You can cut off and resolder the ESC wires as seen in the pics here. This will allow you to perfectly fit the batteries pictured, even when the motors has a gearbox, as shown. Doing this is not necessary to fit these batteries, however; it just frees up a bit more room and makes the pushing away of the wires during battery installation free from resistance. (The 5s lipo requires trimming the wing saddle slightly.)
