Cheapest/Value 12S VESC/ESC?

Right but if a 20A ESC is capable of producing close to the maximum torque I can stay on the board with and it can go 30MPH, you can’t really say a VESC will be worth triple in this usecase

I only weigh 130 lbs, with gear

Yea im 205 so its likely that I would overheat the ESC much more easily

Yeah, agreed
