The only ones that fit on the tray are the 2200 (both 3S/4S), which I use anyway. For $40, this Pod / tray would have been killer (function and value) if it was either a tad wider or taller to fit a larger battery to allow duration flying.

- There is space inside the fuselarge. Maybe previous owners can get a discount on Version 2.

Hi idletime,

The tray's width is limited by the fuselage opening, which gets narrower towards the bottom of the plane. To fit a wider battery, the tray would have to sit higher in the fuselage. To fit a taller battery, it'd have to be narrower. The current size is a compromise.
