I was just looking into some of the batteris on hobbyking and I was wondering what the most amout of battery people are putting in there Z2?

I saw that some were saying 3300 4S nano-techs are common. I would like to stay with 4S.

Anyone tried placing 4S 4000 nano's?

I get 2x 5000 mah 4s Zippy batteries in my Zii with tough bay

surely not the largest amount possible, but i'm happy with 2 x 4S 4000 zippy 20c, fits snuggly into standard batt bay.

Interesting. I'm running 4s 3000 and I think 4000 should be plenty. I don't have the battery bay or anything.

I was using twin 4s 4000mah Glacier lipos. They fit great. Now my newest Zeph will have the tuffbay. Even more room. I am trying the RMRC 6600mah pack when I get my new z running. That pack fits with plenty of room on the sides.

I'm confused how the tough bay increases room? Are you supposed to cut out foam in order to fit it? Cause it would seem when you add something like that it can create less room...

I use 2x Zippy Flightmax 4000 4S, have a 3rd connector available, so for long range it gets another one piggyback on top. Thatīs 12000mAh 4S, 1:45h flight time ;)

Yes. The foam is removed and the tuffbay slots into the surrounding foam, creating an even stronger plane.

On my Zii the tough bay is perfect for my 2x 5000mah batteries. The weight of the batts allow me to balance the wing perfectly. If I use my old 3300mah batteries I have to add quite a bit of dead weight, which I really hate doing.
