    ecu is likely to be electronic control unit...
    gcp -- never seen that one -- where did you see it?

    "etc" -- add a list and we'll try and answer!

    But, for a start:

    esc = electronic speed control
    imu = inertial measurement unit

    Ok at least we got some and I have a couple more here.

    Let's make a list, so if you have any Abbreviations not on this list, please copy this list and paste your abbreviations into you new post. Just so we don't have them all over the place.
    Also if something are incorrect please correct, and please put them in alphabetic order, Thanks
