Default Difference

The difference besides the name version is the wiring that is included. The Pro version comes with wiring that you will have to do yourself. The J version comes pre-wired with connectors (Tamiya style). The BEC system is the same, because now you can set your own BEC voltage level.

Robert when do you expect them to be in stock? I might go ahead and put 2 or 3 on preorder.

Thanks
