What motor/ESC comes with the ST-Models ASW28 from Tower Hobbies?


Does any know the specs for the motor and ESC that comes with the ST-Models ASW28 from Tower Hobbies? I am trying to determine battery options that would be safe to use with the stock motor/ESC setup so I don't fry anything.
Thanks!

The motor is a 1000kv that maxes out around 8 amps with the stock prop. The best guess is that the ESC is around 10-15 amp. Just about any 2 cell between 1000 and 1300mah should work. I'm using a 1300mah Turnigy Nano-tech and it seems to work very well for both power and balance.

Thanks for the info! I have been using a Sky Lipo 1300 mAh, 2-cell, 20C and want to get a 2nd one but nobody stocks the 20C version. I can find similar ones with different "C" ratings like 15C, 25C, etc. and I'm wondering which one to go with and if it even matters??

I would think that a 25C won't seem any different that a 20C. My Nano-techs, from HobbyKing, have a 25-50C discharge rate. I must admit that I don't fully understand the effect of discharge rate very well but I don't think that a high rate will cause any problems for a system that isn't being taxed by too big a prop or something. Here's where I found them.
