    velcro battery straps.. what do you use?

    so i bought the HR velcro battery strap for the maxx and the hardware seems nice however the given velcro strap is extremely way too small to run the 4s. i'd like to know what you guys use in terms of velcro set up before i send this back... if possible id like to get a larger velcro strap and keep the HR hardware but i am kind of disappointed with them for including a useless strap.

    I use the medium sized straps from PureTech for my Slash 4x4 LCG running 3S or 4S:

    Just pick the size you need.

    After this crash I also use the medium size from PureTech. Picked up mine from Amain Hobby’s. Just clean the surface of the battery tray with alcohol before you stick it on and you’ll be good to go.

    Several drone companies manufacture Kevlar reinforced straps, the standard straps have given up on me in my X-Maxx but the battery weigh is significant

    That looks correct for their medium sized black colored Velcro quick mount.

    I got a 3 pack at Lowes for about $7 and can cut them so really a 6 pack.

    The ones from PureTec cost more but they work great. It’s held in place with super strong adhesive so there’s no cutting the chassis or modifying anything.

    UPDATE:

    so i submitted a return for the HR velcro strap kit for the traxxas maxx (#MXX126X06) on ebay which is where i bought them from and the seller, a hobby shop in NY messaged me about the return and ultimately offered a partial refund rather than sending the item back. sure so i found the exact strap i needed and sent them the link. well they gave me a partial refund so i could purchase the correct velcro strap that will fit the 4s battery in the traxxas maxx. i thought this was cool of them to offer this deal to me so if you ever end up with a HR velcro strap kit for your traxxas maxx you need these velcro straps to make it work:
