sugeested battery size for FT Bushwacker

#1
Hello
I am new to this forum and have a battery size question.
I just ordered 2 FT Bushwackers.
The suggested battery size is 3S 11.1V 1300-2200 mAh.
So weight versus battery life.
Should I lean towards the 1300 for best performance or does it still fly well on the 2200?
Or should I consider a middle spec battery in the 1600 range.
I would appreciate your consideration.
Thanks

The airplane will carry the 2200 without any problem. Get the highest C rating you can, 35 - 50 if you want longer flight times. Long prop low pitch.

The Bushwacker tends to be tail heavy unless built with elevator rudder servo is moved forward. I think you will find the 3S 2200 will balance it well if built as described.
