Keeping things in place when your aircraft is flying is critical. It’s especially important when one of those items is not only a major source of weight in the aircraft, but also the only source of power. For many electric park fliers that power & weight combination is usually the battery. But how do you keep your battery securely in place during flight & make it easy to install and remove?

Our solution is Velcro®! This powerful and cost effective method will keep your battery in place, allow you to remove it quickly and easily, and give you the ability to shift the battery weight forward or backward to ensure a proper center of gravity (CG) – without adding additional weight.

    Also depending on the plane and setup, I like to use a hool and loop strap either in addition or instead of the fixed velcro.

    What about after you get it installed and pull out the battery and the velcro from the plane comes up too? I have used a little CA to get it back down as it will never stick well again once it comes off.

    Ah do as I do….Put a stick of gum in it and hope it sticks……..Just don’t fly to close to the sun. 😛
