You can try dynam brand... although I believe their larger esc's don't have built in BEC so you'd have to plan accordingly

look at the Blue Arrow ESC's at BPhobbies.com. I bought a 30amp for a 3 cell lipo for $18.

The GP Silver Series ESC would fit the bill. I use the SS25 in my Mini Funtana with an E-Flite Park480 and the SS45 in my E-Flite J-3 Cub 25 running the E-Flite Power 25. Both work flawlessly and are way under $100 the SS45 is $59.99 at Tower Hobby http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...7&I=LXKSY6&P=K

That what I've finally decided on. I really object to spending $100.00 for one. I also did not what to buy a no guarantee product of Ebay
Thanks for the info

Tower Pro ESCs have been good to me and you can't beat the price.

I would second Dynam ESC's. They're been performing very well for us here . Not as programmable as some of the other ESC's, but if you just want something that you can plug in and make work, they're hard to beat, especially for the price!
