    The bat bay is deigned for up to two 4s 3300 but some 4s 4000 , some 5000's fit, you need to jocky your gear to hit the cg
    I have a single 3s 5000 in mine and it looks like I mite be able to go two if I had too.

    My target price on the cam box and rail skids is 35.00, cnc laser cut is nice but its all time consuming.
    One thing is its way nicer then hot glueing your cams to the wing , or making a conglomeration case.
    I made this and the wing nose thickness to fit the go pro with this cam box.I took some ideas from these threads just a step further ,you could acutally wrap some more clear poly carbonate over the skid rails to make it a smooth nose, but if it gets scratched or dirty it will drive you nuts.

    With the new foam being less porous the paint schemes are limitless. Thinking a dragon would be appropriate.
