Retro jet batteries

I just built one of these and really liked how it went together. If we hadn't just gotten 4 feet of snow in the past week I'd be flying it. My question is about the recommended battery - 6S 2200. Since I have very few 6S batts I was thinking of getting some more. Yes, I can use 2 3S 2200 but I was curious if anyone had any experience with larger capacity batts. If I'm going to buy a couple of 6S for this plane I'd like to maximize flight time but I thought I would ask what others have found the trade offs to be carrying additional weight. 3300 or 4000 look like they would physically fit but will add considerable mass over the spec.
