Battery 'sticky' pad?
« on: August 11, 2017, 11:39:46 »
I bought a 'Realacc Carbon Fiber Battery Protection Board with Tie Down Strap for X Frame kit' https://goo.gl/A453KK.
It came with a self adhesive sort of sticky gel pad to stop the battery slipping. It is thin at about 1mm but is really does hold the battery well against the bottom carbon plate.

So I would like one for the underside of the frame. Anyone know what this sticky get pad is called as seems silly to pay £2.21 for a protection board, batt strap, 'landing pads' just to get a second sticky pad.

Ideally a UK source like ebay (as most UK RC Suppliers have prohibitive postage charges) would be great.

Cheers.

That's an idea, where do you get them?

Very useful stuff.  I use it all over the place, like in my tool box drawers to stop stuff sliding around too much.  The pound shop sells rolls of it.

Found the perfect thing.
It's a Silica gel pad 145mm x 90mm x about 2mm. It is designed for use on a dashboard to hold a mobile phone. I can get 2 or 3 battery pads out of it and it was only 59p in home bargains ::) It is squishy and slightly tacky and seems to stick quite well to carbon and battery.

Ive personally used a few different methods in the bast, including the dashboard gel pads that work pretty well unless they get even slightly moist (from landing on grass etc) after which they work like bloody ice instead, you just have to watch out for it and your fine.

now though I used a sticky foam pad methed I came up with.

You basically use the sticky backed foam pads you buy for furniture feet (so they dont scratch your lovely wood floor), you attach a large piece to your frame with a smaller square cut out its middle, you take the smaller piece and attach that to you battery, then the two interlock when strapped down, do the same with all you batteries and presto........feckers dont budge a millimetre even when your thrashing the poor frame :laugh:








alternively alot of frames (such as the zmr's) have standardized holes in their plates for frame add-ons and if you size it right the same foam will slot into them also...








been the best method Ive used so far and I havnt had a single battery slip since using it.

Very good to know the gel pads dont work when they get wet. I will watch out for that.
I like your interlocking pads system.
