assuming that you would like a bit more than a 1minute run...I'd use a 4s2p (a pair of 4s 4500mah or higher 25c packs).

so i'm wondering, does my c rating go up if i wire two batteries in series or parallel?

it goes up when in parallel
to simplify, parrallel increase Amp (C rating and capacity) serie increase Volt

in my 29" DF copy I have just a stripe of 3M hook and loop (Velcro) in the hull and same on each batt (2x2S in serie), each stripe is as long as the batt, can't move!
