Depends on the size of the prop and what voltage you decide to use...

Generally, on a motor that size, you're either gonna use a 2s or 3s lipo, or something equivalent. But as Challenger said, it depends on the application.

I'm using a very similar Turnigy motor in my Hobbico Superstar EP with a 45 amp esc and 3000mah 20c Zippy 11.1 volt battery. The prop is a 9X5.5 and it's pulling 290 watts at 23 amps. Works for me.

I have just come home from "Weston park show" where I talked to Overlander who's brand thay are and there going to e-mail a speck's sheet on the motor.

Cheers for the help.
