hump nimh 6volt


Also hardly any lipos fit at all.

robitronics 1500mah lipo fits, which is the same as an lrp 1500mah rx lipo as well aparently.

Can you guys post a couple of pics of how your batteries are going in? We have a 1600 mAH Reedy Nimh and we can't even get it to fit.

If it were just the battery alone it might, but with the connection and the servo wire running through there it won't fit

There is a little slot on the side of the box (facing you as you put the battery in) that you can wedge the battery connector into. I run an extension from the rx box to the battery box and leave that under the hump pack. Put the battery on top of it with the connector in the little space close to you....connect the battery and wedge it in there. It's a tight fit with a hump pack....but there is room if you finagle it around.

I prefer to run the Robotronic LIPO which is also a snug fit on the long side...but plenty of room on top of it. Just work with it though and the hump pack WILL fit in there.

It's definitely a pain in the rear, but once you get the hang of it....you can do it with your eyes closed. It's a tiny tiny battery box for sure! If you want to check out one of the Robitronic LIPOs for fitment...come see me at PNB. I'll have one in my D8 and my D8T ;-)
