Default What lipo for jr rx?

I am trying to get my nose & total weight down so I'm wanting a small lipo that I will have spares of ready to swap out. I'm running 8 JR 8711 servos (4 used for flt controls) , a gyro, and 2 jetronic air valves via JR DSM R1221X2.4 with regulator. I fly about 7 minute flts. Anyone have any good experienced advice, as far as 2s or 3s, mah, watts , c#, mfg, etc.?

Hi,
I converted over to 2S LiFe packs a few years ago and am very pleased. Runs at about the same voltage as a 5cell Nicad or Nihm. No voltage regulator needed in most current receivers or servos.

Worth a consideration and naturally your charger will need to be capable of LiFe packs.

Hyperion's range from 850mah to 3800mah.
