I have seen up to 150g, (780g-930g), difference in weight in 6S 5000mAh packs. How critical is this in FAI style flying?

It matters. You're talking about auto'ing with as much as 1/4 pound extra weight with the heavier packs.

This is my first 90 electric, am I right in thinking 780-800g is about the lightest available today?

The TP 6s 25c 5000mah packs are as light as 706 grams, but they're definitely not easy on your wallet.
