Default quick q, is there a beginners guide to brushless and lipo

Hi all, im getting back into electric on-road and wanted to get some beginner info on running brushless and lipo. Is there a guide online somewhere that has information on this. Yes i have searched, read a lot, but haven't found a nice straight forward thorough guide anywhere. some basic questions i have are, what is sensored vs sensorless brushless, what all the settings are on the esc, whats power boosting etc. what needs to be done to properly maintain a brushless motor. is kv related to the motor turns, or are these separate values? is there a chart for runtimes based on battery size and motor size?

Thanks, any help is appreciated

You'll have to do some looking around...I don't think there is one place for everything. You can try these places though:

I think this will be a very important thread especially brushed and BL counterparts.
