Default what's up with fantom racing???

Hey all: Was on the fantom site recently and want to know a few things about them. First looks like they have taken brushless/lipo and ran with it because it looks like that's all they are offering now. Is this a trend in the rc industry or do brushed motors and nimh batteries still have there place in the rc industry? Also who are they getting their brusless/lipo products from and are they doing their owne in house tuning on them or just offering them as is? Finally with most of the rc motor and battery companies going brushless/lipo will we see a big drop in their prices because even though they last a lot longer than the older brushed/nimh technology which makes them more economical in the long run the up front coast is still rather high? Thanks for the info

Yeah I saw that too. I think 4 cell racing was keeping NimH alive. Now that single cell lipo is on the rise it's just a matter of time before everything will be lipo.
