Default Battery Recommendation, Skymaster Bae Hawk (1: 3.65 scale)

I'm setting up a Skymaster Bae Hawk (1: 3.65 scale), all servos (8) are HV
I need to leave the batteries for the receiver permanently on the jet.
I think my choice would be LiIon batteries.
I've been thinking about a couple of Fromeco 5200mAh LiIon or a couple of PowerBox PowerPak 5.0x2 Pro Battery 5000mAh
Will be enough ?
What would you recommend?

Thank you

depends on if you are using electric gear/brakes..

I would use 3 5200 for it.. two for the radio pack, and one for the gear/brakes. if I had to bury it.

Another ion option is the Jeti packs. you can parallel charge all three with one charge lead.

If you are going to add a bunch of accessories, then use a separate pack for that.. lights, cockpit..sound...etc In other words I use my receiver packs for driving servos and nothing else for big project like this.

Thank you

get the Jeti 5800 Lion safety first!
1 . no need for balancing
2 . they have a build in FUSE (125 amps) in the cell itself in case of a shortcut they just disconnect the whole pack.
3 . very Light
4 . they use Sony Cells....
