Supply and demand ?

Where did you get those prices? Are they from the same reseller? Short of different pricing scheme from different places, this can happen within the same seller? For example, the seller is pricing based on supply, demand and availabiltiy. The sellers may even get a bigger discount on certain models since they sell more of that. I can go on forever but pricing items in a business can be a complicated topic.

It won't hurt your motor. The controller just weighs more. I would check out Castle Creations controllers. They are cheaper, lighter, and have programmable timing for different brands of motors. You can find them at Radical RC, Mega Motors USA, Dynamo Electrics and NESail just to name a few.
