Problem now is the ESC. I have been told a Schulze ESC is the only one capable of handling the power. Bit pricy, any alternatives out there?
I will also need a LiPo charger as ordinary chargers dont work with LiPo correct?
Yes, 11.1volts is the way to go for high speed. Not sure which ESC's can handle that. In micro, the Mamba ESC easily handles it but a Mamba 25 ESC would not last long powering a larger motor.
If you are going for speed, and not racing control, you might look into a plane ESC. They have been around longer and are cheaper. For example, this Kontronik controller is only $45 and can handle 12 cells. Not sure if the 45amps it can handle would be enough, though.
Also, I second the Triton recommendation.
