See here . Mostly about the battery box. A couple of pictures of the battery. I never put a cover on it, left it all open. Good power starter.

I purchased 4 3300 MAH LiFe cells from Battery Space http://www.batteryspace.com/LiFePO4-...gle-Cells.aspx and built a custom box for my starter. I still need to purchase a four cell balance lead so I can balance the cells while charging. Flying weather has been terrible here so I can't give a good idea on how long it lasts but so far I have only charged once and added about 900 Mah to each cell. I added a Deans "T" connector to the power cord so the pack can be removed for charging or maintenance.
