If you connect the two positives to each other and the two negatives to each other you will get 3s 2p. To do this you would need a 'Y' wiring harness for positive and one for negative. This will give you twice the capacity with the same voltage.

If you connected the negative of one too the positive of the other this will give you 6s 1p which will double the voltage and leave the capacity unchanged. The remaining positive and negative go to the speed controller.

Two packs connected in parallel ( + to + ) increases capacity (mAh)
two packs connected in series (+ to - ) increases the voltage (V)

What is the application?

I think this heli uses 6s. You can purchase 6s packs without having to mess with connecting two 3s packs together. Unless you have them for a t-rex 450 or similar already. If you do need to connect two 3s packs you want to connect them in series so its the + of one too the - of the other and the remaining two wires go too the ESC.

CC Phoenix HV45 ESC and hacker a40 motor or similar would work. I have no experience with either of them!

Maybe try the search option and see what others are using.

If you are using 3s Lipos you already have make sure they are the same type and capacity (mAh). Otherwise one could discharge more than the other and become damaged!
