Good evening All,

I thought I would share a bit more info on my review of this little beauty! Especially how I managed to hide most of the gear inside the profile fuz.

Here are some photos that didn't make the final article which hopefully show the details.:


The final radio layout under the canopy


After boring the cable routes though the fuz I cut the sides out to make room for the LiPo. The cut out is slightly smaller than the LiPo to "grip" it when inserted. I have found this works fine without needing any velcro. That bit of the fuz side was thinned down to cover the LiPo once inserted.


Here the ESC is being drawn into the nose through the battery access. I have found no problems with the ESC being buried like this, no signs of overheating.


The Lipo just before being connected and pushed into it's EPP crevis. The thinned down EPP side piece hides it from view.

I hope that gives you a bit more info. When I find out how to upload a pdf I'll add a drawing of the fuz to show a bit more detail.

Useful extra info - I did wonder about some of that when I read the article

Hello Mike. I have a few of the Hyperion batteries you show in the photo above. I wanted to buy some more but can't find them listed anywhere. Where did you buy yours?

Great review - I'm tempted.

Thanks. Ian
