Seems like you will get away with the LRP Sport for Stock 27T and 19T classes. Thinking back...a comm lathe was pretty early on my to-buy list.

there's nothing wrong with the Ko servo. the entire problem is the LRP speedo. Everyone that had that problem out this way hooked their equipment up to two different speedo's (keyence & Tekin) and had no problems what so ever.

Axel: I was thinking about something like a VFS-1 but then again, those are just more adjustments that I can screw-up messing with them

I'd go with a GTX or wait for a GTB But get the comm lathe first bro

There is likely nothing wrong with either the KO or QC2 or Spektrum. They just didn't work right (for me) when all together.

i have a mate who has two vfs1 pros and they overheat on him. i don't know if he is a mong or what but the gtx is just as small, has a heatsink, cap installed also and needs no comp to program and doesn't overheat from what i heard from users.

go gtx

I like my LRP QC2 but the BEC issue with KO servo's really sucks. now im running a S9550 with it. just got a GTX, have yet to try it out I should imagine its an awesome ESC! i love the capacitor it comes with too

hard to beat the little keyence box that scrolls out "hello" each time you switch it on plus you get to read voltage and temperature too my vote goes for lrp v7.1 for outright robustness but a tad big

With all of these new eletrical devices we have nowadays somethings gonna have a glitch or two. If you still have your spektrum bring all of your stuff with you to speedworld and let's try hooking it up to my electronics. No matter what we will have some fun this weekend.
