I think it depends on the motor and prop combo you are running. A high KV motor and a small prop won't get enough amps from a 2 cell to run well, and hand launching will be a real bear to get up to speed quickly enough.
You may get away with a lower Kv motor (more torque), and bigger prop with a 2 cell battery as the Mirage is a delta wing, and delta wings are known to have much better low speed qualities than an F16. It will probably be marginal though, and take-offs will be sluggish. Save up the money and buy a 3 cell, it will be worth it- you can fly slow or fast using your throttle! Have fun and good luck.
