I've got a Starmax MX2 55" and I'm needing to replace the ESC and need some help getting the right replacement. A Internet search shows it having either a 45A or 70A ESC with a 5A UBEC. I find different info on the same plane. I figure to be safe I should go with the 70A? I'm looking at 2 different ones at HK. Which looks to be the best choice and what should I be aware/warned of? Other options?
