What lipo battery should I use with a Rimfire 80 with a 15X8 prop?

Just installed a Rimfire 80 with a 15X8 prop in my Stinger 60. It weighs in at 9.5 lbs. This is my first electric set up and I replaced a well worn MDS 78. Would like a suggestion on a lipo battery and I believe I should be looking at 5 or 6 cells and around 4000Mah.

Yes you are on track for cell count per Tower Hobbie's Specs:

Input Voltage: 18.5-22.2V (5-6S LiPo)


The size in milliamps will be determined by you. Typically there are some "standard" sizes around 5000mAH in that range. The smaller the size, the shorter flight time, the larger the size the longer the flight time. But with larger packs comes more weight to carry. So it's a trade off.
