Default 450 pro battery and canopy questions

Hello all,
I just purchased new to me a 450 pro, this is my first heli. I need to order new batteries for it and have a few questions. I thinking a 2250 MAH 3S 35C minimum. The canopy has two holes on each side which there is a rubber grommet on one hole, the furthest one back from the front. Now I think he may have made the other hole because of the batteries being physically longer. Am I correct on this or is there two holes on each side from the factory? Second I would like to purchase my new batteries from Hobby King, could some one tell me what batteries would physically fit so the canopy fits correct if in fact there only should be one hole.
Thank you,
Pat

Any of the turnigy, zippy or nano-tech 2200 3s will fit no worries. If there is a second hole in your canopy then they were probably running a bigger battery and the canopy needed to be moved forward. There should only be one set of holes standard. There's not a lot room under there. 35C+ will be ok.

Like ahamay said, there should be only one set of holes. I've run Nano tech's, Pulse, Gens Ace 2200 3s 25 - 45C w/ no issues on fit. Good luck & keep us posted

Helllo all,
Thank you for the replies. I like the Nanotech batteries, can someone tell me what exact one there using and will fit correctly ( I'd like to buy a new canopy and use the stock holes on the sides). I'm looking at the Nanotech dimensions and see the difference in sizes for example the Nanotech 2200mah is actually larger than the 2250 mah and there is also the Nanotech Atech battery. I'd like to be sure before my purchase, and is the Atech a better battery.
Thanks again for all you help,
Pat

Most if not all 2250 3s packs will fit no problem.  Don't sweat it.
