Thumbs up New X7 Owner - What Batteries?

I'm a new X7 owner, but not a 3D pilot. I'm curious to see what brand/size everyone is flying now?!

Like I said above I'm not a 3D pilot but still want something well capable of what the X7 brings.

Thanks All !!!

Pulse 5000 45C work well for me.

Love the X7!

Gens Ace 5300 mAh 30C...works perfect. Can't fly hard 3d myself, but some other pilots at our club used them for quite a while.
At some point one pilot started complaining that the motor would bog after 2 minutes of tic tocs

I would suggest the glacier 6s5300 packs from buddyrc since they're about the same weight as the higher 'C' rated 4500 packs.

Thanks Guys! I've been looking at both Pulse and Glacier and was ready to buy the Pulse today anticipating a 10% Presidents Day sale that never happened. Now the same Pulse batteries are $20 more each!

The Glacier price and weight definitely will probably win out here.

I'm ready to get this X7 flying!

Optipower, Gens and Pulse are the names i hear this days, at least where i come from.

I wouldn't buy anything else not for 20$ difference and even more - eventually you end up paying more (buy new batts sooner) for less performance.

and If it weighs less usually its because the C rating is not what it says. the 3 names above i known are what is written on them.

Pulse 5000 45C/Gens 5000 45C is my choice...

Optipower makes 30 and 50 true C rated packs in 5000 and 5300 variations. Top notch packs at great pricing.

Well....I went for the Glacier 45c 4400's. There were plenty of good reviews on them and the prices are awesome.

I'm using Gens Ace packs, like many at my field and they are great. I have only 4400mah because of weight but 40C would be fine if you aren't doing 3d. If you go 5000mah though these are great packs:
