Default Low C rated battery for Scale Flight

Hi,

I think I may know but this C rating is still confusing...and have to ask..

In a 450 Huey for scale type flying will a battery specified for multirotor use be suitable for a scale bird ?

assuming similar weight which would be better...and why .

4000mha 10C or 2800mha 30C

Also planning on using a 2221-12(2580kv) with a RPM +/- 2K with a 4 blade head

You must consider weight. Your 4000mAH pack might have the same effective power output as the 3200 but it is much heavier. You are far better off with batteries that are higher rated and lower capacity, like some 2500 35-50C batteries in a 450 size. A Huey fuselage is already pushing a 450 so don't flog it to death with an un-necessarily heavy battery. You may not even get it off the ground with much more than a 2750mAH pack. Good luck.
