    Any other 4s ESC options

    I have a Tekno Neu sitting in the box while my MMM is at CC. What options are out there to run a Neu on 4s. I know I can take an MM and run a bec/fan. But is there any ESCs built for 4s that would be best for an e-revo/1515 1y application?

    Well, there's MGM, Quark, Schulze, Jazz, and a bunch of others. Each has their little pitfalls: support may be lacking (usually because of georaphical location), missing features/not very programmable, thermals easily, expensive, hard to get, etc.

    Wow, not exactly confidence building. Sounds like my best bet is an MM/bec.

    Thanks

    lol, yeah, each has their shortcomings, but the MM is really hard to beat for the price.

    Even the new Losi one has had reports of failures. No ESC is exempt from failure - gotta consider the power levels these little devices are designed to pass and it's not surprising...

    Its small and green.

    If you mean the MMM (Mamba monster, the MM is the mambaMax), then there are no updates beyond whats been posted previously:

    Will have wires for batts instead of plugs.
    Will still have plugs for the motor wires.
    Has some software and hardware updates to hopefully improve reliability.
    Looking at mid to late october until it starts to ship (V3).
    I am SuicideNeil, please dont shoot.

    I havent found anything better than my MM and Bec for an MT. Keep it at around 40mph or less and it works great. Every time I pull the trigger all 4 tires light up and I keep expecting to see fireworks, but it just diggs in and shoots to full speed. If it wasnt for the MMM being so close I would start to stock up on MM's right now.
