Once everything is balanced and the plane flies well, get out a fine-tipped marking pen and outline where the batteries go. There's now no mistaking where everything should be going, especially since you're not supposed to charge your lipo batteries on the plane or you've got multiple battery packs so you don't have to field-charge.

How do I know this? Been there, done, that, got advise from another modeller that worked.

Re: Profile battery attachment trouble

Self stick velco from fabricland works well enough alone. I use it up to 1350MAH 3S packs over that I cut a slot above and below the battery location and add a double sided velco strap. Clean the battery with solvent or windex and remove stickers!!!(left on a warning label once and peeled the velcro right off the first time I removed the batt.) before sticking on the velcro.
Cut an over size square to stick on the plane so you can adjust the CG. I fly with forward CG in wind and move the batt. back on calm days.
I use the hook side on the batt and fuzzy on the plane. On the plane mark the outline and remove the covering then after sticking on the fuzzy side I go all around the edge with a tiny amount of thin CA to keep the edges from lifting. Speed control and rec. are stuck on the same way with no extra straps. Have never lost stuff in flight. Do not stick the velcro to the smooth side on a speed control. Thats the heatsink, yes stick it to the bumpy side and yes remove any stickers then clean well.
On the indoor stuff have tried the batt. slot and clear tape route.... landed lots of times with the batt. dangling.
