Hobbywing Platinum ESC series- The most high end ESC by Hobbywing, made with best material
For Multi-Rotors, you'll need a reliable speed controller, and this is exactly the one you need. Price is good, the quality is good, we put this on our 5kg drone to do aerial filming, powered with 6S 22.2V battery, flew for 10 minutes, when it land this ESC is just slightly warm, that means energy has converted into motor rotation efficiently.
OPTO means this ESC lacks of the BEC Circuit, BEC circuit is to convert the battery's input voltage to 5V for powering the Receiver's or Servos, since Multi-Rotors has a flight controller on board, that will usually came with a BEC unit for powering itself and the receiver, so for Multi-Rotor players, they use OPTO ESC only to save money and less work load on the ESC.
