Default What batteries do u use? And would mine do the job?

I would like to know what batteries you guys use, and what flight time doyou get with them?
I'm at the "learing to hover" stage, so hover time is what I'm after.

And, I have two SPC3S 8000 mah for my E-Revo and Savage Flux. Could a make a harness to make them 6S and use them for my T-Rex 600?
And what flight time would I get from 8000mah?

8000 mAh 6S is a little on the heavy side. I'm sure it would be able to balance it out. If their hard case it'll be even tougher. W/ 5000 mAh I was getting 5 minutes of relatively hard flight and putting 70% or so back in the packs. When I ran 6s I used XPS 30C 5000's. Now I'm using a Castle/Scorpion combo on 8s using Turnigy 40c 5000's. This was done using two 4s packs in series. I can get 6 minutes of flight with a 2200 rpm headspeed and hard 3D and aerobatics putting 70% back in.

I was advised to use a 6S 5000mah battery for my HK 600. Plus a3S 850mah for the bec.What motor do you have? I'm going to try to use a Turnigy Typhoon 600.

Battery is also going to depend on your motor and esc. I was running stock Align electronics and I could pretty much ONLY use a 6s 5000mAh batt. I've since upgraded to a Scorpion 4025-1100 motor and Castle Ice 100 esc. I can run 8s with that motor. I could also go with one of the lower kv versions and run up to 12s. Since you're going with the Typhoon motor you're limited to 6s based on Hobby King's specifications.
