Help!
Wich ESC do i need?!

I have bought the HK Combat & Sloap Soaring Wing and a motor and all the other bits i need.

i have bought the Turnigy L2210-1230 and a plush 18Amp ESC.

i wanted to put a master airscrew 8,5x6 on this and fly it around at moderate speeds as im still learning and dont want to wreck one of only two flying models.

now to the battery. I have a 2200mah 3S and a 1300mah 2S. Wich of these will work with the 18Amp plush? I do have a 30Amp plush as well if that is needed.

will my motor handle that prop on 2S or do i need to put in the 3S and bigger ESC?

18a and 2s with that prop should be fine. I use a 15a and an 8x3 on 2s and the esc stays cool. 3s may cause it to get warm/hot so be careful.

Best bet Verrak, is to get yourself a watt meter. It saves all that guess work and burnt out items! Best 20 I've ever spent on RC gear.

Im not too concerned with this setup as i have noticed after some digging on the interwebs found out that it seems to be quite common.
