Hi,
read this thread - omg. i have one 5000mAh 4S and I had it mounted on top of my hexa instead of the battery-plate. And my cables for servo are going through the hole. And I mounted my LED under the battery-plate at the back end...
Now I see my big mistakes

When the wind will get less, I will dothe next test.flight and post the video.

It might be better that way.....

Askman is testing a newer thicker battery tray and compression plates.

Gary will have the kits for upgrades in his site as a very reasonable price (basically just cost if parts)

I am swapping mine over soon.

what made you choose servos rather than brushless motors?

Take a look at the post date. Back in 2012 brushless gimbals were not available yet.
