Says right in the listing: "20C or above discharge rate Lipo battery is recommended."

 

With THREE of those motors running at once you could hazard that you need 60C as an assumed minimum, but that's not always a given since you may be dividing the stall load amongst them so your potential peak draw is unknown.

 

If you can't do the relevant math to figure out what is required for THREE of those motors then it's not a good idea to just buy random parts and hope they work. If you wanted to know a specific answer to this question it would be best for you to ask the manufacturer of this motor what they recommend, or ask the seller.

 

Also read up on what "C" ratings mean.

 

 

Here's the easy way to find your battery's discharge rate just multiply the number from the C rating by the pack's capacity. Keep in mind that 1000 milliamps equals one amp. Here's an example, using an 11.1V 2000mAh 10C

11.1 volt 2000mAh -10C
2000 milliamps = 2 amps
2 Amps x 10 = 20 amps continuous discharge

This means that you can safely draw up to 20 amps continuously from that 11.1V 2000mAh 10C without doing damage to your battery.

Yeah some people say that 1c=1a but i saw that equation and i wasn't sure which was right.
