Default E-Flite 160 Battery Setup???

I have converted the seagul models 3D Bling to electric. I have an E-flite 160 and a Castle 110 HV ESC. I would like to see what recomendations anyone has for a battery setup. 9 or 10 cells.

I think you need to hook it to the National Power grid!

Sorry - I just saw one in the LHS and it seems so HUGE!:p

Convention would suggest 10 cells would be the way to go - higher voltage and lower amp draw seems to be the more efficient way to get the same power - lower amps will mean less waste heat.
