That's a good point there Thrawn, I've been thinking where to mount the batteries and how to access them myself. It seems a spot could be made for them over the wing pushed forward towards the cowl. I think this is my only option.

To access them. I only see two options, one is to remove the wing every time the other is to open a hatch forward of the canopy. Neither of them sound too attractive but I think I'll end up going with te hatch option.

Here is a pic of how the battery sits in the fuse pushed flush to the firewall (this is a 4S 4800mah pack). The second pic should give an idea of how forward the pack sits. A hole could be cut in the firewall to push the pack further into the cowl should there be need for CG adjustments.
