Default what size pack do I need for rx

I want to replace the battery pack on my nitro helicopter.It is a hirobo shuttle older version. I got it used and it looks like it sat for a while so i want a new rx pack for it. It has a 4.8v 600mah I believe. What would be a better pack for this? I basically just want a good recomendation on a new pack. thanx alot

600mAH nicad packs are still prettty much standard with most flight-packs but you might find it much better to go to a nickel-metal (NiMH) pack of the same physical size, since this will have a far greater electrical capacity.

You can get NiMH batteries built from AA-sized cells which have a capacity of over 2,000 mAH these days -- that'll give you three times the reserve of your original pack.
