Default anyone running the Orion 4800 LiPo in an mf2?

I'm curious about fitment in the battery compartment. Sure, i could measure using online specs, but i'm curious if anyone has any real world experience with this fitment.

With my 4200's, i had to do some very creative Trinity gold bar mods to get my SXS packs to fit.

I don't know if they changed the specs too much from a MF1 but I have no issues fitting the 4800 in two of my kids'. Same with the T4 and Evader.

thanks guys! i look forward to a little more runtime vs. my IB4200's. I am running the MM 7700 so it's a bit taxing on the batteries.

Two things:
1. Flip the battery strap over so the channel with the foam strip is up. The 4800 is slightly taller.

2. if you have a long enough reciever connector wire, run it around the front of the battery box (behind the steering servo) instead of under the battery. The battery crushes the wire over time.
