65A and 8A bec for $50, wow!

Maybe its just me, but that seems too good to be true, considering the price of competition?

Awesome if it is the case, could put those in all sorts!

Seems like a popular ESC? Also has data logging.

The 8A is nice but I've run 4x 0255s on the 65A B- Series ZTW ESC w/BEC @5A switching with zero issues. Same mfg. as the Gecko.
I really like the throttle feel on the 85A Gecko in my MXS. It did take some messing to find the settings so it would play right with the Torque motor, but the Edge Lite would not no matter what I did.

Anyway I have several ZTW brand ESC and all of them work great.

I believe I was running a Hobbywing Platinum 60 when I had my issues, which only has a 3a BEC. You'll be fine with the Gecko. The only time I ever ran into trouble was during high speed hard snaps. The plane would keep rolling for a second after I released the inputs.
