Kontronik makes the best speed controller hands down. You will pay a premium for it though.

#1 (Castle Creations) hands down! Get the Castle link and program your own head speeds.
It also has an Auto bail out so you can practice auto's...just flip a switch and the heli will quickly spool back up enabling you to abort.

You should consider getting a YGE 60. These are the controllers that are now shipping with the new MSH kits. These are very similar performance to Kontronik but significantly cheaper. They have part-load functionality just like Kontronik.

Here is a post about this from Corrado (of MSH):

I have been using the CC 75 Lite from its first release and have had no problems with it. Thats something that I can't say about Kontronik controllers. I haven't tried the YGE controllers yet, however all the reports that I have read have been favorable.

CC Ice lite 75. Works great. The set RPM gov works very well and the build in BEC is fine with the electronics on the Protos.

If you have a CG issue on your Protos then get the ICE 75 and place it under the main shaft - lots of room.

I've been reading reports that the YGE governor is rated above the Jazz, but below the Jive.
The YGE ESC seems really good, and very light.
It has the partial load capability which was only a kontronik exclusive.
I'd go for it...

1) Kontronix
2) YGE (built by Kontronix engineers that left)
3) CC Ice. I use the 75 Lite and it works great even for hard 3D. Governor works well but not as good as a Kontronix. For $100 it's hard to beat the CC.

You're paying 3x more for a Kontronix for 10% better governor performance.

CC Ice Lite 100A

So I guess the CC Ice Lite 100A will work good with the Protos and stock MSH motor? Thanks!

I am currently using a CC lite 100 in my Protos. The wires from the ESC to the motor are 10 gauge which make it hard to mount. I had to cut the ESC wires off and solder the motor directly to the ESC to get it to fit.
