The Speed Controller (also widely known and refered to as ESC) controls the speed (commonly referred to as RPM [rounds per minute]) of the main motor.

So in a sense you can think of it as being the "throttle" if you compare it to a nitro model.

There are many good ones out there and look for one with the most speed steps. Now a day a speed controller comes with over a thousand speed steps and they make controlling your model all the more smooth.

After smoking 2 cheap ones I spent a little more and got a Castle Creations Pheonix 35.... What's cool too about it is you can plug it into your computer and program it instead of counting beeps and moving your throttle stick up and down hoping you set it up right...
