Chinese Brushless Power is here

The HiMax - Tornado etc Hacker clones from China have been on sale for a while. Looks like the controllers from China have finally landed as well.

Has anyone tried it yet? Looks as though us Brits can get a potent brushless package with a propeller for under 100.
Why would anyone go with brushed motors now?

What makes you think this controller is Chinese? I don't see anything about China.

There ARE the Align controllers that are Chinese, but the one in that link looks like the EFlite controller with a different label on it. Also Schulze attaches the female bullets to the board on their Future connnectors. Could THEY be doing the OEM thing?

gkamysz: I think they are from China because the Himax motors are sold under the Tornado badge in the UK. Since this controller is labelled Tornado I assume that they are connected and hence from the same country.

If anyone has tried this controller I would be very interested in their opinion of it.

Interesting deduction. In America we have BMW X5's which are exported to Germany because they are produced in the US.
