What Size Lipo Battery Do I Need for My Hobby?

First, you should know how to calculate the current of a battery.

 Battery Current = Capacity * C Racing / 1000 

A battery current must be at lest equal to motor current.

E.g. Your airplane motor 4000KV draws 14amps

1000mAh 25C battery’ current is 25A (1000 * 25 /1000 = 25), enough for your plane.

Minimum size – 600mAh at 25C might just about be enough but give very short flights.

All in all, keep a close eye on the the battery parameters and dimensions before you buying them.
