This page below covers most of my ESC/Battery stuff, though there is also more that I have done to that and not added to the BLOG yet.
I have a LOT more room than stock internal, but even that is still somewhat limited with 8S 5000mAH.
I also have a different cockpit base I made up, to allow even more spare height. (not in BLOG yet).

Thanks Peter... I did re-read it and the photos make it clear where you have cut. I have spent 2 hours this morning helping a friend with one of those transmitters that 'came with the plane' and the guy that wrote the programming manual, must have been laughing so hard...

Sabre battery tray solution

Following your instructions Peter I removed the foam, folded up a Z shape from 2mm alloy and used my existing floorplate dropped 15mm but with the weight bearing on the top and walls of the cutout... ESC on the bottom of the alloy tray... sweet! Thanks again
