I think a couple of guys may be switching servo brands after that one...

Well, those servos had the Highest chance of going out.

But yeah, once I disassembled dozens of servos with motor failures or cracked motor soldering I am reluctant to run some servo brands. I now do test the servo motor regularly and looked into getting spare servo motors. Also hate servo with the motor soldered to PCB, wired is way more reliable.

Congratulations to Boots on a win well deserved!

This is the first time I've heard of the HIGHEST brand, and my first impression is to equate them with FAILURE ... Ronnefalk and Batlle must be steaming, because they both had an otherwise credible shot at the title.

Still haven't found enough evidence that they are the same person. They look different to me.

Still, both disregard the rule book and people wonder why EFRA events have to be cancelled (the 1/8th O.R. Euros B for example) and attendance is dropping.

I do not think so because the story is written by someone from the JQ team.

I'm referring to Mr. Alfonso Pineda, president of AECAR (the Spanish RC car association). Would be serious if he was accountable for both screw ups.

I do not think so, the 1/10 race was in Turkey, not in Spain.

My bad, they were lookalike but aren't the same person.

So, knowing that the RD acted against the rule book shouldn't he be punished by EFRA?
