I'm about to put my 550 back together after a crash
Busted the esc in the crash. What speed controller should I get?
I'm thinking about the CC ice 75.

For the 550 wouldn't it make sense to spend a couple more bucks and get the ICE 100?

Ice 100 in my Lepton. Programming and data download is excellent. I also use a separate BEC, Hercules hi power.

Hey.

You might not need it now but as skill level increases so to will load on the ESC, so its better to spend a bit more now than have to update again later.

Also you will need to add a separate BEC, the ICE100's not up to the job even though its better rated on paper than the Align ESC's BEC.
