I'm a bit at a loss.
If you dont need an ESC with onboard BEC or you don't need an Opto version (no BEC, external Rx battery used) ... I don't know of any other types of ESC to suggest.

If you don't need BEC then you want Opto

With that motor you can also run Castle Creations ESC

The Jeti stuff is outstanding . I am running the same motor with a Spin 77 and a 21x14 Falcon. Over the top power, never pulls over 68 to 70 amps.

Yes JETI is very good I also have 2 radio's from them and I'm using the Mezon.....but not knowing the level of electric knowledge of the 69roadrunner...I do have to point out that the amps pulled has really nothing to do with the ESC as per say...its a function of the motor / prop and battery combination....it could be a Turnigy it would pull the same Amps, the only difference is how it's working in relation with the motor, some ESC don't play nice with certain motor i.e. CC with Q Hacker motors....

Opto for the Jeti line mean no BEC so you need a receiver battery

69roadrunner - OPTO means optically isolated - so there is no electrical conection from the ESC to the Rx, the throttle signal is received via an opto-coupler - OPTO ESC's are usualy for high cell counts - theory being that the high voltages & currents being switched by the ESC could cause noise interference in the Rx via an electricaly connected path.

That motor has a very high Kv for 10s and is only rated at 1900 watts. Has anyone run that combination?
