At the moment I'm using an ESC for my turret rotate windshieldwiper motor.
 Its rated up to 10 cells (12V) with a peak current of 180A.  I bought it
for around 50EUR = 60$   It doesnt even get warm when I use it for 10

These ESC's seem to go up in price exponentially when you want to use them
for larger moters.  The good part about the ESC's is that some of them
have a BEC output: 6V 2A max to power your receiver/servo's!
(It's item 225072 - 89 on www,conrad.nl)

All in all it's hard to beat the Anvilus in price or performance!
