I re-read this thread and now I was wondering if I can just have my motors run at about 10A. I think this will help me in finding a cheaper and smaller C rated battery, as a high C would mean a high discharge rate… correct me if I’m wrong…
I’ve been reading around the internet, and I learned that my motors will not always be drawing 25A, its maximum rated current. It may only draw even just 10A. I think this is good news, because this means I can get a battery with a Ah*C of about 60A. But please read on…
I also found this on a site: http://www.modelairplanenews.com/choosing-a-motor-speed-control-battery-pack-taking-the-mystery-out/
To know how your motor’s operation meets its manufacturer’s specifications, you must know several important numbers: current (amps), voltage (volts) and power (watts). One of the best ways to do this is with a Super Watt-Meter from AstroFlight. Plug this meter between the battery and the ESC, and you’ll be able to monitor what your power system is doing.
This is important for two reasons: first, every motor, ESC and battery operates at a specific maximum allowable current measured in amps. Exceeding their limits could soon the burn out motor, the ESC, or the battery. Even running the system at slightly above the maximum specified current could cause any or all three of your electrical components to fail prematurely. Prop size is among the variables that affect the flow of current through a system. A larger prop will pull a higher current from the battery through the ESC and make the motor run hot. Second, use the meter on your flight system to determine the best prop size to obtain the maximum recommended the motor wattage without overworking all of the electrical components. It allows you to maximize your plane’s power, at least, with that electrical system. The Watt-Meter is a worthwhile investment.
This is where I was worried about the amperage and its role in the quad, in terms of destroying it. With a high C rating the current discharge is way above the rated specs on my parts. So maybe a 2200mah 25C LiPo, like http://www.banggood.com/YW-11_1V-2200MAH-25C-Lipo-Battery-for-RC-Model-p-1014379.html?rmmds=search would suffice, if my idea is correct?
