Default What lipo with 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.?

Why not use a 2cell A123/LiFe pack instead, without a regulator. All my aircraft are equipped with LiFe Rx batteries. Unless all of your electronic components are capable of 8.4v operation, there is no reason to use 2cell LiPos with a regulator. I used to before I started using LiFe.

If you must use LliPos, I use Turnigy and Zippy with all of my electric aircraft. I have not had any problems with them.
