But I have to ask, what specific model number of the Rimfire 1.6 did you get? I just looked one up and it is only capable of max 5S. 6S may burn it up if it's the same as the chart I just looked at. And if you use two batteries, you would do them in parallel to keep the same voltage but double the mAh (so 6S 10,000 mAh). Putting them in series would be 12S 5000.
Yep that's the same motor, and I did see the 5s max. i'll downsize the batteries, and is the HV 120 a good choice or should I go with a 90 to 100 amp esc, like the instructions on the motor suggest?
