    Can I run an AE5 ESC with,
    Dual 27T motors on 2S
    Dual 35T motors on 2S
    Dual 27T motors on 3S
    Dual 35T motors on 3S
    Also what kind of gearing would I have to run?
    Currently have have a 14/87 with a single 27T

    Thanks

    id do the 2 35t on 3s ..... because one 35t on 3s is an awesome setup .... alone with stock gearing .
    and 2 27t in parallel can max draw the esc if bound to rotor lock ... well almost they will pull approximately 90 amps @ rotor lock and full throttle .... the esc is around 100 amps max ... so it is kind of pushing the limit .... the 35T will draw less amps ...
    .
    motors have internal Resistance based on the length of wire inside them ... the higher the T ( turns of wire ) the more resistance they have ... therefore reduce the amps that can pass through .
    .
    so 2 35t motors in parallel will cut the resistance to half of one motor . doubling the amp draw to what a single 17.5 t motor would have . still above the 15t minimum
    .
    2 27t motors in parallel will = 13.5t amp draw ..... below the minimum t limit ..........
    .
    now if you wire the motors in series it will go the other way . and either combo will be safe to run .
    but it will be slower ... and if either motor hangs up they will both stop .
    .
    parallel is the better setup ...... then if one motor gets stuck the other will usually pull the stuck motor through and get it running again .

    yup 115.5 amps ........3500 mah X .001 X 35C = 115.5 Amps
    .
    that battery will be great :)
