Well, in basic terms the 'C' rating is the discharge rate of the battery. With the discharge rate and the 'mah' rating of the batteries you can more or less determine how many amps your battery will 'put out' to your motor. I'm sure others will be able to explain a little better than me

As to your second question, I'm not entirely sure what you are referring to. You have a 2s 1000mah lipo pack?

Thats the discharge rate. The higher the more punch you will get from it.

Example: 5000mah 2s lipo- 1c=5amps. 5amps X 20c=100amps

So a 1000mah 2s lipo 1c=1amp 20c X 1amp=20amps

The c rating is based on the mah of the battery. Mah divided by one. Hope this helps, I just buy the highest rated packs I can afford, the higher c generally = higher performance all around.

Google it for a very detailed explanation.

Typically when you go up in mah and c the batteries do get bigger.

not always though.you can buy a low c rate on a big battery. (not that you would want to) you can get 5000mah batteries anywhere from 20c and up
