    Yes you can. They are rated at 2-4s, which refers to the cell count of the lipo battery. Each cell is worth 3.7v, so 2s is 7.4v, 3s is 11.1v, 4s is 14.8v etc.

    Hi Max I own the bar that Drizzlebots sell & bought a DYS1806 motor & 12A Afro ESC to go with it. Both weapons have the same 9-16mm channels & I can attach the bar directly to the motor.
