I just got my new G36C 2GX (with the smaller handguard) a few days ago and my new 11.1v Lipo batteries arrived today from elite airsoft batteries They are Mini Type. ... but they wont fit in the handguard. They are not too long or too wide, they are too tall. The handguard slides on but wont go the last 1/4 inch because the guides inside the front of the handguard won't line up with the slot they slide into. It seems other people had no issues with this... seems kinda silly a lipo ready gun wont fit a mini lipo battery : (
I also recieved a 7.4v lipo that does fit (barely) due to a shipping error... but the 11.1 shoots so much better.
the 11.1 dimensions are 5/8" Tall (too tall), 3 3/4'' long, 1 1/4'' wide
The 7.4 dimensions are 1/2" Tall (just fits), 3 3/4" long, 1 1/4" wide
1) Has anyone purchased an 11.1v lipo that does fit in this handguard? What brand, where did you buy it, what shape was it?
2) Can anyone suggest an aftermarket handguard that will accomidate a larger battery?
3) Any suggestions to safely modify the handguard for fitment?
4) What is the maximum dimension battery that will fit?
