Has anyone tried or are you using these battery holders for the Q500? One fits underneath the body and the other fits in the battery compartment. Seems like a viable alternative to our battery issues...

Well, no responses, so bought the under slung type. Not mounted yet or purchased the battery but I did find one in the 8,000 category that I will purchase...

Wondering if you have used this setup and what you think of it. Been thinking about getting one myself so i could use the other batteries I already have.

Oh, I forgot to say that I replaced all the metal hardware with nylon 8-32 from Lowe’s.
Thanks for the reply.
That was a good idea on switching to the nylon as I say it saved some weight.
I am thinking very hard about getting either the external or the internal adapter, but I would like to talk with someone who has tried the internal one before I make up my mind.
Here is a link to the internal adapter I am looking at on Ebay.

That's what I figured, I liked the idea of a cleaner look but not the smaller capacity.
I know that bigger capacity don't always mean more flight time because of the weight difference so I guess it would depend on how much smaller the capacity would have to be for the internal. If I could use a 3000 to 3500 mah the difference in weight might mean the flight time is not much shorter than 5000 to 5500mah battery would be.
I may just have to get one and see. I have a couple of 3000 mah batteries now that I could try and see how much time I get. ( if those would fit )
But it's going to be a week or 2 before I can order and try because I will be gone for a couple of weeks.

Yes, there’s always a compromise when modifying from OE. My flight times are enjoyable, but they come at a price...

I prefer internal version, more compact and easy to callibrate compass with this rotations.. Also it easy to place it back at steel case or backpack .. For the price of one original battery you can get 3 generic batteries...

I have made Just small conversion, i added xt 60 to battery bay and i can still use normal yuneec batteries and other aftermarket batteries. I dont have yet other bat, but i ordered redox 8000 which Will fit i to battery bay and as i think it should work, i Will give you info results when i Will have my ordered bat. I think is better that this 3d printed converters because i can fit bigger batts. That redox that i ordered weight is the same as original yuneec batt. received_1675554902578861.jpeg
