Wow, This is to much mAh. I'm running a Hyperion 7.4V 2100 mAh, what do you think ?

It really comes down to weight and run time. Want long runtime and can handle the weight then go big. Want light weight and can handle short runtimes, go small. Technically anything from 1500mAh to 10000mAh (2x 5000mAh in parallel) will work fine.

There is really no efficiency difference between the different lipos for use as RX packs. There are however different types like A123, LiPo and the Hyperion LiFePO4.

Yes, I've heard that the stock Align battery is not the best choice. I'll be getting a couple of replacements by the time I'm done with my build. Just don't know which one to get yet.
