Battery Size
« on: October 14, 2017, 08:20:13 AM »
Hi guys.
Can anyone let me know what the dimensions of the "battery compartment are? Im close to pulling the pin on a 516 but first i need to make sure i can get Lipos for it here in New Zealand... The choice is VERY limited.

Thanks

Size is also dependent on weight. A heavy long pack will hit the inside of the canopy and not cg as well, while a lighter short pack will have more of its weight forward. What are your options? We might be able to help you out better knowing what options you have.

The only consistant options here are either Revolectrix (my #1 option) or yukky old Turnigy/Hobbyking... other than that its all a bit pot luck. Looking at packs around 4400
