anywhere from a 2650 to 3300mah, I use a 3000 30c for me it's a perfect balance for sport or 3D flight. I would suggest a minimum of 30c also it wont hurt for you to do a search in this forum, there is plenty of talk about what lipo's to use.

Scorpion 3026-1400 or 1600kv.
Castle ICE 75 / ICE 100 ESC

If you got the extra money grab a Jive LV80.

Also the stock 500MX motor and the Hyperion (rebranded Scoprion) motor work fine too.

Yup, they will work, but alot of people prefer the 3000 or 3300 6s batteries for the longer flight times. I'm going with 3000's cause I think from what I've read the power to weight ratio is the best.

Careful going with a larger mah lipo, you could have CG issues then. I use a 2650mah 6s lipo and it balances perfect. Although flight times are not my primary concern.

I only fly all my helis around 4 min with some hard stick banging. I need to find a perfect setup for me to be able not to bog my motor and have that power for the entire flight. ill try the 2650 40c 6s for now and see if those work for me. anyone doing hard 3d with the stock motor? i have that 100 ice esc hanging around. maybe i should use that on this bird.should i use the esc bec? or use an external?
