This is a dumb question but what does YGE stand for and what is the YEP? Speed controllers.

YGE = Young Generation Electronics

I think the YEP is a Hobbyking clone

I heard it was just older firmware in the YEP's otherwise they are identical?

60% of the time, it works every time!

identical in design. but, it's a ripped off design. components are shoddy (IME).

I've flown YGE for years. Never had a problem with 4 HV controllers. Thought I'd try a YEP120HV for a fraction of the cost. First unit worked but the gov store feature was wonky. It would set but more than half the time it wouldn't govern consistently. More than half the time, trying to reprogram it even the programming wouldn't complete as expected (giving incorrect light flashes, beeps or other confirming indicators). RMAd it and received a 2nd unit (that process took nearly 2 months). That unit programmed ok. Got about 10 good flights out of it. Then, as I spooled up on the pad and got about 1' off the ground "POP". Blew a FET on the inside of the unit.

I processed the return with HK for store credit (all they would offer) and went back to YGE. Still no issues with a legit unit.

if it ain't broke, break it.
