Default LIPO BATTERIES

I wanted to know what will be the better battery setup for my ofna spec 1e with the mamba 2200
1 6s battery
Or
2 3s battery?
And when you use two packs does you c rating double or does it remain the same?

Are they wired up in series or parallel? If series, the voltage is doubled. If parallel, the current capacity is doubled.

Do you want speed or run time? Voltage = speed, current = run time.

Will the Mamba handle 6s?

I would go with the 1 6s battery instead of 2 3s batteries because its less resistance and less wiring to deal with.

I was looking for speed... How do you wire a battery parallel and series?
And I noticed that the 3s had more c than a 6 s.....AND WHAT BATTERY DO YOU GUYS THINK IS THE BEST FOR SPEED?

This page does a pretty good job explaining the wiring.

So how much current do you really plan on pulling from the batteries?

As far as battery choice... that's a long discussion & been done several times. Do a little searching.
