I tried a few places in town, but nobody seemed to stock them. Finally found them on Ebay - 5 for £1.88 + 30p p&p.
70mm x 3mm NBR 70 Shore O-Ring x 5

from 'quality industrial products'.

They're slightly thinner than the Mikado ones, but not by much and they seem to hold the battery in place very nicely.

Mikado charge over £8 for 6. Ouch.

I might have just bought the last ones but I'm sure they'll have some more in soon.

A bit like a kite, but 500 times more expensive

I just got a dozen of them from the local bearing place. I got 3" orings they were only $1AU.
Should be fine for tall 6S packs.

Hi All,

If you're looking for something that's easier to use than the O-Rings (IMHO) and won't break, you could try the following. They're awesome and you only need to use one.

NOTE: You still need to put sticky velcro on the frame and batteries. The strap just ensures that the battery stays in contact with the sticky velcro.

Keep 'em flying.

USE VELCRO!

It has to be the original stuff. Buy one roll that has the mail and female end back to back. Then buy a package of the sticky stuff and put that one your packs.

It wont go anywhere and it wont wear out.

Best O-Ring source I've found

http://www.mcmaster.com

They have every o-ring know to man (not only size, but all different material types for different applications). You can order types that are for example, more resistant to cracking, but less resistant to say, hydrochloric acid (who cares in our application, as long as they don't crack so often ). Packs of 25 for 7-9 dollars (vs. two rings for 5 dollars). I couldn't find anything local.

I've been trying the velco thing lately, because I was tired of the rings cracking so quickly and the cost to replace. But if the rings I have coming will last longer and are cheaper, then I think I'd prefer the rings. To each their own .

Take care, Dave.
