You cannot go wrong with Electronize Speed Controls.
I use them in all my projects including my 2.5m (8.2 ft)long aircraft carrier Guiseppe Garibaldi (see May 2007 edt Model Boats)
You can now buy electronize on-line at www.electronize.co.uk

i have just bought a esc from ebay for about 20 quid its 110a forward and 40a backward
it does the business for me and it came with a deans connecter and shrink sleeve
the only thing i found wrong was it had the old type tamiya plugs on the must be cheap
overseas you have to wait a week but the wait was worth it hope this helps mick

I think I've seen these on Ebay, are they from china / Hong Kong ? - I've heard on other forums they have very poor slow speed control, have you tried yours yet ?. Because of this I've just bought 3 Msonics at £36 each. Would like to know how you get on with yours for future builds.
Cheers - Ken

We welcome well written contributions from Website members on almost any aspect of Model Boating with a particular emphasis on practical hints, tips, experience and builds.
In order to maintain a consistent standard and format, all suggestions should first be sent to me by Personal Message for approval in principle. Only a very limited amount of time is available for editing contributions into a suitable format for placing on the website so it is important that the material is well presented, lucid and free from obvious spelling errors. I think it goes without saying that contributions should be illustrated by appropriate photos. I shall be happy to give advice on this.
The Member Contribution area offers space for short informative mini articles which would not normally find a place in Model Boats magazine. It is an opportunity for Website Members to freely share their expertise and experience but I am afraid that virtue is its own reward as there is no budget to offer more material recompense!
I look forward to receiving your suggestions.
