i have read the thread about selecting motors and esc and rating
still doubt
but at brushless motor  online store-THIS IS THE RATING GIVEN

 KV : 1300KV rpm/v
Weight : 38.3g
Propeller-Inch : 8x4/8x3.8
ESC : 15A
Voltage : 2-3S
--------------------------------------------
  so what will be the battery rating    2S or 3S
also what will be the (current)milliamps required


also we should select ESC>15A       
will ESC 20A is ok

Voltage 2s-3s :  This means you need to select a lipo that is either 2cells (7.4v) or 3cells (11.1v).

ESC 15A: This means you need an ESC that is rated to 15 amperes of current.  Higher is OK.

Well, the rating is 2000maH i.e. 2000ma for 1 hour (i.e 2amps for 3600 seconds) so theoritically, you can reduce the time and increase the amps. In addition you get the battery rated as 15C  or higher. This means that the battery is capable of supplying 15 times the rated current. In this example, 2amp x15 = 30 amps. So do your maths to figure out how long the battery would last while supplying a 30amp current.

The final figure is dependant on the motor. The motor has a max AMP rating. Choose a ESC that is 20% higher and a battery with enough 'C' rating to supply that current.

The link posted earlier, http://www.rcindia.org/batteries-and-chargers/introduction-video-for-lipo-batteries/, also has an external link to the following external site, which is a great resource on such questions.

http://www.rchelicopterfun.com/rc-lipo-batteries.html

The key is that there is also something known as "C" rating (otherwise known as "discharge" rating) for each lipo, which also plays a vital part in this.

you can use your nokia batteries on mobile phone which have a small current drawn. you need to get lipos rated for high current rating before you start.
you really do need to do some googling and reading up . there is all the information available on this site and others.
Since you have visited an online store, suggest you put the nokia batteries where they belong - in the phone , call up and spend ten minutes speaking to the online shop person. they are very knowledgable and the advise is for free.
discuss what you are looking for.
if you are interested inb RC flying as a hobby, start off with a ready to fly model. building can come later after you get some experience.

It looks like just a model numbering scheme used by Nokia.
