    The Velcro side is roughly 5.75" long and the other side is around 6.75" (end to end). I melted a small hole with my iron towards the end and pinched them under the battery trays with the tray's screw going through the melted hole.

    And it just pulls tight against the drive shaft housing and not against the shaft?

    Yeah too tight and the bearing holder in the back starts to poke the lipos more than I like. A thin metal shield could be taped on the lipo at that spot to spread the pressure out. I just don't pull it real tight back there.

    Google Translation.......

    Just ordered a MMXL2 Esc and (4) 3s lipos that I'll run in 6s2p 5000!

    How did the 5000mah cells fit?
