    Is this for racing, or sport running? It matters because of racing rules. Running 8S a Leopard 4092/700 Kv or a 5692/730 would work well for general use and give decent run time for most. Other motors and voltages are possible, depends on what you want.

    Speed?
    Run time?
    Budget?

    For safety, minimum 200 amps.
