    Default Updating Miss Geico Battery Placement

    Figure I'd give it a try and put 6S 5000mah 70C batteries in the Sponsons. Looks doable just need to add more padding around the batteries and maybe a Velcro strap. I like the room and also how it cleans up the battery tray. Maybe add a second battery for a bilge pump.

    Its a good idea. I run my CNHL 6s packs in the sponsons on my Geico V2, and it definitely helps to get more weight forward. I moved both ESC's forward on the plastic tray by about four inches and secured them with servo tape and zipties to give me more room to get the batteries forward, as the ESC battery connectors have short cables and wouldn't let me put the packs far enough forward where I wanted them. I dont use any straps, just foam pieces to hold the packs in snugly and it works better than straps

    Thanks and nice setup, I really like the quad inlets and outlets too.

    That's how I ran my Zelos. Helps get the weight forward when you're approaching triple digits.
