You could get problems with glitching and your PT
Using the cap on the LRP, like the Novak has, eliminates all so called problems!

I've used both and liked both except when i got Ko digital servos - tried the cap on the LRP, tried a bug booster between the PT and the ESC, tried everything but still glitched. I've since sold the LRP and only run Novak.

QC2's a great ESC but get the gtx if you're running a KO 6v digital servo or wait for the QC3.

Neither I have had both and tried them back to back even with a VFS-1, the best speedo I have found is an international company over in the UK, called MRT (Model Racing Technology).
Looking at the specs of all speedo's they have the lowest resistance and profiles to suit all classes with a very small blueprint, you get one of these babies and speed will never be an issue

That's not true.

Even with a big cap you will have problems with the powerfull servo's.

The LRP BEC can not deliver the power that's necessaryfor today's high speed en high amp consumption servo's.

I have test it myself with a kopropo servo. When the servo has to do some work the voltage is serieusly going down, while my old cycloon has no problem with it.

I've seen KO servos have power draw issues with many, not just LRP, ESC's though.

I personally am totally pleased with the QC2 but them again, I don't use a KO servo.

Funny, Lrp installs the same Bic design as the Novak...

The GT7 is this good. Good for beginners. Mainly the diff is that the GT7 is bigger and specs not as good as the GTX. But don't think you'll much of a difference in performance at our level.


Back to topic ! The GTX is my pick. At one time I had both. And I sold the blue one away.
