If you are using brushed motors, like speed 400s, you can hook both to one speed control assuming the ESC and the battery can handle the curretn load.

If you are using brushless motors, you must use two ESC. Then you would need a Y harness from each ESC to the battery, assuming the battery can handle the current load.

Read my post again. If the battery will take the load you can run both motors off one battery. If the battery can take the load. Otherwise you need two batteries.
