I picked up a Aerodyne Bell 206 700 size fuselage. I plan to use my Trex700 in it. My question is what do you normally do with your ESC and battery's? I have the ESC mounted in the normal spot top rear but how do you run and plug your battery's in? My last scale bird was a nitro many years back.
Thanks, Tony

Gravity's a bitch ant it?

mount it where it will reach the battery, batts are usually placed up front to help keep the cg in the correct location. sometines you have to be creative about this. make sure the batts are where you can conveniently get to them to remove them for charging. charging them n the heli is not good practice

drive a rotary, fly a rotorcraft

I usually end up with 2 6S packs, one on either side of the mechs, on the floor. IMHO, I would keep the esc at the front of the mechs. That way if it burns, you have a chance of yanking it out of there before the fuse melts with it.

All helis and planes have an expiration date stamped on them...you only find it after you crash!!
