Yes, that is true. We have 3 types that we will be releasing:

14S / 175A - $199
18S / 200A - $249
24S / 250A - $299

The small one is the same length as the Castle HV160, but is 1/2" wider. It weighs 1 oz less too.

The medium size is 7" x 2.5" x 3/4" and weighs 1 oz less than the SPIN200.

The big one is 8" x 2.5" x 3/4" and weighs 2oz more than the SPIN200.

We are still testing the coding. There will be PC software to make changes to the settings.

Yes, heat sinks are resolved. We have some issues with fast throttle response causing commutation errors. The only way to resolve this is to slow down the throttle response (like everyone else does).

We have no intention of releasing smaller controllers at this point, but that could change.

We are still doing some testing. 12S presents no issues regardless of the throttle response setting. 14S requires slower up/down, so we need to know where that threshold is. We won't release anything until it is ready.
