Default Battery question

Can this take a 6s 4000mah? I have been using 3000mah but will probably get exo in the future so would prefer not to buy batteries again.

With the stock canopy I can fit 6S 3300mah lipos. However with the Atom 5.5 canopy it can take up to 6S 5000mah lipos (tight fit).

So your saying this isn't fitting under the stock canopy?

I'm nearly certain those will fit. Can check those dimensions against what I'm flying when I get home, but I think those are same length and just 6 mm wider, which would be no problem.

Great, I've been running those batteries in my sons truck and they perform nicely. They should be the size for the Exo if I get that and if I can fit them in the atom then its perfect.

The largest battery I have is actually 139 x 44 x 49, and there is still a bit of room. You should be just fine with that.
