Just kidding. I don't know the maker, but on the esc it had two labels, one said 40A another said 45A. What's that all about?
What did yours look like?
I've attached a picture of the ESC that came with my Squall (3S?) from eflypower. The quality of the PCB and silicone wires seems good. I'm not going to remove the heatsink, but I can see 12 fets and 2 regulators. The mcu is a Silabs C8051F334.

What retracts are they.
I wanted the very nice all metal retracts from Aircraft-World. but the inward retracting ones seem to be permanently out of stock.

I'd say that they are these, the legs look to be different but the mech's are the same;

got my HET 6904 and a Phoenix 125 ESC en route. Getting closer

Are Hitec HS65's good enough for this bird?

I have them in mine, and on the first one I had, I was using HS-55's! with my Hoffman storm.

Hey buddy, You are way over my head with that talk. First, what is a fet? and are the regulators the two round things? I thought those were resistors.
And what is a mcu?
I would imagine that there are different suppliers for these components dealing with different parts of the globe.

Sorry about that. I just mentioned the components in case someone can identify the ESC.
(FET = field effect transistor = switches the current to the motor. Regulators are components on the circuit board that take a higher voltage and give you a constant voltage, like 5V for the receiver and servos. MCU = microcontroller unit = brain of the ESC.)
