Default RDX Phi LiPo Hard Case

Hey, all.

Has anyone been able to find a suitable LiPo with hard case to fit into the Phi? With the tolerances so tight, clearnace to the topdeck is an issue and I'm either looking for a lowerprofile pack or a workaround. Any recommendations would be helpful.

Tx.
Phil

I put an Orion 3200 in my PHi. The only place it touches is the aluminum rear support It doesnt touch the graphite upper deck.

Thanks for the detail. Does it touch sufficiently to stress the bulkead? Good to know.

It won't stress it. I have to look closer to see it I could file the slots out to bring it down without the battery dropping below the chassis plate.

I've got the 3200 orion/peak hard pack in my PHI with no problem.Yes it's tight and I've also got alot of weight added to the battery.I've grooved out the negative side of the battery plate holder and the top deck.As I plan to leave the batteries in all the time.Got the Corally plugs and I use them to plug the ESC directly into the battery. When Charging I pull the ESC plugs and use the Charger plugs.I never have to remove the battery from the car.
