Default jet cat p-80se battery

I have a jet cat P-80se. i'm currently using a thunder power (25 c) 7.4 volt 2800 lipol battery. is the 25c discharge rating enough for the ECU. Or should I consider a higher "C" discharge rating. thanks again for y'all advice.

If it’s gas start more than enough. If it’s the external Kero start a higher C and capacity would be better.

2800 25c can deliver 70 amps. I don't think you need a high C battery to run a turbine, I run air soft batteries on my kingtechs

i have noticed over a long period of time, my 25c thunder power has swelled a little but. not sure if that's because of over use, I'm working the battery to hard or just an old battery.
