Default Batteries for scale

Hey there people, is there a certain brand of battery which is better for scale use or is it a case of what ever fits. I use Turnigy batteries with 40 plus C ratings because its what I have always used on my helis regardless of them being scale or pod & boom. I am up for some new batteries soon as some are becoming a bit more puffy than normal and thought I would ask the question first before I bought more Turnigy batteries. Thanks in advance guys and happy flying.

Generally scale flying (not aerobatic flying in a scale heli) does not require high C rated lipos. I have been using the same basic blue Turnigy 5000mAH 25C 6s for years without any problems at all.

Even 20C would be OK for a HV setup. If it is a larger heli running 6s, then higher C ratings may be required. Just buy lipos that suit the size requirements & the budget - nothing exotic required.
