This is the Team Orion Vortex R8 ProX Extreme 1/8 Scale Brushless ESC. The R8 Pro X is the no limit ESC. It is designed for those who need an extremely powerful ESC which can handle fast motors and up to 6S Lipo batteries. The previous design has been improved with an aluminum case, a updated cooling fan design and an improved software that enables further customization of the ESCs performance. This is the perfect choice for those who drive big trucks or cars that are powered by big motors and big batteries. The improved cooling and PCB design allow the ESC to handle the power and the advanced software allows you to fine tune the performance so that you remain in control in any situation. The ESC BEC system can supply up to 7.2V to your steering servo, this way you are sure to have all the power required for the servo to steer even the biggest wheels around the course.

A Brilliant ESC with loads of Power and an impressive 7.4V BEC that really comes in handy with some of the Steering Servos I use. Extremely reliable and highly recommended.

This ESC HAS LASTED TWO REAL HOURS of training!. Really bad and disappointing ESC. I have requested for support in and they have answered that it is normal for them. Honestly, extremely poor quality product and worse support from Team Orion. Never again. Daniel p.s. I was practicing in RC car circuit well maintained.

At first I had trouble programming this speed controller but once I got past that this speed control is impressive. I have it mounted in a Serpent 747e and the car has explosive acceleration. It can handle a 6s so for me running a 2s or 3s lipo I know I'm not stressing this speed control. If you're looking for a bad ass 1/8 scale speed controller this is it.

I run all Orion ESC's in my cars from 1/10th to 8th scale. I recently installed the R8 Pro in my new TLR 8ight-E 3.0 and the ESC is hands down crazy strong and paired with a strong battery it has loads of power and punch. The only issue I have noticed is the ESC under certain rare conditions it will bog down power for a split second (tried different lipos and software reflash) and keeps me from clearing a quad jump thats needed to keep lap times low. for that I cant give a 5/5 but other than that great esc!
