its a freakin merry go around, towerhobbies says return to lrp, lrp says they dont do firmware updates, reto says dont send to him for 'custom issues'.

WE HAVE ALL BEEN SCREWED BY LRP HAHA!

I'm just going to take this as a loss and not buy another lrp product again. In fact, not going to buy anything AE while I'm at it.

LRP have found a way to transform the 3,7V going into the ESC to 6V going into the RX, dont know how but it should work fine.

http://67.199.85.166/resources/resou...e=warranty_lrp

thats only if you purchased in the US.

I'm sending mine back too, they finally acknowledged the mk3. I dont know why people say there is a firmware update because from what AE told me, they replace them with new speedies. Hope they have the problems sorted out with the mk3.

hope they cover the return postage!

Default What a joke

Shame LRP Shame, 9 mins running in total, a 6 min run and then 3 mins into the next run, bad clogging, I have run LRP for a long time but this is a joke.

Will have to send it back, LRP should have a world wide recall on this speedy.

What a stuff up.

I hope they don't have to go to MK6 before they realize: sell something like hotwire or loose massive money sending back and forth, and hey it's another product to sell, that means $$ coming IN
