The dimensions are around 5.9 x 1.7 x 1.7 or 149 x 44 x 44 in MM. Carve up a piece of styrofoam to that size and give it a try. Its kind of big and dont think it would work out.

The 2500, 3000 will fit with out mods, the 3300 you haft to move the battery slot down, MH makes a bottom alum frame support that moves the canopy forward and you haft to move the canopy mounts forward also and you can get a 3300 in, I just cut the frames down a bit and my 3300 fits fine. Bobby

Battery Size...
While you can fit up to a 3300mah lipo...you really need to pay attention to the CG of the machine...

I use a 3000mah lipo on my vbarred 500 and it CG's out perfectly...But I also have the ESC under the battery tray...

If you mount the esc back of the main shaft then a 3300 will prob CG out right...so basically...you need to plan the location of the electronics in order to achieve a perfect CG

BTW...here's an older pic of mine before I moved the ESC to the front tray...I also switched to a jazz 80
