Going Brushless

I have a Fiego brushless and a Pheonix 10 on the way for mine. What battery pack should I get? Stick with the 2 cell 700 or what works best?

Well i'm also going to go with the Feigao Brushless/Pheonix10 and use a 2cell 1200 mAh but i'd like to get a 3cell 11.1v 1200mAh which i think would work better with my ducted fan system i'm going to put on the PCW. Anyway i'd also like to know what a good battery would be for the Feigao Motor on the PCW.
Has anyone tried the Feigao motor on the pcw ????

I need to know what battery and what prop works good with the feigao. Surely somebody has this all figured out to make it easy for me

2cell w/ GWS 3x3 works. I don't know about 3cells. That might put it over current.

I have not kept it up long enough for LVC, but it is better than 30 minutes.
I just switched to a 4.5x4 gws prop, so the time will go down some, but the performance went up. 20 minutes is plenty for me with this plane.

I flew it this morning. The PCW flew for about 25 minutes. It was slowing a bit, so I landed it before LVC.
