Thank you I am thinking the same thing
I think the 60a with an 80a burst would be a safer option
Most of the 50a only seem to burst to around 55a
Will be working too hard all the time, to close to its limits

That's great, thanks for that!
This ESC looks like the way to go, 80a burst is plenty
6x4 on 3s will be way under 60a, and 5.5x4.5 on 4s should be around the 50a mark?
Won't be working overtime!
