Default Best Batteries for BVM 12s EDF

Hey BVM edf users. I need to order some 6s pacts that will fit in my BVM T-33 with BVM 12s fan unit. I cannot use 3 4cell packs due to my scale cockpit. I must stick with two 6s packs one on either side of the fan where the old glow saddle fuel tanks went. I want the best batteries with the most capacity and c rating and largest amp rating that will fit in the space next to the fan. Which batteries are considered to be the best performing ? I can build my own packs if need be but I don't know who to buy the best cells from. Thanks

My 12S jet uses OptiPower but their distributor here just went belly up, I'm running 2 sets of 6S 5000 50c in a Roban A10

Anything around 60C or better and you want at least 6600 to the 7700 packs if you want to go longer then 3 to 4 mins. Dinogy or TP Rampage, Jetwerx, etc..
I have that system in my BVM T33

First off, how many amps does it pull? 60c is a waste of dead weight if your not pulling the kind of amps that C rating requires. I just bought 4) 6s 6250s from Roaring top RC. So far they seem to work well and at a good price... check out Mcguyss battery test thread and see what he is finding.
