ESC,Battery,Motor selection for quadcoter

Hi, I am a beginner to build a quadcopter. so please help me in selecting ESCs , lipo Battery and Motor to make my own. I details of the parts are listed below :

Brushless Motor :
Brand: Racerstar
Item name: BR2205 2600KV Brushless Motor
RPM/V: 2600KV
Height: 31.5mm
Width: 27.9mm
Shaft diameter: M5
Motor mount hole size: M3
Weight: 28 grams
Voltage: 2-4S
Battery: 2-4S lipo battery
Max.current: 23.2A
Max.power: 710W
Internal resistance: Ω
Usage: for 250 260 280 Multirotor Frame Kit

Lipo Battery :
Brand : Lion power 
Configuration :  3S 11.1v
Maximum continuous discharge rate : 30C
Capacity : 4200MAH

Sustaining Input Voltage: 6-12V
BEC Output Current: 5V/3A
Continuous Output Current: 30A
Max Current: 35A/12s

 I just tested a brushless motor mentioned above with the esc and battery while the motor is running for about 10 seconds the esc is burnt.So is to possible to build a quadcopter with the parts listed above please help.
Thank You

  • ok i wil try 

    thanks for reply

  • You have a large number of variables to consider, and each choice you make will effect the other issues, and your final results.  You cant make an useful decision on any of these issues with a table provided with a motor, and understand the effect on the battery temperature.

    I highly recommend you go to ,read the help screens, and get familiar with the variables you need to input.  Only then can you propose a package of components,  see the calculated flight time, current draw, max speed, and then see the effect of minor changes, like, what happens if I use a higher pitch prop? of a larger prop?

    Without this type of analysis you only guessing and will likely burn out more components. Understand, I'm not being critical, I just made lots of mistakes in the past and don't want to see others follow the same path.

  • There is a Quadcopter frame, lipo battery, motor and propeller size matching t..., it shows different size frame should match which motors, lipos and propllers.
