Default Most reliable ESC? Help me go shopping.

What would be your recommendation for an ESC that is reliable?
I am using JETI for the radio.

10S system
and the motor is Advance 30 - 10 by Plettenberg


thanks

If your D3 has not worked for you, perhaps the Jeti Mezon 130 12S esc would be more suitable in conjunction with your JETI Tx. I have used my Jeti Mezon 130 !2s esc with my Advance 30-10 for the last 2 years with ZERO issues. Contact Espirit Hobbies in Florida for more information or just go on their website. Hope this helped you.

You want the "Lite" version. Also be sure to order the Jeti Programming Box along with it unless you can program it directly from your Jeti Tx.

I’ve had pretty good luck with my Kontronik Jive 80 pro. Just another option.
