A4 - Interceptor
400 - Can
I use a larger lipo, and if so, how ?
Yes, of course
you can, BUT there is one problem when trying to do so.
Interceptor 400 Lipo battery tray is rather too short by design, and
many of us extend this underneath using some 3mm Plastikard or
similar material to provide more support for larger lipos.
issue is that the standard canopy that comes with the Interceptor
400 is not large enough to allow you to mount a longer lipo battery,
so you do need to obtain a different canopy. These are not
always the easiest things to find, but I can now offer these very
reasonably in both deformable white plastic and in nicely painted
fibreglass. Both types allow much larger lipos to be fitted
look very similar to the standard canopy, they are actually
considerably longer, allowing room for the large 2200MAh 25C lipos
we all like to use if we can, such as the RapidCharge lipos from
Heliguy at only £20 or so.

for fitting larger lipos to the Interceptor 400
the size and weight of the lipo you chose, you may also find that
the COG (Centre of Gravity) is then too far forward. The
easiest solution for this is to take 2 £1 coins and tape them onto
the vertical fin at the back of the helicopter. I have found
that these will normally correct the COG perfectly.
