They fit if you turn them on their side instead of fitting them flat - it then becomes a matter of securing them. The issue is really that the 34mm wide pack fits so perfectly flat that it enhances the security; anything different is less desireable.

EXACTLY ! Why would I buy a pack that does not have that nice fit for MORE money ? If I have to find another pack I will shop by cost and performance since FIT is out the window.

There ya go.

I just bought a 1800 3S 15C pack from Dymond that cost $35.00. Not as much duration, but so far the pack isn't half bad. I can buy two for the price of one TP and they fit perfectly in the T-Rex, just like the TP2100's.

Why does TP still list the TP2100 on their web site if it is no longer in production?

Im sorry that battery looks funny sitting out there like that. What is it secured to? Did you have to redrill the mounting point on the canopy? I see they were modified. Was that to accomodate that battery? I will continue to purchase packs that acutally fit in the space provided. I appreaciate the visual aid. I didnt know it was that bad.

I don't fly a trex, but I have a Logo 10 Extreme that I fly 6S2P Pro-lites in and you guys will be shocked at how much better the Pro-lite packs are over the older gen 2s. The voltage holds through the entire flight with almost no noticable headspeed drop and I actually have to fly off the radio timer because you don't have that voltage drop to tell you the pack is getting low. I am getting two more of the Pro-lite packs in a week or so and won't even consider another battery. The packs also seem to run cooler, probably because of the higher C ratings. My packs on a 60 deg. day are only pushing 78-85 deg. with really hard flying.

You can actually tell in a big way that these are better battery packs, not just slightly better.

Man, look at all these posts complaining about fit! I just can't believe this is such a big concern! What is more important? A lighter far better performing battery (for only $5 more) or that it fits between the sideframes perfectly?? There are so many ways you can mount this smaller pack! Just stand it in it's side and brace it with some foam or stand it on one of it's ends if you have CCPM conversion etc...

TPpacks are you going to answer my question? I brought up some valid points. Would you please address them.

On my heliworkz frame I had to brace my battery as it's narrower than the stock rex, so my batt's sit in sideways. I just used the foam inserts from the blade holders, snug as can be.

From the picture, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to guess that the pack is velcro'd to the existing battery tray on the Trex.

As for the new holes in the canopy for mounting...looks like there is a Big Al 120 degree CCPM conversion under the hood. That's probably the reason for the new holes.

I've been using Kokam 2000 mah high discharge rate packs...they're wide like the new TP shown. And they fit just fine on the standard tray, and the canopy fits fine, too.

As for the Modified canopy that was to fit the CCPM conversion he has on there.

My buddy was talking to the tp rep at toledo today, and he said that was just a vicious rumor going around that they discontinued the 2100mah pack.

They must sell a ton of those 2100's. Why would they stop making them when they are selling like hotcakes? Glad to hear there not going to discountinue the 2100. There packs are so pricey that if they stop making my favorite battery I will definately check out the competition before spending even more. People its a batttery, an eighty five dollar battery. Im embarresed to tell people what my lipos cost. The more manufacturers competing to sell the same product can only result in lower prices to the consumer.

You guys should really reread some posts in the thread. Gary clearly said that HE (http://www.tppacks.com) stopped carrying the 3S 2100mAh batteries, but since he is only ONE of the many Thunder Power dealers you can still buy the 2100mAh batt elsewhere!

I think some people get confused over the name Gary is using. http://www.TPpacks.com. It looks like the URL to the actual manufacturer if you didnt know any better. Maybe thats why when he said he was going to discountinue the 2100 they got confused and the rumor mill started churning.

So if the 2100 are selling like hot cakes ( which I believe and support)
what is tppacks thinking? Seems stupid.
