You really didn't give enough information like Kv, number of turns,etc. But as a range you probably need a 30-35 amp esc and a 6-8 cell (7.2 -9.6 volt) battery pack. whether direct drive or geared and prop size also factor in.

Hey Guy ( or gal) don't give up so easily. I'm a totally self-taught e-flyer. My profession has a lot more to do with words than electrons.
