers had speedo issues with other brand equipment at the ROAR Nats last weekend. the ORCA runners where pretty much trouble free.

Only ones bought in the US can be repaired at the repair facility here under warranty. It is in Canada. You have to pay shipping there and they cover it back if its under warranty. Most repairs equal an exchange but the turn around time is very very good.

Of all the ones Ive sold since IIC only 3 have had to go back that I know of. Thats not a bad ratio at all! 2 were self inflicted and one was not.

I would agree that's not half bad at all.

Is anyone going to be stocking ORCA batteries soon? I know the 6000mah 80c Race packs are awesome. Plus I like the ability to flip the battery to run negative or positive either way so you don't have to re-wire your esc.

Hi - I don't have all of the details. From what I understand the new motors are much lighter than the currently shipping motors. The limited release of modified motors appeared to work very well. They needed to go in for a minor redesign so the stators could be easily measured as per ROAR's specifications.

ETA - unknown by me.

Thanks, I need a new motor but also need it roar approved so I can use it in sanctioned events. Not sure whether to just get the rx2 or the TX roar spec one.

Ran my orca packs today. 6000 in mod and 7000 in stock. I could not be more pleased with them as far as performance goes!! Very punchy in stock with no drop off at all. Speed controller actually ran cooler in both classes and my mod batteries did not get near as warm as my reedys do. I do not like the 5mm bullets as I had too resolder both of my orca speedos battery cables and I had to remake both of my charge cables, but beyond that perfect!! I'm really looking forward to the new tx motors becoming roar approved.

the whole reason those packs are so good is because of the 5mm bullets. change happens....
