Doubt it. Technically the pro has lower resistance, but we are down to less resistance than solder joints or the pcb traces with the new amazing fet technology.

The RS is thinner, but the same footprint and has the exact same features and software. We expect the RS to be the most popular and the RS stock to be the value option. The Rspro is for Mod TC and 4wd offroad. We even use it in 1/8 scales with 4slipo! The same is true with our Fx and Fxpro and yet everyone buys the Pro version. Honestly we think we made a marketing mistake calling one a pro when they are all pro features and performance. We do not make a stripped down version of anything, even the mini B1 units have all the same features.

Will the RS run without sensor wires?

Not giving any official dates until they are in hand and ready. Too easy for one small oops or misloaded component to cause a delay and a lot of tedious and slow rework on the first production run. We have already been down that path and taken the beating. We are building them now and if all continues to go well it will be weeks not months. Maybe even next week for some. First production run of motors is due here the middle of June.

Yes the RS is sensorless or sensored. It automatically recognizes the sensor plug if plugged in. It also automatically recognizes if a sensor goes bad or the plug comes out during a race and rolls to sensorless seamlessly. It will operate in sensorless mode, dual mode with sensored starts and sensorless run or sensored only mode.

One of my favorite features is the sensor check leds. We light the top 3 leds in real time with the sensors. You can roll the motor slowly and see that all the sensors are working properly. Started as an engineering debug, but it was so cool we left it in the unit. Some of the advantages if having 7 leds and an overkill micro is that we can display a lot of information including heat, radio signals and error codes.

I guess my next question will be the dimensions and how much does it weight?

Absolutely! We just spent the last few weeks hammering it with 4cell and a 3.5 BL in a 1/10 TC. The low voltage operation I am proud to say is fantastic. It delivers full power with even marginal batteries, or at least all the battery can deliver. It will even crawl home on a dead battery with no hesitations or stutters. Oval or 1/12 scale is not a problem and may be where it really shines.

The RSpro and R1pro have a high power fwd only and a fwd/rev brushed mode. In fwd only it is our highest rated controller at 624 amps nominal, crazy! In fwd/rev it is the same as our FxRpro at 208 amps nominal.

Same size and wt as the R1pro. 1.3" x 1" x .68" , 1oz/ 27g without wires.

congratulations on really banging out some fantastic new products as of late. these, like your other recent products look like real winners. some serious innovation here with packing all those USABLE and RELEVANT features into such a small package there.. now we just need to see a lipo charger? man i miss my bc112a that thing was a tank like my G12CIII (which i still use). looks like i need to start saving up..

with fxR Pro I'm very happy hopefully I'll switch to brushless scene with RS if it doesn't let stock 13.5 racers down like R1

I still use my 112 Don't have any LiPos yet but was considering getting the Losi charge adapter so I could use my 112 to charge LiPos for my airsoft rifle.

What do you mean by letting down the 13.5 stock racers with the r1? It didn't perform well or the release date delays?
