I fly with those and have great results. I like 6s 5000mah packs in parallel so if/when a cell starts to go I'm out a pack and not a huge 10,000mah pack. Plus I usually remove 2 cells and make them into 4s packs.
I did the whole expensive Lipo route and with these Multis (low amp draw) there is little to no difference. Overall weight is the biggest factor nowadays. Power to weight ratio.
Now when you get into 12s heli setups lipos start having a big impact.
