Help with ESC choice

Hey guys, Im looking for a new ESC for my foamies, I want a brushed ESC with BEC and a programable brake to fold the props, I would like it to run all my brushed motors from the Tipsy 280, speed 300, 400, maybe 2 300s or 2 400s, and a single speed 480 race bb. I see one on EAM, its a SMM 25 rated at 25 A continuous, that looks good to me for $46.95, but there is a SMM 25 and a SMM 25s and no explanation as to the differance that I can see , is the differance in the RX plug type,,,, ? I have a Futaba radio.
Do you guys know of anyone else online in the US that has ESCs for a good price that will do the trick for me?

Castle Creations make great stuff. I have a Jeti 25, Great Planes, and Eletri Fly C20. I have never had any problems with ESC, but I usually run flat out with the brushed motors. Look for hi frequency for efficency, low weight for the small motors. There are some deals on ESC out there.
