Default Lipo fitting help with F103R

I am curious what hard case lipo fits the best in a F103R, just looking for peoples input, thanks. I tried a maxamps pack and it wasn't a real nice fit, I use a SMC pack that fit a lot better but was slightly loose. So any input is good thanks

Trinity 5000 40c, Thunderpower 5000 40c both fit, but I tape my batteries.

Just about any battery that fits between the upper and lower deck will work. If the battery is somewhat loose fitting or is very short, you can always add scrap plastic sheet, carbon fiber, or a coffee mixing stick (worth .3 tenths of a sec) to take up the slack and position the battery as low as possible. Then you use tape to secure everything.
