will burn my motor with higher c rate ? or maybe burn my esc.....
I believe that most of the rc modelers think tha 20c will be less power and faster than a 25 c....BUT WHAT IS THE CORRECT BEHAVE OF THOSE C RATE ?
1. A 3S 2200mah 20C is fine.

2. You could go with a 25C or even 30C if you want to spend the extra bucks.

3. You should expect very little difference between any of the various C rates.

4. You will not burn up your motor or ESC by using a higher C battery.

If you do not agree with any of the above, or even if you do, you should get a wattmeter and measure the differences, if any, for yourself.
