Title: Which ESC for a Dickie Tug?
Post by: bluesea on June 16, 2006, 08:29:05 PM
Hi!

i would like to do something interesting on a Dickie Tug but i'm not able to find ESC Hitec SP-6/10A.

Anyone can suggest me another good ESC?

Thanks to all for suggestions.

I have used the MSonic speed controllers for a while now with no problems.
Compact and splash proof.

yes echoed all the sentiments viper 15 or for slightly better still Electronize 10 or the new 12 amp which has just landed
