Default RC8e battery dimensions

I have read some ProTek hard case packs will not fit i would prefer hard case and they have one for $139. I cant find max size dimensions for the rc8e. It might be easier to just tell me what you use. Keep in mind hard case ,4cell,5000mAh or more for under $150

The protek was been updated to a smaller size and the larger ones are now listed as scratch and dent.

Yes, those older protek 4s packs are too long (165mm). Guys had to cut out the rear of the battery tray and move the ESC back to fit. The new one (138mm) will fit fine. You should be able to get about 140mm long pack in the RC8e.

Thanks, I heard about some batteries not fitting but did not know if it was height or length, this helps me a lot.

Default HYPERION G3 BATTERIES - GREAT PRICE!

the RC8E Requires a battery that is less than 140mm in length. The Hyperion G3 25C 4S 5000mAh this battery has been a popular choice for this requirement.

hyperion CX 25C 4S 5000

L: 136.5 x W: 42.4 x H: 40.98 498 grams

5.374" 1.669" 1.61"3 17.57 oz.

I have these batteries available for $110 shipped anywhere in the US. If you buy more than one, the price goes down to $105 each.

I only order when I have requests totalling ten (10) packs. As soon as I have reached ten packs, payment via paypal will be required before I order.

PM or e-mail me to get on the list today.
