LMS4-G Review
« on: January 21, 2022, 11:53:50 AM »
Everything is the same as the 3SG, except one HUGE difference - I can run my Accucraft locos at scale speeds now.

I am totally battery powered. Those Accucraft units are geared very low, With a 3SG, I could run the 4449 GS4 at a max of about 40 mph, and that was with a 5S LIPO. With the 4SG, I can run a 6S HV LIPO in it and get about 26V and run that critter at about 65, much more realistic and fun.

So I'm a satisfied 4S user. I think if you go with a 4S, it will give you everything the old 3S would, but also provide the capability to get your speed way up there, especially with USAT and Aristo locos. Have to make sure you install the latest HC software too.

You must be a beta user, unless I'm missing it it's not listed on Ring's site yet. But the HC upgrade to handle the LM4 is.

The LM-4S-G has started shipping to retailers. I expect my stock soon. The pricing is the same as the LM-3S-G

Ring markets like a bunch of engineers. Oh, wait...
