Hi everybody,

First of all : the A123 dimensions (2300mA/H) : 27mm diam., 66mm long

Then : here are some pictures of my new frame, home made !

I designed it in order to put my 8S A123 pack.

The upper part of the frame is the Gaui CF frame, the lower part is made of bended 5086 aluminum alloy, 1.6mm thick.
It is a bit wider than the Gaui CF frame, so my A123 pack fit perfectly in it !
Unfortunately, my charger can't charge 8S (Hyperion 610i Duo), so I had to put wires to charge it as 2 x 4S pack.

This material will be far more crash proof compare to the CF ! In deed, it is very easy to bend, so it won't break during the crash.
The weight of the overall is similar to the CF frame.
I still need to paint it and to put all the wires correctly, but I couldn't wait for that, I wanted to try it first !

The balance of my heli is better, and my A123 pack will not move anymore during a flight !

I am waiting for your comments !
