Default Ultra lightweight ESCs

If you would like to build ultra lightweight ESCs for your mCP X, you can do like this:
Start off with one of the small ESCs, the DP 3A, the XP 3A or the Supermicro 3.5A (the lightest one).

Then replace the FETs with good FETs, like for instance the DMN2041/DMP2035:

For the main you "piggyback" a second set of FETs on top of the first.
Such an ESC with double DMN2041/DMP2035 is better than an XP 7A and only weighs about 0.4g.

Some pics of my beli build:
