    OK my Shuriken 180 has 1806/2700KV motors with 20A esc. His brother the 180Pro has 2205/2750KV motors with 30A esc. Now i have a Kensun PDB with the Omnibus F4 V2 FC. I'm using my Xnova XTS RM 2204/2600KV motors but no esc. Should I use Little bee 20A esc or Little bee 30A esc on this set up. They're on sale. If i can make it fit, I'm going to put that set up in the 180 :).

    I always look at the 100% throttle and then the current (amps). But remember, this is with 5040 props and I think you are using 5045's which are going to draw a slight bit more, but you are not going to be a 100% throttle that often.
