I have the Red Production pack and the drive Cradle seems pretty bulky and I'm having trouble mouting it anywhere but at the back bottom. I'm looking for any and every way to cut and redistribute the weight.
It seems to me that something could be made to hold the drive and battery separately to put one on the top and one on the bottom or on a side handle?
To hold the drive: maybe a half cage to give the rails on the side of the drive something to slip in to, but then have a flat plate at the back to mount it directly to a side handle.
The Quick plate seems like an option for the battery, but it's expensive and I already have the plate and cable that I could unscrew from the Cradle--it seems like a lot of money to get a metal plate and hinge for $500 (when I would end up with a duplicate of the plate and cable).
