Default Original Sphere with Lipo battery ?

Hi.

Here is my question : Does the Sphere work with Lipo battery (Team Orion 4800 lipo battery for example) ?

Thanks for the answer.

Cheers.

The lrp Sphere does not have the Li-poly shut off..
However
The soon to be release Competition version of the Sphere does have the feature...

Default heat tape

Make sure you use the heat tape , its designed to transfer heat to the sink.

Hard wiring will be more betta ,less resistant.....

Any news on the release dates for Sphere Competition and 4-Star motor ?

I saw Team drivers race those last weekend and finally brushless are even with anything that got brushes..

I'm looking forward of getting this combo.

We were shipping first production batch to distributers last week and this week, so expect to see them "popping up" in hobbyshops around the world now.
I heard that Juho and Christer did well at the weekend.

Juho and Crister did great, finished 2nd and 3rd.

For what I heard they had no problems with electronics during weekend.

Only Teemu Leino was able to beat the brushless power

Hope you did send some units to our country as well

Well I'm happy to report that I finally got to run my Sphere and Neo-One combo on my T4 at an Off-Road Race this past weekend. After having to send back my original Sphere to Associated (fetts blew for some apparent reason after barely running half a pack!?! ), AE was kind enough to send me a brand new one which I must say at least won back part of my confidence in LRP products. Anyway the Sphere is very smooth with regards to throttle response which is quite nice. I even won with it during the 1st heat of the Stadium Truck class and finished 2nd overall. I'm very pleased with it so far and just hope that this time it remains as reliable as my Novak GTBs have been.

Good to hear that the Sphere Competition ESC will also include a Cap.... something I strongly believe the original Sphere should have also had as I am sure it would have solved a LOT of it's earlier problems!
