On my Hacker's I just put velcro on the stiffner and on side of fuse with corresponding velcro on two sides of bats with the battery standing on edge. Then I can move battery around depending on conditions or how I want it to fly. If I want to fly in windy conditions I move it forward a bit. I have marks for the different positions and can also use different batteries this way. Lighter batteries give a more floaty flight and heavier batteries penetrate wind better.
Thanks! good idea, didn't think about putting velcro on stiffener too! yeah 2200mah might be a little heavy, but the next smallest I have is a 1300?? probably too small. the sniper x II is a big plane! 4ft ws and about 4ft long...
