Default using higher amp esc? problem or not?

lets say I have 300 motor and 7.2V 2000mah battery.

I guess 10mah esc is recommanded.

if I use 30mah esc, what would be the consequence?

What you meant to ask was is a 30amp ESC ok to use in place of a 10amp ESC.

The answer is yes. The only penalty is extra weight but there may be many benefits.

One benefit is a cooler ESC for demanding 3D applications. Another is that sometimes certain ESC ranges are less money.

I have many applications where the ESC is much over-rated for the application and my power levels don't care about the little added weight.

On micro-flight applications, the additional weight is a higher concern.
