On this model, with the motor provided in the Agile 7.2 combo: Is a Castle HV Edge 120 enough for a 12S setup?

You could probably get away with it and you'd most likely thermal it. You'd be much better off with a 160. Recommended minimum is atleast a 160 amp.

160 minimum.

I would not fly the 7.2 with a 120. You would be asking for failure.

Okay, sounds good. Are you mostly flying with Castle, or are there worthy alternatives such as YGE, Scorpion?

Or, should I bite the bullet and go with a Kontronik? What are you flying with?

I am flying my 7.2 with a kosmik. I highly recommend this ESC. But not every budget has room for such. Most all major brands work great as well.
If I didn't want to spend the money on a kontronik, my next choice would be a Castle.
