LiPo Battery Straps

JT&T Products Strip-Tie Hook & Loop Velcro Cable Fasteners
If you have ever flown a collective pitch helicopter, 3D airplane or multirotor, you know how important it is to have a strap around the LiPo battery. Sometimes manufacturers don’t supply a battery strap, or a good quality battery strap, so I wanted to source some to have on hand. While shopping locally at Fry’s Electronics one day, I ran across these JT&T Products Strip-Tie Hook & Loop Velcro cable fasteners. They come in different lengths and were available in white and multicolor packs. I bought a couple different lengths for less than $8 each for a 10-pack of 6″ and an 8-pack of 8″. The hook and loop material–not sure if actual Velcro brand–is strong and I haven’t had any break or come apart yet. I bought white because they can be painted or dyed with Rit Fabric Dye if needed to match something. Epoxy holds well to them also if needed.

The above LiPo battery strap was painted yellow on top to match the top color on a Hacker HotWing 750 flying wing. This particular strap was painted with Krylon Short Cuts but any paint should work on the straps.

The above LiPo battery strap was dyed red with Rit Fabric Dye to match the pod on an inexpensive China-manufactured 30in flying wing. It actually did match until the factory red paint fell off the flying wing pod! 😀
