Default Thermic 50

Iím on the tail end of building a Thermic 50 I found on Craigslist a while back. I decided to make it a 2 channel (rudder/elevator). I have a radio/sub-micro servos. What battery pack should I use? Iíll need something small since thereís not a lot of room and I donít want to add a ton of weight. Ideas?

I used to take apart a Duracell 9V battery. Inside are 6 cells. I would remove 2 to make a 6V battery and solder a connector on. Good for 3 hours of flight time. You can of course buy a small LiFe battery but you also need the correct charger.
