    I have these side battery mounts, but I guess these are sort of in the air stream.

    So, I tried to put one battery inside and one hanging from the fpv mount on the back,.

    Balance feels good with the gimbal and all, split power cable is long enough

    But the battery will be close to the compass wire. Started her up, and no compass warning or something, not flown yet...

    But I thought I'd ask, is it ok?

    It only blocks this strange flashing light at the back a bit, never understood what its for anyway.

    (yes, funny gear extension, more sensible are on the way)

    Can you take another photo with more lighting / diff angle? hard to see what's going on there.

    It may be a status light, I think the manual might have some ideas...
