Default LRP take us back to the future!

Now I was a bit surprised when browsing a shop website to see that LRP have released a NEW high end speedo...

Looks like a (very late) update on the 7.1, and I know a lot of people had a soft spot for this generation of speedos.

Anyone tried one yet.

PS any conspiracy theories are also welcome!

It looks like a step back but a step forward at the same time!

Does anyone know what happened to the Q3? I saw a few at the Worlds in Italy but as far as I know, it's never been released.

If they did or not, the V7.1 was the best and most solid esc I have ever been lucky enough to come by, so if I were to drive brushed motors now I'd buy one!
