Default Is this battery able to power this speed controller

Hello,

I'm very new to RC and wondering if this battery will be able to power this speed controller. And if i connect it up correctly should the ESP make a sound?

The forum wont let me attach photos so ill just write what i see on the components.

ESP: Twister R/C brushless speed controller 7.4v-14.1v, 25 amps BEC.
LiPo Battery: GN-402545, 350mAh, 25C, 7.4V, 2.59Wh.

Thanks

It depends the motor and setup of the car. The ESC only draws the current that the motor draws.

25C-250mAh is way too small of a pack unless this is for maybe a 1/28 car perhaps?

It sounds like this either for a small drone or helicopter.

Yes. This is for a helicopter. But I'm not sure if the ESC is actually working. If i connect the battery to the ESC should it make a sound or any indication that it is actually working? Or is the battery too weak to even turn the ESC on at all?

I did some quick searches but didn't find much on the ESC (granted, I wasn't trying that hard). However, the batteries I have purchased are basically shipped with a storage charge. That is enough of a charge to power an ESC to do configuration.
