ok so i want to run two, 7.4 volt 4000 mah 10 c lipo batteries in my aquacraft super vee 27, the speed controller is a 45 amp 18 v, with the two batteries i was hoping to achieve 14.8 volts but after seeing your explanation i think there might be too much amprage. 4000 mah x 10 c = 40,000 which is 40 amps x the two packs means 80 amps? will this burn out my speed controller?
