Depends on the maximum current capacity of the battery. Pick one that will not draw more current than the battery can safely supply at full charge.

There are many motors that will run on a 3cell LiPo and many that will not. The motor will be driven by an Electronic Speed Controller. You need to look at the specs on the ESC and Motor to determine what is the maximum Current and Voltage that they can handle. A 3cell LiPo charges to 12.6v. The Motor you choose depends upon the aircraft you are going to put it in. The Diameter and Pitch of the Prop you choose determines how much Current you will be drawing.

If you are flying an ARF, you can usually find info on what Motor, ESC, and Battery to use from either the manufacturer or from threads on various forums that are focused on that particular aircraft.

I have some flat foamies that can run on 2cell or 3cell LiPos. The 2cell LiPo is lighter but provides less power. The Capacity of the LiPo determines the Duration of the flight.
