Here are some images for those wanting recess the battery tray specifically for the Protek 5S 4000 pack. Out of 4 packs all of them have fit between the frames but someone here posted that theirs did not fit and gave a measurement of 40mm. These packs are 40mm at the center of the pack so slightly less on the edges and do fit so Im not sure what the deal was on the other persons situation.

I lowered mine to be flush with the slot in the frame. Canopy fits great and I get perfect balance with the JR 8900 full size tail servo. My esc is mounted under the battery tray. With a smaller size tail servo you would probably mount your ESC on the side, directly in line with the shaft.

Thanks both of you..

7:30 of sport/3D with a little to spare. Have not done just sport but add at least another minute.

I can confirm that there are variances in Protek pack dimensions.
One of the packs I got is closer to 41mm and I wouldn't risk spreading (or cutting) the frame or compressing the pack to force the fit.

I contacted amainhobbies and they said if you receive a new pack that measures over 39 to contact them for an exchange. They measured some packs that they are currently using and about 30 new on hand packs, all measured to spec.
