looks like he's using the dewalt pack itself, without removing the cells inside...

Fred I have to think he has it that way just simply for charging and the extra weight to make CG on the plane. I had never seen the three 12 volt packs for 36 volts total used this way and just thought it would of interest to some of our members.

ahhhh, ok, needing extra weight makes sense.

oh, and charging too....


I have heard of people removing the cells, as well as buying "replacement" cells. I had just never seen it done with the original pack like that.
