grayson microjet v3 question...

I just bought a v3 and I already have a 40A esc and a 1- lipo BATTERY 2200MAH 11.1V 20C. will the battery and esc work with this V3 motor? If not what battery and esc combo would I want for this v3? BTW it is going on my wild hawk.

They'll work together, yes. Make sure you use the right prop (~6x4 for that motor).

You might find you want a slightly smaller, lighter battery to keep overall weight down, but the one you have will still work fine.

Great, Thanks! So the bigger the esc the better?

Not necessarily. An ESC that's bigger than necessary has no negative effect on the power system and will usually run a little cooler, but it'll also be heavier. At some point the extra capacity isn't worth the additional weight.

For your plane, you won't notice the extra couple grams.
