Iím all for new technology, and it looks very interesting. But you think your car is unbalanced now with a lipo and wont make weight... wait till you get one of those.

omfg!

i can't believe this thread is actually as long as it is. our hobby is on the trailing edge of technology...

our transmitters use *new* technology that's been around since the cordless phone was invented.

our batteries use *new* technology that's been powering laptops, cell phones, and power tools for years.

our motors use *new* technology that's been in pretty much any rotating AC powered device ever.

we even use *new* advanced materials like aluminum and carbon fiber.

Actually this device is just a marketing ploy to spread their name and interest in their other products. It's worked well.
