There is a list of 1s esc HERE

That new Reedy BlackBox looks sweet too

There is an equivalent ESC from Hobbywing. the XERUN 120A 1S V3.1 ESC

I currently use both the ORCA and Hobbywing 1S ESCs; and, find them to be equal in their overall performance. Both are on the ROAR approved ESC list.

The Vortex R10 Pro is a 2-3S ESC. So, I think you mean the VTX1 which is supposed to be good for both 1S and 2S. Have not seen one yet.

If you decide that 2S is right for your local racing scene, be aware that it is crazy fast and sometimes dismisses being able to use spec WGT tires. Been there...done that...

FYI;

At last week at the hotly contested IIC race in Vegas - Max Kuenning assembled the all new VBC WGT chassis at the hotel early in the week. Qualified a real decent second place - them Won the A-main beating the best in the world! No doubt - this car has great potential.
