I have a robbe najade that I built when they came standard with brushless. It was a Roxxy Inrunner 3656/06 - still available with CMB. From memory I use a 60a esc with the standard two 7.2v 5000mAh NI-MH batteries wired in series to give 14.4v

Very well. Well over scale speed so much so she can suffer from chine walk. Used to get about 40 mins out of it.
