Thanks for everyones input.. I really appreciate it. I have narrowed the field down to the KO VSF-1 Pro or the GM v12xc.

So this doesn't become a popularity contest. Can anyone tell me of pros or cons that they can think of between these two?

Thanks again!
If it were between these two only I would say the Ko only because of product support in the US. The GM is a realy sound choice good options and fast, but like I said the SX12 from GM has more options. The best part about the KO is the hand held programer, great for fast changes. You would need a GM Commander to change the settings fast on the v12 or the SX12, other wise it can take a few minutes to go through the whole setting procedure. I know GM fans I am selling out but for his needs and probably his wallet cause the Commander new is $300.00 or even used off Ebay (that is how I got both of mine) $125.00. The KO handheld is only $70.00 so you do the math.
Unless you need a new charger.....if you do the GM Commander is a great choice then you can program any of the GM Highend ESC probably forever...SO there are the pros and cons.
The KO is a top notch ESC has won many US and Asia races and the GM is a big winner in Europe.
Choice is yours.
Remember if your not having fun your doing it right.

a pretty good programming unit. you can scroll thru
the menu pretty quick....

which i don't have.. and sometimes it is pain in da butt to change
the settings.... so i usually leave it in stock function.

I recommenfd the Commander to anyone in the market for a new charger.
If you get the newer update it can charge Li-Poly and LI-ion.
Oh yea you can upgrade your Commander by just switching out a chip. In fact I just did.

The KO VSF-1 Pro with the Multi-setting unit is about $220, which is a pretty good deal.

KO support seems to be pretty good, you even have the thread right here on RC Tech with KO employees
