One cell gives you 3.7 volts, so 3s is 11.1, 4s 14.8 etc the higher the mAH will give you longer flight times. As far a discharge rate you want to get a rate of 15c or better for good performance

I once choked a smurf to see what color it would trun

If you get a ThunderPower 4S 5000mah extreme pack, you should be good... I don't know for sure tho... might wanna take this question into the Swift forum since I don't fly swifts... I'm a TRex boy myself...
