Default Orion R10.1 still a good esc or is it outdated?

Tryed to get a answer on this on another forum without any help.
Been away from rc and racing the last 8-9 years.
I need a new sensored brushless esc and got a offer on a Orion R10.1 esc.
Is it still a good esc or is it as the title says outdated?
I have 3 speed passion gt2 esc from when i was racing but i guess they are really outdated.
What does a newer high end speedo do now compared to a high end speedo from around 2011?
Thanks in advance

It might be a good deal if you get the program box with it, or if you already have one of the program boxes for it. Unfortunately the Orion program box costs $90 so that can potentially outweigh the benefits of picking up the cheap ESC. This is less important if you're running a spec/blinky/stock class because most of the necessary adjustments can be done from the ESC itself if needed. I keep on of these ESC's as a backup but I find it inconvenient to program settings this way.

One main difference with the very newest Hobbywing XR10 G2 ESC's is that they have reverse polarity protection... I don't own one but it would only have to save you once from a reversed battery connection to pay for itself. Also, Most of the current generation of ESCs all have the ability to hook up to a wifi/bluetooth programmer which makes for very convenient programming from a cell phone.

You got a hell of a deal. I Would run those tell the blow or you pop one. I see alot of guys run that ESC in mod. I know few run the HMX in stock.
