I have a few of these Zippy packs that are a bit longer and thicker than the 2S 1300 E-flite counterparts. They barely fit. Space is really tight under the canopy.

I can never get more than 7 mins out of the Zippy or E-flite 1300s but I fly aeros rather than flying scale.

I have the exact same packs, I took out a wee bit of foam to fit them. The connectors are a tad large for the space there.

I like the XT-60 connectors too. I'm able to get the connector to fit under the canopy by strapping the batt wires down alongside the battery.

Here's a pic of how I get it to fit
