I received a replacement for a evo lite 2500 3s pack from tower hobbies. All my other packs were they standard 3s pack size like 95% out there. I get this one and it is really flat, but wider and a little longer. Cannot fit in any of my 450 helis. Would make a nice 6s2p pack for my protos, but it is unusable in 450 size helis. Even in minitian with large canopy shape. I called services up to see if I got some sort of special application battery and they tell me that is the new replacement. That just does not make any sense that they would redesign a battery that cannot be used in 450 size helis when that is a huge portion of that they are use for.

Anyone seen this? Are they just incorrect at customer service? I don't get it.

3s 2100 looks the same.

Unfortunately you are correct I have the FP 3S2500 I measured them and they are about 22mm w x 112mm long x 30mm h. When I first bought a Furion 450 I bought 3 Zippy pack 3S2500 from Hobby City and had the same issue even after making cutouts in the canopy so I sold them on Ebay. If you have not used them I would see about returning them or cut up your canopy. I am glad you told me so I will not buy FP again or least be careful and look at the batteries dimensions.

Went to http://www.thunderpowerrc.com website and their 3S2600, 20C lite series batteries are about the smae size as the old FP 3S2500 batteries and at $62.99.......

Glad you replied and that I was not the only one that experienced this. They are a great size for me to double up and use in my 500 size heli, but then I can't share them with my 450 size

Good for planks, but not heli I guess. I don't want to cut my canopies. I may just buy another solely to run in my Protos as one pack...
