    looks like an ESC
    if those three light blue wires go to one of your motors
    and the small red white black wires go to the power board servo rail
    and the big red and black wires go to the power distro board that is an ESC
    should have been covered in black heat shrink, and possibly had a 20A sticker on it

    Thanks Pyrate. Completely helpful, and totally correct from what the Internet is telling me. Electronic speed controller. 20 amp. Anything else I should know before I order one from my local hobby shop? Like would this (Flycolor 20 Amp Multi-rotor ESC 2~4S with BEC be a suitable replacement for the x8 esc?

    Again, thank you for the information
