SCP 3 battery
#1

Just purchased 2 SCP3s, also purchased the recommended rechargeable battery  to fit into the handle however it does not fit . Before I start surgery on the controller with my dremel am I missing something? Any assistance would be greatly appreciated

I don't have the SCP3 (yet), but have browsed the user manual. The max dimensions the manual recommends for the battery are 45 x 28 x 10mm. The Turnigy Nano-Tech Plus 750mAh 1S 70C Lipo Pack that is illustrated in the manual is 54 x 31 x 8.4mm - too big!

There is an older, almost identical Turnigy pack (Nano-Tech, but not 'Plus') that measures in at 43 x 24 x 9mm - I wonder if this is the one Slot.it used? The SCP3 was in development for a while. Here's a pic...

   

There don't seem many around. I found one on eBay here. A Radio Control specialist retailer is going to be the best bet - either to source that older Turnigy Nano-Tech pack or something else that will fit.

@Hank That  would be great thanks
@Woodcote kinda sucks that the recommended one is too big makes me think that they didn’t do their homework

Here are the pictures, excuses for the delay.

As I wrote it is a standard battery for a Carrera wireless controller, you should be able to get one thru the normal resellers.
