At the end of my WOT flights, the motor and esc would come down cool to the touch. I would say if you are going to eventually move into 4s batteries, it may be best for you to purchase a bigger ESC.
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

80 amp burst current and tough as nails. Same as theTurnigy Plush Hobby Wing family and use the cheap program card if needed

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!
