Well I decided to take a drive on down to the beautiful ocean front city of Vista, CA. The people at Innov8tive are very very friendly, and also have a very organized office and a pretty big warehouse, which is also extremely organized. I definately would not worry at all about ordering online from this place.
Here are the pics, I also got a V2-b tail for my 700E directly from Assurance RC on my way back. Wow I can finally FLY! Castle has had my 80hv for about half a year now... AND the new ones seem to be catching fire... so thats why I drove, I was going crazy not flying.

Mine is on the way from Innov8tive as well. I'm in Montreal, Quebec so it was too far a drive. Will you be testing? Playing?

Although I plan to use the vbar gov, I'm just your average flyer. I just fly more conservatively because even if I happen to have extra money laying around, I can't live with myself if I have to rekit a 700. I still fly low sometimes and push the envelope from time to time. But what I like the most is a well tuned smooth smooth flying machine, that can still do tight tick tocks as well. If I am unsure about vbar gov, then I can run the scorpion gov for now. Vbar gov setup scares the heck outta me, but I know I want it lol.
I'm the like the outcast, most people in my area fly so hard, I doubt any heli lasts longer than a month.

I'm a noob with no 3d skill or desire. Just sport. Been doing this since October. Sim, msr, mcpx, a 600esp (1 hard landing and 1 very hard telephone poll). This esc is destined for a goblin my fiancée ordered for me for Christmas.
I will be using this with either a hc3sx or sk720 (I have both). Any info on this esc would be great.

Well mrmel says it runs cool, and makes more power than any other speed controller out there currently. Why he just said has lot to do with timing. One of the bigger points is it doesn't draw huge amp spikes like all the other controllers.
Now idk how much he is "selling" this or not, but I trust him.
Here is the video where he talks about it

Nice surprise I just got mine delivered. This is a pretty big beefy esc for a 130A! Its the same size as my HV160 in width and length including the caps. I am eager to get this thing mounted on my 800 and finally do away with the external CC bec on it.

Awesome. Yea I'll be mounting mine today and re setup the vbar. I had bad sensor and readyheli sent me one quick, but I gotta mount that stuff too. Maybe I can get some test flights in. This will be the first flight in like 6 months, helicopter is full of dust and even a spiderweb....this is all castle's fault.

Could not wait for mine to arrive, really neat and bulky ESC. Little on the heavy side and wires are very long. You cannot reduce the length on the battery side unless you remove the spark arrestor, however I don't think that this unit will have the same ripple current issues that is evident in other ESC's. I like the HV BEC, spark arrestor and built in phase sensor, works great with VBAR gov. My programming card came faulty however I accidently ordered two, proggraming a new ESC is always daunting however thanks to Mr Mel and scorpion, this one is ridiculously easy even with VBAR Gov. I got mine on Wednesday and fitted it to my CHP converted T700. Total weight with 10s lipos is 4.3Kg, flies like a Logo 600 3D. First take off was really scary since I hardly popped the pitch and it shot up into the sky almost defying gravity.
I think after sometime I will be converting all my kontroniks and castles since they don't have built in phasing and HV BEC.
Would love to see logging in this ESC like with Castle ESC to see what power it produces.
