Probably because a gear driven car can already be made more powerful than the tires can handle.

And the brakes are better on a gear driven car without adding a second servo.

i think you have to use seperate esc (specially made for rc plane) and seperate battery.. full throttle of a ducted dan will only able to go for the most 10 sec (average) as the fan pull out extreme voltage from the battery. the KV can go up to 9000 or more.

try visit some sites selling motors for rc plane. the setup is pretty much the same as EP car.
