Hello, I'm new to this forum and a new owner of a Arrma Senton 6s. I have a Senton on the way and I started buying batteries before I realized I didnt know what the minimum discharge rate was.

I ordered an SPC 4s Lipo 65C 6500 MAH, is that enough? Do I need to order 2 2S lipos 50c each or 2 3s Lipos 50c as well? Also can I mix and match 2s and 3s lipos as long as the C rating isnt over 100c?

Thank you for your help and suggestions in advance!

Okay, I've figured it out. I thought I was wrong with the math I was doing. amps = C rating x Capacity(mAH)
1000
I was wrong with my math, so the battery I ordered should work great with the new Senton I'm getting. If Im wrong please let me know. Thanks!

They'll both work. I say get anything over 50c rating and youll be fine any less and it wont have a good mid range pick up or burst to top speed

I got myself a "Giant Power" single 6s 5000mah 65C 130C burst. What a battery and nice n cheap too. I can see a night and day difference between 2 3s 5000mah 35Cs. The battery is too big to fit in the tray, I had to cut the end tabs and it just fits nice and snug between the end of bat case and the receiver. This helped me also realise how a sliding battery upset the handling of my car. It is very good consistent cornering now.

Schuey, how much run time are you getting from those batteries? I have been using two SMC 7200mah/90C 2S packs and it appears that those 3S packs are the exact same size.

I just ordered the SMC True Spec Premium 4s 6700mah 90c hard case pack. It should fit with plenty of room to spare and I think the 6700 should last for a good long while. I have 2 3s packs for now I run in series but I plan on running 4s for daily bashing.
