Thats 31,000 words alright! What thickness are those battery bars? Looks like you snip them yourself from sheet stock?

Yes, my friend Dalibor, who made this pack snip them himself from sheet stock and their thickness is 0.8mm x 1cm wide. They should sustain 400A, but since this pack is for my Big Ceres E, (there also will be two addictional cells on extension added to this pack to make it 10SA123) max current wont exceed 100A for sure.

It is a teflon nomax tape and it was used for safety reasons only to prevent any possible short-circuiting.

Sure, there will be shrink, 3M one if I remember right. But since it's gonna be 10SA123 pack with "integrated" RX batteries (Big Ceres E fuselage is extremely tight) shrinking is the last step.

Any particular type of solder used? Any problems with getting it to stick on the cans?
