Default ESC and LiPo

It's been a while since I've dealt with battery votages and ESC's so I'm drawing a blank here...

Quick question- Can I run my 2200mAh 4S 20C packs with an E-flite 30-Amp Pro ESC without ending up with a melted pile of foam and servos that used to my Parkzone T-28 or Typhoon 2? According to themanual the ESC is rated at 30A continuous and a peakof 35A.I currently fly 2200mAh 3S 15C with it but since I've recently purchasedsome 2200 4S to run in parallelwith another model I was wondering if I could use those on my park flyers.

If the ESC is rated for 4S lipo, then you can use 4S lipo!

You still have to stay under the ESC's current rating, of course, but you can do that by checking with a wattmeter and using a smaller prop if necessary.
