    Question Thick Battery Holder?

    My question got buried in another thread, so I'll ask it in a separate post:

    I just bought an SMC 3s lipo, 8000 maH. It seems about double the thickness of a "standard" lipo.

    Would this battery hold down extension work for it:

    I can't find dimensions on it.
    Don't buy lipos from a "scratch and dent" sale.

    I'm pretty sure it will as I have the same one and it accomodates two 2s packs on top of each other with room to spare.

    Located on page 12 of the manual.

    Battery Compartment Specs:
    • 166mm (6.54") long x 49.5mm (1.95") wide
    • Height with stock strap: 23mm (.91") or 25mm (.94")
    • Height with Part #5827X options battery standoffs: Up to 44mm (1.73")

    Note: There is some flex with the battery strap. It is possible to fit slightly taller batteries in the compartment.

    Thanks folks - the battery is 40mm high, so should be perfect!

    I have that part on my 11.1 3s 5400mah. It is a fat battery. It has room for a bigger lipo. It should work just fine for you.
