As you may imagine, I accidently shorted the signal and positive pole which made my ESC stop working. I checked the servos and motor and they are fine. The receiver is also good. Now I am looking for an ESC that can be used in this little guy.

Anyone has any clue what ESC I can use here? Thanks in advance!

btw, I saw a guy selling his Multiplex Permax 400 motor and X-16 Speed Control. Does it work with my motor?
The Atom uses a small brushed motor, so I would guess the brushed ESC you linked should work - my knowledge of brushed motor/speed control combinations is limited so YMMV.

Here's a new one that's somewhat heavy, but it's cheaper than the combo you linked. Rotsa Ruck.
