Help finding ESC w/SimonK

Okay guys,

Got my new quad (Armattan 400) love the thing, but I've shown a talent for crashing it into the ground. I've got one motor not spinning, (It's trying but no joy) so I thought it was the motor...wrong. I noticed the esc connected to the non-working motor is getting warm when the others are cool to the touch.

I'm having a hell of a time finding some reasonably priced 20amp esc's that have been flashed with SimonK's firmware. I've found them for $20ea but thats a bit spendy, because I'm not sure if I can get away with just using one...may have to buy four, just not sure.

Here are the one's I have on my quad, but they have been out of stock for who knows how long.

If anyone could point me in the right direction, I would be very grateful!

Thanks,

-Pat

RCTimer has the worst shipping ever. They make HobbyKing look like Pizza Hut Delivery!

I have also heard bad things about RCtimer "flashed" esc's.

But I know Matt frequents this board, so if you had any issue with SkullCopters ESC's the dude's just a PM away.
