Can you run 2 brushless motors from 1 ESC???

I have a project in mind that requires 2 motors. I am using Tower Pro 2410-8Y motors with a 15 amp GWS brushless ESC.

I don;t want to doit if i am going to blow anything up. But the Motors pull 6 amps max with 7.4v so i will be under the total.

So will a single ESC work with both motors? What issues will i have to deal with when i put this all together? The motors are going to be identical so in the twin configuration it should not be much of an issue i think.

Any help you guys can give would be great.

This question gets asked once a week. A search would yield many results.

Short answer? No, very unlikely to work.
