So for the 1/8 scale I'm planning on building next year. I'm thinking of this motor and ESC combo. I'm planning on running 2,4s and sometimes 2, 5s battery packs for 8s and 10s.

Neu Motor 1527 1.5d 1500kv

Swordfish Pro+ II : 240A ESC with Data Logging: Up to 12s

Also can anyone recommend a BEC or would it be better to use a 6v battery pack for my receiver?

Thanks for any replies.
