A sort of quick way to look at the 15c vs. 30c
De-rate by 25-50% for a realistic current draw.
Is the battery current at 50% of the C rating adequate for
the continuous motor current?
Does the maximum short term motor current draw exceed 75% of the C rating?
That sort of establishes the minimum battery capacity.
Then, it's time to consider flight times.
Five minutes is usually considered close to the minimum desired flight time.
