Hi, I just recived a lot of RC-stuff from a company.

Among the drone stuff I got a couple of these https://hobbyking.com/en_us/ntm-prop-dr ... 2400w.html

Also a couple of ESC, these are for model airplanes and drones. Among them, these

and these

I also got a couple of 6S batteries with a capacity of 10-12,5 AH each.

Now I wonder, can I use anything of this to propell myself? A longborad sounds like a death trap, but maybe put it on my bike or build a small moped?

I figure that the batterys will work, also the motors If I build something small or maybe use more than one? But the ESCs, will they work at all? Or will i be standing still with at jittering motor? But Im all for using what i got and save money rather than spend on other stuff. What do you pros think?

That's a high KV motor, at 22v you're getting around 6000rpm, 30v tops 8000rpm. Some serious reduction is needed. People using RC controllers tend to see them burn up.
