Battery slide for GP Spacewalker

I decided to update this old 1/4 scale ARF & am wondering how to secure the battery in the slide. Construction prevents the battery moving except back up the slide to the cockpit. Will post pics.

I am thinking about a block that bolts to the slide. There is considerable friction in the fit; but I figure vibration will allow movement.

First attempt at a restraint was a washout. The screwdriver was angled too much & cross-threading was a problem.
Here is take-2.

I am also propping down to a 15x10 as I don't need the 1950 watts from the 16x10.
