Not sure if it matters or not but the wire colors from the speedo to the switch look to be brown, red, orange....classic JR colors Wonder if that is a hint.

No doubt, even companies with lots of BL engineering history seem deeply inspired by Novak's design. :-)

But if it's smaller...

Same with the DX3 and DX2 which are based off the XR3i and XR2i. Spectrum servos even use the same numbers as their JR counterparts. So it is a good possibility that it might be released under the spectrum or JR line.

Ah, very cool, thanks for the info. I apologize for my ignorance, as I've been out of the brushed racing loop for a while, but what's JR's ESC offering like, if any?

RC411 and RCDriftClub pulled the article. And the part where they said "we know more, but aren't telling."

I stand corrected. Ok so now when will we see Associated with LRP BL stuff in there RTR's? With the new cheaper AI Bl's there's no reason AE couldnt do it.

Is that ugly blue thing off to the right the capacitor? Good god man!

That means they chose to "Novak" on us and make a really small esc and add a really large cap!? That really doesn't make it small in my opinion, more like a two piece esc!

Looks awful Novakish though.....Horizon is getting awful greedy with a lot of things right now and this would not surprise me to see them OE out a system, wrap in a spektrum package and sell it.

VERY interesting, kinda surprised Novak (Steve) has said its nothing to do with them, especially after the Novak XRS-for-Losi is coming out, with the same blue translucent case.

Wouldnt Novak hold the patent on this design to keep it from being copied like this? (if it is). I'd feel better if Charlie jumped in here, I'd like it to come from the top, no offense.
Just because the engineering dept, doesnt know anything about it doesnt mean there wasnt some sort of information sharing somewhere with losi since they already use novak in some RTR's. You would think bringing out your own BL system along with using the worlds most widely recognized name in the industry would ruffle a few feathers, and might burn bridges.
