Can’t tell from the current product pages and renders, are the power wires on these integrated, or user replaceable via some sort of wago-style connector?

Edit: Nevermind, this page just went live on the CTRE site

So, it’s a Falcon with a different manufacturer under a different name?

The business model still seems to demand that consumers throw out the $150 motor controller if the $50 motor fails…

Every single Talon FX PCB assembly is built on the electronics production line at the CTR Electronics HQ in Macomb, MI.

Additionally, CTR Electronics added an automated robotic assembly line at their HQ. This line will be used for final integration of the Talon FX and Kraken X60, ensuring quality and consistency during critical steps in the manufacturing process.

Furthermore, 100% of these units go through final QA testing and validation in Michigan before being shipped to customers

:heart: :heart: :heart:

Eh. With one vendor you have to throw out the motor controller if the motor fails. With the other, you might have to throw away 2 motor controllers if the motor fails. Same boat in my book.
