This is for a battle robot in the hobby-weight class (5.44 Kg max)
I want to drive the robot using 2 cordless drill motors rated at 14.4 volts. I have 4S LIPOs which means I have 4 x 3.7 volts or 14.8 volts. So far so good.
The problem is that I bought 2 ESCs and only afterwards noticed that they are rated for 2-3S (or max of 11.1 volts).
So my question is am I likely to damage the ESC if I use my 4S LIPOs instead of 3S LIPOs?
Or should I just buy 3S LIPOs and live with the reduced performance?
