Default RC Tamiya Forklift Conversion

Hi Guys I bought a Tamiya Forklift because it would be a simple conversion to RC as it allready had the electric motors and mechanisms. All that it needs is the electronics.

I initually used esc's I pulled out of some cheap hobbyking servos which worked great for a short time but they soon fried.

I am running a 2s lipo 7.4v to a UBEC to lower the voltage and low voltage alarm.

I need your guys help as to what other esc's I could use. The motors are only very small in this forklift so I have found it hard to find suitable esc's that are suit these motors.

Here is a quick video back when I built it.

That's cool, i don't remember seeing this kit. How do you like it so far?

You should be able to get by with the cheap no-name 10A or 20A reversing speed controls. Just be sure to pull the Red wire off the rx plug for all of them that aren't supplying the bec for it.
