  • Reman: I just half woke up, opened my eyes to check the time. and while doing this I subconsciously noticed something wrong with the shape of shadows on the other side of the room. That woke me up with a jolt!!!  It seems I've got so used to seeing my camera hex perched up on the set of draws in the corner of my bedroom that the area now looks strangely empty without it (I took it apart on Sunday to begin the rebuild into its new Y6 frame)...... And now I'm wide awake at bloody half one in the morning....... And feeling like a paranoid pillock. :(

I use this stuff,got it from local haberdashery/fabric shop. Its very light ,made from a foamy sort of plastic ,very good for gripping screw top jars that refuse to open. ::)  cheaper than chips.

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:
<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br />

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...
<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br />

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.
Cheers
