I’d like to get some opinions on batteries for my Diabolo 700UL.

My style is medium 3D.

My preference is to keep it light. My goal is less than 11.5lbs (5.2kg) ready to fly with either 12s 3700’s or 4100’s with a flight time of at least 5-6 minutes at 1700-1800HS

I have some old Gens Ace 4000’s I was going to try, but wanted to take advantage of a discount I was offered right now and my L won't be ready in time.

Build is:

-HKIII 4035-560 (because I have one, new in the box)
-Scorp Tribunus 130A 12s
-R2 Super Buffer
-Mikado NEO
-VTX 697 / RT 106
-Standard Tail Pulley
-6mm 18t pinion
-MKS HBL665’s - cyclic
-MKS HBL 880

So the choices are:

Pulse 3700's (2x6s) Or Pulse 4100's (2x6s)

What would you do?

Any and all input is greatly appreciated!

Diabolo 700UL / Logo 700 / 600 / 500 V-Bar NEO / Oxy 2 / Blade 180CFX / mCPX BL / Nano / V-Control

Remember, you are near the windy-city so you may wish to go with the 4100's (a small amount of weight will not really hurt the MiniCopter designed Heli).
How much difference is there in the weight between the two different pack sizes when they are configured in the 12S type packs (?)

The 2 3700's are 1116g combined

The 2 4100's are 1220g combined

The reason I'm questioning this so much is that I had a Logo 600SE that I ran Gens Ace 12s 4000's on (forgot the weight) and they were a bit too heavy for it, but I flew them anyway (can't exchange packs). I wished I had went 3700-3800.

I just don't want to make that mistake again by buying 4100's (I'm making 3 battery trays) and have my new 700UL end up feeling slightly too heavy... wishing again that I would have went lighter on the packs.

I guess I'm leaning towards the 3700's just so I know there's no way it will feel too heavy (even if it is a little windy here).

Thoughts?

Thanks Hilliheli.
