Regardless of what you call them, and the fact that maybe the only CX-2 parts left unscathed are the servos, Luv did a lot of work on both CX-2's and they're alive and well. There was something about the transmitter settings that got mine off in the weeds, not the brushless mod itself. It's on 2s now and is comparable to a stock CX-2, power wise, but I expect it to be a monster on 3s when I get the gumption to go that way. I will also verify that it will run without a programmable transmitter just fine. You need the stock LP5DSM so you can adjust gyro gain by the knob on top.
