Hi all,

Looking at a Viper Air 60A ESC. Pretty cheaply priced, but seem to have decent features. Any comments on them being any good? Looking to get a 60A (60A continuous, 75A burst) even though my motor only draws 40A (Power10) in order to have some headroom incase these things are 'as-advertised'

Anyone use one before?

Not familiar with the Viper ESC, But the Turnigy ESC are the best of the Best for the Price, Never Ever Had any Problems with them, and this 60 Amp ESC has a UBEC rather than a Linair Bec, it also has a burst of 80 Amps, Turnigy ESC have been Bullet Proof for me, what is the price on the Viper, the Turnigy 60 amp Esc is $34.98

Check out the Castle Creations Talon line of ESC's. These units use a switching type BEC (Battery Elimination Circuit) with the 90 Amp ESC providing a 20 Amp rating on their BEC. You can safely run them at their rated ampere level without issue.

I've got one, it's built like a cement truck.

They also have a 35 Amp ESC.
