You need a sensor wire. haha If you don't have one I have extras. For 1s you need to look at whether you will need a booster or receiver pack or nothing at all. Some of the LRP's can go with nothing at all. But they have been notorious for their BEC's failing. So the new boards LRP is updating the ESC with is supposed to need a booster or receiver pack. I've seen a few people say their is working fine without a booster? But I dunno how long it will work that way.
I would say run a Tekin RS with a receiver pack. But thats me. I like Tekin
You could go with Hobbywing also. Heard decent things about them. Lots of options really.
