I have done the same tray move as Gerald and there is plenty of room for batteries. I am currently running 10 cells 500ar with a permax 4014 cobalt geared 3.8:1 turning a 11x8 prop. Climbs are near vertical and glide is ok. Good for big thermal days to hang. I have flown this many different ways and this is the most fun. As a thrmal it is kinda small to see when you are over 1000'. Averange flights are still in the teens with little help from lifting thermals. Burns last about 30 sec to spec. Five to six burns per pack. Motor runs total about about 2 minutes. Not climbing from 0 everytime.
