Hey guys !

I have been using Joker 2 for AP for a year now. I had 2*6s5000mh TP batteries for it.
They are gone to battery heaven and now i purchuased 2*6s5000mh Hyperion CX batts.
They are nice battery but they are about .5 of cm taller then TPs and now they do not fit nice at all inside battery bay in Joker2.

How do you get .5 of cm more in height? Please help!

This may work for the joker 2 it does on the maxi. Take the bottom plate that the skids mount to and flip it over. This will give you extra clearance. Put the screw heads on the inside and nuts on the outside. You dont want to use the same screws as they are flat head and might nick the battery, get some pan heads and you should be set. I put a little tape over them just to be sure. Hope that helps

Its been awhile since I put one of those together, but I bet you could use a ton of small washers as standoffs too! I wouldn't go much more then 1/8" taller but it might be just enough.

Which is worse, ignorance or apathy? I don't know and I don't care!

Flip the plates like suggested. You can only go wider with washers/shims.

Thanx guys!

I have fliped the plates and drilled new holes for the landing gear screws.

all is good now and batteries fit with a lot of room to spare!
Perfect!
