John, an ESC stands for Electronic Speed Controller, a small, normally shrink-wrapped circuit board that plugs into an output channel on the receiver and controls the speed of your drive motor.
It must be pretty good!! I've been licensed since 1983. My first license as a "novice" was in 1965, but the code requirement to up-grade back in the day, was not do-able for me. In the years since 1983 I was able to raise my code speed, but fortunately the FCC discontinued the code requirements, and I now hold a "general" class ticket. I am proud to be able to use Morse code even though it's no longer required. Ham radio is awesome. The people in it are top-notch. I wish you luck. KA0HSS----73
