Question
GWS EPO Kits

Does the battery bay need to be modded the same as the EPS kits? I love GWS, but not crazy about modding the battery bay every time to fit modern batteries..

The new EPO planes I've seen are identical molds of the old EPS ones...

The E-Starter is the same for EPO and EPS. It does seem like they could come up with something a little better, but then again people use a wide variety of batteries. No one design will satisfy all or even most.

Planes with better battery bays have their issues, too. The ever-popular Super Cub's battery bay is an incredibly tight fit for various 1300mah batteries. I thought I was going to damage the lipo just trying to get it in there. Forget about trying to use something larger in that bay.

Some of the "newer" (2007+) GWS models seem to be fine for the current lipos. The P-40 (GWS-40) will takea 3s/2200 without major surgery, if any.
