"As long as you are using a standard ESC it doesn't matter what the size of the vehicle might be.

"Less than ten years ago this flight makes you realize how far we have come. Now you can buy the electronics here ready to fly. If you feel like flying across the Atlantic, you might want to read this first.
The story of the Atlantic flight"
