I have a challenge.

I finished building a Trex 500. I received a 6S battery for it from a friend. I tried putting the battery on but noticed that the canopy is hard to mount because of the size of this battery. I heard that there is a modified frame for the T500 that makes it possible to use larger batteries......correct? If so, can someone point me to a source?

Thanks.

You have to mod the frame yourself drop the battery tray and drill new holes or make some L brackets and use the same holes if you want also.

The new 500 ESP frames address that issue. I am running Hyperion 3300 mah in mine no problem with fit. Align part number is 500B008-2. Hope this helps. Chuck

I don't do any what I call 3d and have the timer set for 5:30 but usually go to about 6 minutes. I have got only about 5 flights on it so far and haven't been keeping track of the mah put back in. I still have only charged the battery at 2C at the most. Next time I will try to reneged to check mah. I use a Hyperion 610 networking charger and the percentage left is usually about 35. Chuck

Here's some good instructions for the tray mod.

I did mine in under 20 minutes.

I literally never use the word literally right.
