I have an ERBE that the Monster Mamba ESC was toasted. I sent it to castle 2 weeks ago. I've been calling/ emailing since Monday. I finally got hold of a tech yesterday. He said they are working on getting to it. They have been backlogged since the recall issues.
Anyways I havent had a chance to run my ERBE as of yet. I picked this fine machine up on ebay for a good deal. I have tested everything including the castle 2200kv motor and its running good. I have an EMBE and tested the motor with the MM ESC on it. Other than the toasted MM ESC, all is good, which I knew when I purchased it. Looks like I might/ could be out for a little while, especially since the holidays are coming up.
I guess what i'm asking is what should I purchase in lieu of the MM ESC? Purchase the same off ebay? HPI Flux v3 ESC ( being waterproof, be good to just have around), issues, pro's, cons of buying that one. Or something cheap that would have me running till the replacement comes in. I dont want anything that will burn my motor up/ jeopardize my system. Maybe something in the $80-140 area. I could probably hold out another 3 weeks, but i really dont want to at the same time LOL. I dont think guys have the patience to wait. I'm already out 2 weeks w/o running it.
I'm currently running nothing but castle in all my rigs, so i'm basically setup to run them. I have the Field Programmer card, a couple links, and a good knowledge database on running with them.
So any recommendations are warranted. Thanks for the help in advance guys/ gals.
