Team Orion® is a world-renowned manufacturer of World Championship winning batteries, chargers, motors and ESCs. Since their first release in 2012, the Swiss brand’s Vortex R10 and R10.1 Pro ESC have dominated almost every major off-road event worldwide

After his tremendous victory in 2wd, Ryan Maifield makes the double at the IFMAR World Championships held in China this week. The US driver used Team Orion batteries, motors, chargers and the new HMX® Technology speed controllers to take home the win in the 4wd class today. Team Orion driver and 1/8 World Champion David Ronnefalk finished second, while Ty Tessmann (4th), Jörn Neumann (5th) and Dakotah Phend (8th) completed the extraordinary result for the Swiss manufacturer of high-end power equipment.

Team Orion's new HMX® speed controllers have been used first time at a World Championship. Immediately the 32bit controllers proved to be in a class of their own taking home the victory in 2wd and 4wd. With 5 drivers in the top 10 of both classes, the HMX® controllers were clearly dominating the event. With the difficult track conditions, perfect power and brake control were a crucial factor for the outstanding performance of the team.
