Battery Relocation Kit

Product Description

The Battery Relocation Kit provides provisions to install a high capacity lead acid or nickel cadmium battery in the tail boom removing the standard aircraft battery located in the right hand (RH) cargo compartment. It reduces the need for aft aircraft ballast and increases the usable space in the RH cargo compartment. The battery is mounted on a removable tray in the left hand (LH) side of the tail boom. The battery relocation kit is ideal for balancing aircraft equipped with heavily loaded instrument panels.
