Two BL motors on one ESC?
Can anyone tell me if I can run two brushless motors from single ESC?
If not, why not?

It has been tried, not always successfully.
The motors need to be well matched.
If one starts and the other doesn't, the non-running motor will draw current like the stalled motor it is. Depending on the motors, ESC and battery pack, you could get lots of smoke.
This has been asked dozens of times here and on the Power Systems forum. You can probably find a lot of info with a couple searches.
Edit: Oops, didn't see your reply!

Kontronik's ESC could do that, why? dont know.
They advertize such a twin combo for long time. Tried = ok, others brands, some run for a while cant experiment on that for cost is too much for me....
