I hope to start my build on the EX next weekend. I will take pictures along the way and post them. If I don't do the frame mod, what is the largest battery that will fit comfortably?

You can make a 6s1p 3300mah battery fit , but it will be hung way out there.. Here is 2 x 3s1p 3300mah 25C Enerland/Poly-Quest batteries in series, 6s1p 3300mah... They stick way out there but they will fit.
This EP9 has the frame mod done to it, but this is where the batteries would rest with-out the mod...

They do stick out quite a bit. Must change the center of gravity a lot.
Nice photography!
Gives me a good idea of what you meant about attaching the trex landing skids also.

Thanks for the photos Jimbo. Spent the day do chores around the home, so maybe tomorrow I will start assembly.

The picture with the batteries sticking out on the heli is of my EP9 with Caliber .30 landing gear. I used to think they were the best L/G until I tried the Trex 500 L/G...
