Team Orion also had some new speed controllers and bundle packs with include both the new motors and the new ESC’s. There are also a new range of 1:36th scale and 1:18th scale brushless motors on display.

The company had their line up of a .21 buggy and circuit motors, as well as a .28 truggy engine and .12 circuit motor. All have been created using Adrien Bertin’s expertise and are looking really good.
