Spec and modified Surpass V5R motors are now in my inspection queue. I've received a large number of motors and ESCs in the last few weeks, so expect a processing time of several months.

No Surpass motors are in the inspection queue, though it's possible that something is in transit to me. Manufacturers usually contact me before sending anything.

We found an issue with the R1 V21 25.5T during inspection. There is no delay on the part of ROAR. R1 knows of the issue, but has not yet sent corrected motors for inspection.

There is, however, a large difference in rotor strength between my Novaks and...

ROAR does not charge for approvals. The only requirement is that the manufacturer be a ROAR member. The testing fees are paid directly to the independent testing labs.
