They seem to still be around. But their offerings are pretty uninspiring... Their ESCs look to be very similar to the ZTW/ProPerformance/Fantom/Trinity ESCs, and their motors dont look to be anything special.

Looks to me like another company that got bought up for the name and turned into venue to rebrand more Chinese products.

Orion/Performa escís are and always have been HW oem/rebrand. Their equipment is old now and pretty much think stick a fork in them they appear to be done

They went down the drain, when coat cutting came into effect. They were great when they were still brushed Motors and NiMH!

The whole nitro stuff is not listed anymore on the website so Bertin is probably also not there anymore....
