It's an 18A motor, so choose an ESC more than 18A, a 20A ESC would be fine, preferably one that can be flashed with the SimonK firmware

Any of the below would work

I used turnigy plush 30a escs, for that exact motor. Is worked fine, plus then you are suited if someday you want more powerfull motors.... They dont cost much the Plush 30a

The downside with the plush's is that they aren't based on Atmel chips anymore so you need a different flasher and process to flash them with another firmware. Still possible to do but the flasher costs way more than the basic atmel one

The stock firmware if you have program card is really OK, not simonK but its working quite good...

F-30A or F-20A. F-30A would be better because 20A is a bit close

No ESC is plug and play, you either need to program it to set it up, or flash a new firmware on it. Without programming them you may find they cut out when you rbattery gets low and cause a crash

for that youre gonna have to flash it with simonK you might as well get the F-30A then. the blueseries still can be flashed, but the F-30A is a bit better.

It was supposed to be in one of the links in my first post but apparently I copy/paste failed

http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...C_3A_UBEC.html

The F30 is easier to flash as the pads are all lined up if memory serves, however the easiest way to flash ESC's without soldering is with something like this

you still need an AVRisp though
