Bloody hell! What a way to put a finger in every pie! Hopefully Kyosho stuff will get cheaper.

I have many Orion products and have always found them to be well thought out, dependable, reasonable in price and backed with great customer service in the US. I hope this will not change any of the items I listed above.

You will still see all the great benefits of running Team Orion product.

As long as Orion stays dedicated to the LiPo's, then I really don't care who buys who.

I just hope this doesn't change anything regarding availability or quality. I tried running Kyosho this season, worst mistake in my career.

To answer both above questions above. Kyosho is very committed to our LiPo program and by us joining Kyosho it will further give us the power to expand it further and give us the ability to move things forward at a much better pace.

And now LiPo development has a 500lb gorilla in the room. Hard not to be noticed with a heavyweight in your corner.



Booyah!

But LiPo is bad! It won't fit in my dad's brother's original RC10T, and until the LiPo companies make a battery to fit every chassis ever created, I don't think they should be used.

Is it safe to remove the plastic case, and beat the lipo into my car? I thought it could me molded into whatever shape I need to fit my 1982 Tamiya sand scortcher. Man there's just no consistancy...... JK.
