Very true. These are the terminals you solder your battery wires to. Never known them to be features though, more of a necessity.
Either way, yes you will get many different answers. That is what is great about this hobby, so many choices.
But to get back on topic, I run the Tekin RS and RS Pro. I run Tekin ESC's because they have been around for a while. Ran em back when NiCads were the standard battery and NiMH was just coming out. Even then they were an outstanding ESC.
They kinda know their shit when it comes to ESC's. Their support is second to none, nobody will deny that.
I run 12th scale. The Tekin has a great footprint and enough weight to help with lateral balance but not so much that it feels like a chunk of lead. The performance is top notch and bottom line....it just plain works. Having a Hotwire to tune the ESC is very handy as well.
The best thing I would say to look for when choosing an ESC. This is IMHO the most important factor, SUPPORT. If you can't get good support then don't even bother.
Well I gotta get back to packing for the IIC. Have fun in your search!
