I would say your looking at an ESC around 20 - 50 Amps........ and a Fuse!

 
Performance:
Voltage: 12V DC. Reversible by reversing the polarity.
R.P.M. (no load): 5,100
Current consumption (no load): 1A
Current consumption (maximum efficiency): 5.3A
Current consumption (suggested maximum continuous): 7A
Current consumption (stalled): 26A

These three would be my go to controllers, assuming a 12v supply. Note that the Action unit will need a stabilized 5v supply to drive the Rx, readily available.


No doubt someone will helpfully suggest the Electronize FR30 unit, they will, as always forget to mention that they are no longer produced! However, if you can find one second hand, add it to the above list, with the same requirement for a 5v supply to the Rx as the Action unit. I have used three out of the four above units with no problems. All come highly recommended.
