Hi.

The board doesn't know what esc you are using , and it shouldn't have any problems with one odd esc as long as they are the same voltage range . One time I blew a esc and didn't have the same type (amperage ) So I replaced it with a larger one on my quad . Didn't make any difference in flying .
