Default Battery size help

I need to get a bigger battery for my scaler. It'll have a 35T motor, CC sidewinder, and a CC BEC connected to a 7955. I was wondering how many mah I should be looking for. I know it'll be a 3s lipo, I just don't know how many mah. I'd like an hour or two run time at least.

I'd say you probably want somewhere around 3300 or 4000. The issue going too high is it makes the battery bigger and you start to lose the effective of the weight savings with the lipos. I have several 3300's and. 4000's and although I'm running 13.5 brushless I'm good for an hour or more without to much work.

Overall running will depend some on your gearing and what your running terrain wise.

Good luck

That's what I was thinking about getting. My limit was 5000mah, after that they get expensive and way to big. I'll just have to go on google and see what options there are in the 3-4000 range.
