Hi Daveorgan, with brushed motors it does not really matter how many poles the armature has, anything from 3 poles upwards will self start and that is all that is required.

The simplest of ESC's pulse the motor at low to near top speed at a frequency of about 50 times per second.  It gets this from the transmitter and it is the 'frame rate' for controlling the servos.  More expensive ones may have their own internal frequency generator for pulsing the motor at all but full speed.  At full speed it is nice to get current directly from the battery, i.e. not using the output transistors at all.
I had an old ESC that switched the ESC out of circuit using a by-pass relay so there were no losses through the ESC.

Don't know what happens now though, any info anyone?

The more poles the motor has, the lower speed it can turn smoothly.

Not all ESC's will go up to 12 volt though, that's where you need to be careful, plus ensuring you have the correct current rating.

If the most that the motor will pull is 8A then the 20A ESC will be fine.  It just means that you are not going to kill the ESC.  Close matching was only vital with mechanical ESCs, but with PWM types, what will handle a lot, will handle a little.
