Default Got a question

Ok so, I havent done any dealings with lipo batteries in many , many years. I have a brushless esc that can handle handle a 2-3s lipo. It is a 80w esc. Was thinking about going to a 3s 11. Question is, what should the c rating be? I can get a 5000mah 50c lipo for cheap. Wpuld this be a good decision? Is a 50c too much for my esc?

50c is the safe discharge rate. You only have to worry about whether it's too little. If your ESC can only draw 80W (11V x about 7A), that's closer to 1.5C on a big battery like that.

The ESC will suck all the juice it can at full throttle, but no more. You'll be fine.
