Best way to upgrade would be swap out and resolder. Make sure you put some 2mm heatshrink on first, though, so you don't have to do a messy tape job. I didn't find this a problem with my model... but it was a kit so didn't have an ESC to start with.

If you're looking for a place to put the ESC, in the first 8 pages or so of this thread I put up some photos of my setup. Included is one of the ESC which is mounted in a hold in the floor of the battery compartment, FET chips in the breeze of the intake. I used a HobbyKing 'Super Simple' 8A unit.

Chads - You can simply remove the plastic servo plugs and use the individual plugs instead - this saves a small amount of weight but also cuts down on size. I would advise heatshrinking the individual lead plugs with 2mm heatshrink to avoid shorting against each other, this has worked well for me in the past. I can post pictures if needed.

Cheers - boingk
