So I found this ESC and it looks quite similar to VESC design. Is it actually VESC or not even close? https://m.aliexpress.com/item/32815889032.html?pid=808_0000_0101&spm=a2g0n.search-amp.list.32815889032& Found the product page: http://www.flycolor.net/index.php?c=category&id=129
This ESC is should be based on the HobbyWing Platinum 80A HV V3 OPTO
Does that thing have brakes?
Can´t imagine it having a brake. If it did then maybe drag brakes - which is not so good in my own personal experience. I used a “flight” ESC - Turnigy K-Force 120a in particular but I´d advice you to save your money and grab a VESC of your choice.
