Default Great Planes Master Caddy

I just received the new prebuilt caddy. Come to find out the precut hole does not accommodate my power panel. The hole is way to big. I guess I could cut it to fit, but aren't there other brands that sit in there without having to cut it?
I have seen the picture and it looks like a small or mini power panel. The description of the caddy says the hole is cut to fit most power panels. Yeah OK.. which one. I live in a condo and it's not convenient for building.
Thanks for your help..
Michael

From Tower Hobbies web site:

COMMENTS: Pre-built version comes with decals that feature a slightly different
trim scheme than Kit version. This pre-built version also has black
drawer knobs)
The hole for the power panel is intentionally made smaller to
accommodate many different panels.

The hole is way too big??? I believe you mean small
In fact, you can buy the DuraTrax Kwik-Pit Mini Power Panel or the Hobbico MicroPanel Plus Pro Series.
THey are small enough to fit with minor adjustments and probably add wood as well.

Given that the power panel on this design fits on the removable APS, you really don't need more than what they offer: Just enough to get your engine started on the runway whwen you carry the APS with you
The DuraTrax has also a battery level indicator as well as a glow plug tester and heat adjustment.

GIve it a try, you can find both panel on towerhobbies website.
