 +===== ESC Setup =====
 +Most RC car ESCs implement a brake mode that prevents the speed control from changing direction immediately. This is fine for RC race-cars but will not work with tanks. If you have this type of ESC, you need to disable the brake or put it into "​crawler"​ mode. Some very inexpensive Chinese speed controls will only have a single mode, so do not buy one that has a brake if it can not be disabled. ​

 The Hobbywing Quicrun 1060 brushed speed controller is ubiquitous on AliExpress, Banggood, eBay, Amazon and even HobbyKing sells a variant. It is rated to 60 amps peak at up to 3S lipo input voltage. It is quite cheap, usually in the range of $20 USD, although versions with a fan or those that are waterproof ("​WP"​ version) go for more. Be sure to put them in "​F/​R"​ mode (forward reverse with no brake). ​ The Hobbywing Quicrun 1060 brushed speed controller is ubiquitous on AliExpress, Banggood, eBay, Amazon and even HobbyKing sells a variant.
