Got all of my static out of the L600 and took the bird up yesterday. Couple passes proved good so I began pouring the coals to her. After a large tail slide I leveled it out and did some rolls and all of the sudden the heli made a very violent correction I did not do. The canopy was half off. I landed and found the gromet was a little loose and then notics the front battery was coming out of the heli in the front causing the canopy to stress and come off as well as the cg shift and the vbar corrected the drift.

I had all of the normal rubber bands across the frame and then an addistional red felt velcro tie around the front battery. I had thought this was a decent and tight grab of the batteries. What are you other guys using to keep your front battery in when using two 5-6 S? I am not flying that hard from what I saw at Ircha last year of some of those guys that it should be flying off the heli like this.

I made a battery stop on the end of the battery tray/frame. I too have slung a battery out with dire consequences when doing a fast rotation.
I'll post a pic shortly.

I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?

Here is a picture. The stop is a plastic step bolted to the battery tray. The battery slips over the top of the step and then is velcroed down. Never had a slipped battery after this homemade mod.

I velcro my packs onto an aluminum battery tray, and then have two hook-and-loop Velcro straps to secure each battery. I know I don't need two Velcro straps for each pack, but i like the redundancy.

I previously used just one strap per pack but previously I had one strap break (the plastic loop broke) and the pack was just hanging by the plug. I was lucky that the plugs were pretty tight and the pack didn't eject.

@RadovanH: that carbon tray is NICE. Where did you get it? Or did you make it?

Never had a problem with velcro under the packs and one buckle type strap on each pack.

I use a pair of 2mm carbon plates, one on the top, and one on the bottom to secure and protect my batteries. The upper carbon plate prevents any chance of a pack puncture. The lower plate is held to the heli with hook and loop tape. The 5 Velcro straps are probably overkill but My packs are secure and protected!

Same as NTM, velcro on the bottom with a single Mikado velcro strap on each pack. Everything is solid and not going to move in flight.

I've never been a fan of the o-ring battery straps personally. I find they dry out and crack over time eventually breaking. All new kits since at least a year ago come with velcro straps instead of the o-rings.
