Best bang-for-buck on S400 Speed controller?

Title says (almost) all...

I will be using 7-8 cell 600AE Nicads or 9 cell 1000mah NIMH...

How many amps does a s400 usually pull?

I have a 6x3 CAM folder for DD and may use with a gearbox version too.

A 20 amp controller will do for speed 400.

I heard Kontronix is good for the buck

I use the Jeti 350 which can work up to 35 amps. With speed 400, I don't think you will ever see more than 20 amps with Speed 400s, so this ESC if great, particularly if you plan on swapping it between planes that have Speed 400 all the way up to Speed 600s.

Kontronik Sun 1000 is the best bang for the buck that I've found.
