Default My new eXo on the way !

So after looking at these machines for months I've finally jumped in and joined in the fun ordering a new Green Kit with Rage from Compass Australia. Love my Warps and imagine this Heli is going to be as good and then some !!
Now I'm looking at Packs for it ? I have a couple of 3000mAh which I imagine are on the small size. Would 4000mAh be a better size for this machine ?
Flying big-air Sport , will I get away with 30C Packs ? Can pick some up on sale at present but usually go for higher C ratings than 30. I'm hoping to have to only run moderate Head speeds so maybe 30C would be enough.
Anyone like to share their experience regarding suitable Packs ?

Hey dude!
Welcome to the exo club! You will love the way this thing flys OMG!

I have been using my 6hv ULT packs 3300 45C which gives me 2.45min hard flying and 3min decent 3d. 4000 30c is plenty enough and I would say perfect- the heli can fit a 5000 pack in it

I know im comparing apples and oranges but my experience is 20C packs work only for 2000rpm headspeed flying while 40C just work but in my case i fly 12S 1800mAh packs with a 500KV motor.
My setup is equal in capacity to 6S 3400mAh.

EDIT.
Get 4 minutes if i smack it at 2350rpm headspeed.

I get three minutes out of my 3300 mah pack. Going to 4000 would be better for hard 3D and will get you around 4:30 (depending on motor, esc, headspeed, etc.) for sport flying.

Whatever you choose for batteries you wil be impressed with the authority and how presice these heli fly.
It can be whatever you wont it to from slow and calm to angry and fast and all the way between it and whatever flying style you choose it will allways be presice.
Congratulation!
