    Interested in seeing some pics of how you guys mounted your wkm in the cinestar 8. I wish there was an optional carbon tray they offered for wkm users since the frame seems tailored to the mk setup. Thanks

    Hey Twister...

    I made custom cut 1.5mm carbon fibre plates to hold the batteries.

    The Plates are zip tied to the booms and frame and then the batteries secured on top with velcro straps.

    I got a local guy locally who makes and designs robots, so i got him to help me with the plates.

    =)
