    If you use these types of "side mount wings," do be careful, especially if you are pairing them them with the Phantom 2's "9443" 9" props. There have been several reports of extreme instability on descent while using these mounts - they present more roll profile to the quad and place the batteries directly in the prop wash. If you use them, it's recommended that you descend slowly and never straight down (always add some elevator/aileron to your descents).

    What I did is got myself the NEEWER FPV undertray. I pick up a long velcro strap from a hobby store and used it to mount either 2 2200s or 1 5200 at the back of the craft. The flying has been much better with this center of gravity than when I used the wing dual mounts - the maneuverability was awful with the dual wing mounts.
