Parallel hookup question.

So I am thinking about getting some glider/bixler type plane, and modding it to carry over 10k mAh of LiPos for extreme flight time. Could I possibly hook up two 3200mah 3s in parallel for a total of 6400mAh, and then hook up two 1800mah 3s LiPos for a total of 3600mah and than hook up those 4 packs (Now one 3600mah 3s and one 6400mah 3s) in paralell for a total of 10k mAh?

Lol it's kinda complicated, and I hope I worded it right.

Absolutely. Just make sure that all packs are roughly the same charge state prior to connecting in parallel.

Note that a 10,000mAh pack will be rather heavy and will most assuredly affect the flight characteristics of your plane.

The Mah doesn't have a affect on which batteries will connect to eachothers.
A 750mah can be paralleled to a 10,000mah and the only thing that will happen is you now have a 10,750mah battery.
Like stated above the voltage levels do need to be similar because they will self level and the strong will charge the weaker until they are at the same level, unles they are isolated which we don't do in RC.

With anything over 4,000mah in a EZ*,Bix I think you will need bigger than stock wings and at least 3-4 hours to spend flying it
