Default what size packs for 800 AV rig.

Im just wondering what size packs people use in there large 700-800 size rigs.

Im going 12s so thinking 2 6s 5000s which id guess to be the norm but i did see some 8000mah 6s packs.

Im not sure if the extra weight will give a good return on an extended flight time

8000s 1200g and the 5000s are around 850g

I was running 5000 packs 12S setup on my 1000 and was getting 20min flights...

Added a second set to double the "gas tank" Now flight times are well past the 30 minute mark.
