Default Best Batteries for Beam E4 V2 Advance

I searched this forum but did not find any current references. So let me pose the question: what batteries would you recommend for an E4 V2 Advance with ICE 50 and Scorpion 2221-8 with 14T pinion?

Not sure how the V2 compares to the old V1 version, but I have three of these and two of these. I had to go with a heavier pack to get my CG right since my ESC is mounted rearward of the main shaft. I like the Venom packs the best but of course they are a bit more pricey. I cut off the uni-connector on the Venoms also and installed XT-60's. I get 5 minutes of flight time running a 2221-6 motor with 11T pinion, but I don't fly that hard either.....lol.

I've heard nothing but good things about Gens Ace. I'll most likely pick up a few later. I'm currently running Hyperions G3-VX2200-3S, they've never let me down. After over 100 cycles, these packs are still solid!
