Help choosing an ESC to use


I’m currently building a quadcopter and need some help finding the correct ESC to use. I don’t want insanely expensive and powerful ones, but ones that are safe (not a high chance of failing while in use), and ones that work with my specified motors and batteries, which can be found below. Thanks.

Battery: (Turnigy 5000mAh 2S 20C Lipo Pack) link
Motors: (Andoer A2212/13T 1000KV Brushless Motor) link, specifications can be found near the bottom of the page.

Try a quadcopter forum?

If you want high reliability I suspect you pay more. If you do go for cheap ones you should
burn them in on a test jig for a while to weed out any dodgy ones, ie cut off the start of the
bathtub curve. If you go for cheap, order a couple of spares anyway.

I've had an ESC explode (literally) on first being powered up, so yes the cheap ones are
cheap for a reason!

Isn’t this the third thread about the same motors?
