Guys, are the packs strapped in to the frame? It looks to me like the tray is fastened in place with screws, and the packs are strapped to it when installed. Not a removeable tray scenario...correct? Is the pack swapping easy to do?

The tray can be easily removed with packs on it. Look at pictures in link below, it should be clear from that. As for whenever it's easy to replace packs I can't tell yet, but I will maiden my E8 in few days and i can let you know.
You can also get tray for each of your packs and keep them strapped. Replacing packs will be super-easy than.

Thanks, Dave. I saw those pics in my initial research of this heli, but I couldn't tell how the tray is fastened in. It has countersunk holes, so I presumed it was to be attached with flat head socket cap screws.

It pops on and off, check the build threads here on the E8 and you will see they have plastic snap on links that clip to the metal frame spacers making it super easy to take packs in and out
