Turnigy 130 maH Size Compared To E-Flite 120 maH?

Are the dimensions of the Turnigy NanoTech 130 maH cells the same or close to the stock E-Flite 120 maH units? The reason I ask is that I am planning to buy some for my mCX2 and would like to know if I can push the Turnigy all the way in the battery mount just like the stock cells without interfering with the servo gears.

Anyone know?

Thanks in advance.

Found it!

OK never mind guys. I found the measurements of these two different cells.

E-Flite 120 maH 14C

Length: 33.7 mm
Width: 11.2 mm
Height: 5.59 mm

Turnigy Nano Tech 130 maH 25C

Length: 39 mm
Width: 12 mm
Height: 7 mm

Seems like the Turnigy cell will be a bit of a tight fit but from what I read, it will slide into the mCX2's battery holder. It happens to be longer so I'm not still sure if I'll be able to slide it all the way into the battery holder without hitting the servo gears.

Honestly, E-Flite made a mistake with that design in that they could have either placed the servos just a little higher or made the molded plastic battery holder sit a little lower to avoid this issue.

I ran mine with a Thunder Power Prolite V2,160,but if you pushed it in too far,it would hit the servo gear.I just left like a 1/16" to the gear.Balance was fine,and I got probably a 10-12 minute flight out of it.$12 at my hobby store.This one.http://www.hobby-lobby.com/g4_pro_li...34182_prd1.htm
