I'd suppose you just need to check the resistance suits the application alike matching speakers to an home hi-fi stereo.

I suppose you could with a brushed speed controller....never thought about doing that.

Don't think you can wiith a brushless controller.

Using a brushless controller is nice... you can hook it up to a channel with a dial, and turn down the LED brightness to a comfortable level. No more going night-blind when holding your plane up close!
