Hi Tassie48
I use Hobbywing Quicrun 60Amp brush motor ESC which run on 2 and 3S lipo batteries.


Link setup for NMIH and Lipo batteries , also for the forward/reverse setup.


This is the only one I have found that will go straight from forward in to reverse !!!!


The connectors I change to gold bullets on the motor and XT60 for the battery side.

While I would hope that an ESC intended for 3S "should" be OK on a 12 volt (presumably SLA) setup, I would go for an Mtronics marine viper of the same rating as the Elecronize, maybe the next higher current band to give a bit more safety factor.  Or one of the Action offerings.

Sadly the electronize E S C are no longer available with this in mind  I would have to agree with Malcom on his recommendations.

The Quikrun esc has always given good results.

Hi Tassie reference speed controllers each one will have its good points and bad points. I take a very cautious approach to some specs given. For me I use Action along with MTronicks. The Hobby wing controller works fine but there are so many to chose from I am sure members will be able to supply more info to other E S C.

Another vote for MTroniks. Used loads. Never had a problem. They even survive sinking!
