Yes, I remember now - that's why I still have those RKH skids and undercarriage battery mounts laying around.
Cutting out the bottom of the canopy only partially solved the problem anyway. It was still a pain to fish out even the 550's, and as I recall the 1300's wouldn't fit inside the canopy forward of the frame.
I don't bother cutting away the canopy for the 550's any more. It's easy enough to just pull the canopy off to change batts and leave it off during the cooldowns between flights.
So where will you "fly" your airboat? Are you anywhere near Alligator Alley?
