FBL is pleased to introduce a unique battery tray for the Synergy E Series. The design was a collaboration of new concepts that would create a rail free approach and that would be strong enough for Extreme 3D.

All of the components of the battery tray are made from Delrin and are either machined or molded. The unique properties of this material allow the tray to slide on the carbon base plate freely without marring the surface and being lite weight.

The tray has five locations to place your Velcro straps based upon the battery location for CG. The underside of the tray incorporates a machined boss that holds a molded Delrin clip.

The clip receptacle incorporates a set of parallel rails that interlock into the carbon base plate.

All components are replaceable in case of a mishap and a spare clip will be included in kit.

The benefits of the tray are:

• Easy battery installation and removal into the main frame pocket
• Self aligning into the carbon plate
• Three attachment points within the carbon plate
• Secure locking mechanism for extreme 3D
• Minimal installation time.

The kit will include the complete tray, latch parts, 2- OEM Synergy straps and 2- 13.5 inches of heat shrink tubing for making full stick packs.

Extra trays will sold for flyers with multiple packs.

These tray will be available in 3 weeks.

If you have an interest, please visit the FBL site and add your name to the waiting list.

Pricing for the kits and parts will be announced shortly

Thank you

Ralph

FBL E6/7 Battery Tray

Guys I got a couple of prototypes for testing and absolutely Love them. It is so easy to install and You don't have to worry about the Battery coming out. The Snap Mechanism is quite simple and easy to use yet very Durable. Well Worth it!! Less hassle strapping the packs in.. Quick and Easy. Keep an eye out for this mod, It's going to be a MUST HAVE...

200FT tail slide into a snap reverse nose down with the canopy off. I tride to sling the pack out and it held solid..

After checking Ralph's tray at Ircha, this system is the fastest way to change and install packs in the E6 and E7. Very nice. Getting a few for my packs.

Really awesome solution!

I got one of the prototypes at IRCHA and have some notes.

First, very light and rigid design, no additional straps are necessary beyond what holds the battery to the tray, the locking mechanism really holds and the assembly doesn't move at all.

The clip will push down on the front of the canopy so if that bothers you do what I did and dremel a triangle shape out of the canopy's lower air vent which completely relieves an pressure.

It's really a surprisingly easy install and super easy to use, just click and pull.

Also, you don't *have* to make stick packs, I didn't.

The entire install including the canopy mod took me about 15 minutes.

I'll post a picture and template for the canopy cut out in a bit.

At least an estimated price would be nice.

I am waiting to calculate machine time for the tray. You do not know until you actually start running them.

Prototype and production are completely different.

I can tell you that the entire kit will be under $50.00 if that helps

At least give Ralph credit for giving us a option like this.
He worked really hard and many iterations to come to a final product. It's a top quality product.
