If you follow OldNoob's rule of thumb, you'll be looking at a battery capable of discharging the motors combined stall current, plus 20% for a safety buffer. Neo Rhino's stall at 22.2A each so total you're looking for something with a burst rating of 80A. The way to work that out will be to look for a battery where (MaH/1000)x(C rating) = 80.

Use hobbyking.com's lipo finder here

Put in the maximum measurements your battery tray will fit and find a battery that'll at least meet that magic number.

Good luck!

I like the 1000Mah LiHv for general primary stryfe use. I always use a tray expander as well, only pistol stryfes with lower power consumption motors should run anything smaller than that pack.
