An 11600kv motor is meant to be run on 1s, that's a pan car motor. You'll fry something if you run it on 3s, regardless of gearing and even on 2s I bet it'll end very badly. If you're going to run it on NIMH/NiCad packs, you'll need a 4 cell pack.

IMO, sell that motor and get something that's an appropriate kv for what you want.

Running 1s requires HIGH C 1s packs, as well as a 1s capable ESC and either a receiver pack to power the receiver/servos, or a voltage booster to increase the voltage from the pack to give enough voltage for the receiver/servo.
