I have both and find the Tekin be superior in design. Tekin has a hard case, setup (throttle, brake, etc) is done onboard with the buttons and is easy to adjust, solder posts mean wire changes are not an issue. They both perform basically the same, but the added features of the Tekin does it for me

also, the mamba speedo is prone to cogging on take-off.

Very prone to cogging, lol, I have one and I hate the thing.

Anyone know if the Mini Rage esc will work with larger motors, such as the AON 4900 (http://aonelectric.com/Products/Brus...ategory=Thrust)?

IMO The tekins speedy looks to be better than the mamba, but the motors look exactly the same. I have the mamba and it goes like clappers
Just my 2c

I think he means it goes on and off like the clapper, clap on clap off, if you dont know what the clapper is you will have to wait till the christmas commercials come around again, or ask your grandma.
