In my opinion the sweet spot for the S800 is a single 6S 8000 30C from HobbyKing. With the Z15 and 5N on board I still get 15-18 minutes of hovering for AP work. I had the battery plugged in for about 30 minutes of flying up and down and then physically moving the copter to a new spot to take off. I was very happy with the results. Having 4-5 of these charged and ready to go should be more than enough for the average shoot. Hell the sorry ass battery on the Sony 5N barely lasts an hour of use anyways.
