You'd think after the cluster that was the D3.5 issues, and the new and improved clarity on testing and posting approvals on the ROAR forums... that they would actually use that new forum to post updated roar approvals and status.

This is going to be interesting to see how Nat's goes with that list.

That's the same list thats been up for a while. My orca VXX has been approved but not on the list yet. This sucks. I'm going to have to buy another new ESC for this race.

The sad thing is the ROAR representatives do not look at this thread or will they respond in this thread. Unless you email them directly or post in there own forum our complaints are going unnoticed.

I emailed the president and vice president earlier this week and have yet to get a reply.

Easy, guys. Everyone needs to keep in mind that all of the directors of ROAR have real jobs, families, etc., and serve ROAR on an uncompensated, voluntary basis. Things don't happen instantaneously.

Don't assume that they have the time to monitor all (or any) of the RCTech threads, either.

Also, one can't blame ROAR if a product hasn't ever been submitted for approval. Or, almost as bad, the manufacturer procrastinates for months, then expects a product to fly through the approval process in 30 days.

And no, I'm not referring to any particular product or manufacturer.

Honestly Howard if the EXCOM cant simply vote on an approval in a few days or even a week or two because they are too busy then they probably should not be in office to begin with.

The manufactures pay a lot of money to ROAR for approvals and having them completed in a timely manner is not a lot to ask of ROAR in my opinion.

You, on the other hand, have done a fantastic job since taking over as the Speedo testing department. The reports you sent were amazing to say the least and done is a super fast time frame as well.

Passing the electrical requirements is just one of the things that must happen to get approval, so it's not necessarily the voting process that might be holding things up. But I'm not an insider to those happenings, and can't say for certain what is happening for any particular product.
