Single-battery or parallel connection?

Hi guys, what do you think suits me better for a multirotor - two 2200mAh 3S 25C batteries in parallel? Or one big 5000mAh 3S 20C for the same price?

On my own consideration - a single pack is simpler and has slightly more capacity, while a double pack means that if I crash or burn one battery I may still save the other one.

What do you think?

They cost roughly the same after shipping. ($30,96 for the big one vs $29.35 for the small ones with a parallel adapter)

International (Registered) Air Mail 751g - 1kg $17.95

[TD="colspan: 2"]Taxes[/TD]

$0.00

[TD="colspan: 2"]Total[/TD]

$66.38



The price of each battery comes out at $13.48 which is fairly good compared to the local $30 of a re-sold version of the same battery! :p

I was going to add money to my prepaid credit card, but it turns out that I can not do more than two deposits per month! I am currently gathering the requirements to open a real bank savings account, and link it to an international debit card to link with paypal. For those who are curious, $100 is the opening amount.
