Default attaching batts to shocky

Hi, How do you all attach your batteries to your shock flyer. I am thinking of in-larging the opening in the fues and useing velcro. Should I add a strap, or do they wedge it there good enough? I will be usind 3 cell lipo 350-500 mah. Any Suggestions would be appreciated as this is my first Shocky build.

I use velcro tape to attach the battery to the side of the fuselage. Works fine on the Ikarus shock flyer.

I use velcro on my Animal. Lay a long strip along the stiffener and put some on the battery and just strap it down.

In my shocky I use velcro to attach the battery in the centre of the fuse cutout on the bottom of the wing. I also put a small piece of foam on top of the battery to take up the space between it and the fuse. Works good. There is no way the battery would come out in flight.
