2200ma 2 cell lipo. Voltage regulator set to 5.1 volts. I've had good luck with Castle Creations and Arizona regulators; avoid Turnigy.The older I get, the fewer things seem worth waiting in line for.

2200-2500 mAH.
Correct.

Average consumption for a raptor 50: 250 mAH per flight. (with stock glow tank)

2500/2 = 1250 mAH : capacity available for LIPO (50%).

Flying to 30% of remanent capacity. (from 4.2 volts per cell to 3.8 volts per cell)

1250*0.7= 875 mAH

Number of flights = 875/250

4 flights...

Good.

This is my calculation.

Other users said that lipo pack capacity is available 100% and not 50%.
Other users said they fly till 0% of lipo capacity, 3.7 volts per cell.

Hey...I forgot something...

Life... My kind of packs!

You may run this battery without regulator..! With HV electronic of course.

6.6 volts 2100 mAH

Average consumption raptor 50: 250 mAH

2100/250 : 8 flights.

It is really a "die hard" pack.

Lithium pack! Good choice also.
More safe operating that packs, by the way.

Duralite packs!
Very powerful lithium packs.
My last battery 2s2p 2900 mAH, last 14 years.
No complaints.

I would say any of the batteries you listed are a good choice
the main thing I would suggest is to find the battery
that will balance the heli with a 1/2 of tank of fuel

any of the batteries you listed with a minimum of 2000 mah will work fine
In one of my gassers I have a 5500 mah pack for balance
in a nitro I have a 2700 pack
it depends on the balance for me that determins what size I put in my heli's
ageing is manditory maturity is optional

Very interesting point of view.
Adding weight on helicopters is not critical. Most of the time it is a must to do that.

IMO, flight time determine the size of battery pack. Very easy to understand.
If you fly one time a day, you need a little pack.
If you fly a lot, you need a strong and heavy pack.

For heli balance, I use pieces of lead, old wasted NiCD/NiMH batteries or some arrangement inside the helicopter.

But anyway, it is always a good practice, to check costs to benefics whatever you do.
