I have no idea what ECS means, but ESC stands for electronic speed control.

I may be wrong but someone will correct me if I am.:D:D But the 200, 300, 400, 450, 480 designations were sizes of brushed motors. I think it had to do with the diameter of the can. The new brushless motors with these designation means the power output is similar to the 300 or 400, etc sized brush motors. Hope this helps.

Jeff is the guy at "Heads up RC"....Very helpful to many people here.

Larger motors are for larger planes....they require larger ESC's and Larger batteries....

Motor selection should be carefully done for each plane considering weight, and needed power etc....

Look at E-flights motors...they detail the weights of models appropriate for each of their models...Then choose whatever manufacturer you like after you get an understanding of the motors.

Here is an example of a 370 size brushless outrunner.

Read the specifications to get an idea of the recommendations.:)

LIghtner, I would suggest you go to this thread (http://www.wattflyer.com/forums/showthread.php?t=31368) and it will answer most of your questions. Ed has put together a lot of good information.

Heads Up RC is a vendor which sells lot of electric components or our airplanes. The easiest way to find his site or any others it to do a search on Google or any other search engine.

Hope this helps.
