Have the new 100c lipo batteries been submitted for ROAR approval, specifically the 14058 1s? Thanks.

To all who are going to switch over to Orion products, they should first read Team Orion warranty service before buying!! Bought VDS 1007 new low profile servo and the gears stripped, TRCR took care of that one for me. Put the new one in my RB6 and not long this one stripped too. Sent it in to Horizon Hobbies, I just got a call stating that they will not warranty the servo!! So as I said, check out the warranty info before you buy!! I will have two Team orion speedo's for sale hear shortly!!

What are you going to switch to? I couldn't find a servo manufacturer that covers their servos for "impact related damage". Hitec and Airtronics don't list specifics about their warranty on their websites and Futaba and Sav÷x warranty wouldn't cover broken gears from their wording. KO Propo warranty says " be free of manufacturer's defects" I wouldn't think breaking a servo gear would be a defect unless it was bad out of the box.

Do you run a servo saver?

Let me know when you want to get rid of your Orion stuff.

The RB6 can't run a servo saver, no space for it. For "impact related damage" I clipped a pipe but not hard impact to the servo. Before I installed the servo horn, checked the gear for slop and their was a little out of the box. Than installed the servo horn, wow more slop with horn on the servo. Checked with shop was this normal and they just didn't know. Installed in the RB6 and that servo only lasted that day. Checking into JR servo because that is what I run in my 8 scales. JR makes a new low profile servo but $$$$!!

JR servos are good but they will not warranty a servo due to a crash either.

It sucks that you had a bad experience with the servo that you have, but you clipped a pipe. Which does have a direct impact on the servo. I just don't think its good to bad mouth a company and their warranty when every company is the same in this situation. Companies don't warranty servos when you crash, it happens and that's why they sell replacement gear sets. Do I wish they covered this? Yes of course I do, but none of them do. Good luck with whatever you decide for a new servo.

1. Im not bad mouthing them or any other company. 2. All electric item's that you buy from any manufacture can have problems and still work until that one hit or plug in. 3. I'm not a novice driver, I had sponsor's but due to having kid's, I stepped away for a little time. I own futaba, JR servos and never had them to do this is all i'm trying to say. Even the sponsor driver's hit pipes and crash hard!

i like the original rsx one10 by ko propo for lo pro. primarily because you can order the gearset from ko propo america for 30-40 bucks. next lo pro i will get will be the bsx2 power lo pro servo. and if you want no slop get the largest carbon fiber clamp on servo horn from ko america and then you will have to carefully measure and drill a new hole below the existing hole and the cut off the top and dremel round it to fit in the rb6 (cuz the shortest carbon horn was still to big to fit).

Yes on ordering the gears for $30 bucks, but now the servo becomes $130+ servo when they need to check out their top part of the case.

Default Team Orion ESC for Losi 8ight-E 3.0

Hi Joe,
I'm currently using Vortex R10.1 on my AE B5M and have a program box as well. Now, I have a question regarding the ESC on my new Losi Eight-e 3.0 and would like to know which one is much better for it: (A) Vortec R8 ProX Brushless ESC, ORI65129 (B) Vortex R8.1 Pro, ORI65125 and look for your preofessional reply.

Thank you for your kind attention!
