Question Top selling most popular battery size

What battery size would you say is the most popular (most often used) in terms of mAh and volts?
Disregarding brand names and airplane sizes.

In my experience, around 2Ah 3S packs. 1800 to 2200 11.1V packs are used in many many planes and helis.

Given how many of those Parkzone UM planes there are around I'd guess that these days 1S 100-150mAh batteries are pretty popular.

Yeah, considering also how fast those 1s 130mah and 160mah nanotechs sell out, this seems about right! They finally shipped me five of the 130's for my mustang, hope to get them this week sometime.

Otherwise, def 3S 1800-2200mah...

my best guess would be 1000mah to 1300mah 11.1v 20C that size fits a lot of Planes

Most of my planes use 4 cell 4000mah batteries, second in line would be 3 cell 2200mah.
