Default Battery recommendations for Joker3?

I need a set of batteries for my Joker3, I've had this heli for a while but haven't flown it yet but this season it's time to get it air born

I have a Xera 4030 motor, had a Jive 80HV but sold it and are looking to get something compliant with Vbar governor so it wil most likely be a YGE or maybe the new Kosmik 160 (if it's vbar compliant).

So what batteries would you recommend?
Shall I stay with 12s or maybe use 14s instead?

How much mAh is needed for normal flying and light 3d to get at least 5min of flying, 7min would be good.

I use 12S stick packs on mine 4200 45C Desire Power and get around 5 mins light 3D with plenty of power - the TP 65C 5000 would also fit and give plenty of zoom although you don't need this high rated a pack - I have used 35-65C all with good results.

I use 2x6S 5000mAh and 6000mAh on my Maxi Joker. The 6000's are a very tight fit

Like mercuriell, I use 2x 3800-4200 6S packs and get 5-6 minutes of light 3d. TP and turnigy 5000 6S will fit but it is a little right to get the straps on.
