Default Upgrading to brushless

I have an element enduro builders kit that I am currently running a 1080 ESC and Holmes crawl master sport 15t that I would like to upgrade to brushless.


Iíve been eyeing a castle copperhead 10 ESC and Holmes brushless motor

and a Hobbywing quicrun Pro with FOC


Does anyone have recommendations or first hand experience with either? And have any suggestions on a Holmes brushless motor?

To stay lightweight I would go Holmes snubnose Revolver https://holmeshobbies.com/motors/bru...se-2040kv.html and a CC micro mamba esc.
I have the same motor in my comp rig with a prototype ESC on 3s and it plain rocks .
On the budget a Hobbywing Fusion SE is a no brainer for 70 bucks though. https://www.amainhobbies.com/hobbywi...04317/p1464186

I think this is the best, light weight, easy to adjust parameters. very fair priced.
Takes tons of beating too

great controll, great torque, awsome modularity
This is the future

That's an excellent brushed setup. Why are you looking to change to brushless?

Just curious. This question comes up in our club all the time.
