say I want 6s 22.2 volts. I have 2 11.1 packs and add them in series... will this give me a total mah of both packs? or does it stay the same as one pack? also will it double the amount of discharge rate?

When you put batteries in series, you increase voltage. So your 2 11.1 packs becomes 22.2 volts. The mah rating remaines the same. Putting packs in parallel will increase the mah rating, and the voltage remains the same.

I meant to do that!

ditto,

Put two (two packs in series)in parallel and you are there, but you need four batteries.

Or you could by a 22.2 volt pack at the mah you wanted. But then you would be down to one pack.

The other option is to buy individual cells and build your own.

Along with all this goodness, keep in mind the added weight.

For example:

I added 2 2s packs to my CX, in parrellel, and found that my runtime increased only 20%. This is because the heli was working harder to carry the extra weight.

Just a thought.
