Mini-Graphite part 3

My long waited Mini Graphite finally arrived! (16 weeks). I have Torcman 350/28 14 wind 14 pol motor to use with this plane. Now I'm making a choice which batteries to use and how to fit them inside. I noticed that fuselage is pretty narrow and because of my motor winding number I have to use 14 – 18 cells. I am going to use CP 1700 cells. What do you think if I put battery pack, which is in triangular formation, like in this picture?

Will it cause problems to have one battery lead quite long? This triangular formation causes battery leads coming from other ends of pack.

For those wondering how motor with 42 mm diamerter will fit to that nose, Torcman has a extension (like a gearbox) of 25 mm. That makes fitting it possible without major modifications to nose. Altough I am making an new nose which has bit larger diameter in front to fit any LRK motor.

How has your MG:s been flying? and would you now do something differently with this bird setup?
