Hey guys, just thought I’d post this up here incase anyone was interested
The Vector doesn’t have a great lot of room for a battery plus bugger all room for anything else like an aftermarket mosfet if you wanted to instal one.
So I decided to try strapping the battery to the bottom of the handle area, in the same way you do with a quad when flying FPV. It does make the vector a little bulkier and I would of course rather have the battery concealed, but it just makes it so much easier to fit a good sized battery plus free’s up some useful space inside the handle area.
I had a few 1500 mah 4S battery’s laying around that each had a dud cell so worked out perfect. Also, being a little offset to the handle it is balanced nicely and not really in the way. Had a bit of trouble finding a female panel mount XT-60 connector but found a company in the US that sold them and didn’t take too long to arrive. My current set up has a homemade Mosfet in the handle but currently looking for a good programmable one.
I haven’t got the full black out kit yet so would probably look better with everything being black. The battery strap was from one I had laying around that coincidentally was the same orange.
Just used hot glue to secure the battery door to the blaster and doesn’t budge.
Here’s some pics:
