I am not crazy about cutting hatches, I don't mind removing the wing to swap out batteries. Turnigy 5000 mah packs fit right in the spot where the tank would go so I am shooting to make a battery tray there, but I wont know for sure until I get more work done. I got the elevator hinged, will be working on the rudder and tailwheel next. I ordered some higher torque servo's for the elv./rudder. They are both pull/pull set ups. Nice that the hardware for the elevator is hidden in the fuse. There is a hatch at the rear which I may make my air exit for cooling. I want to get everything finished so all that will be left is to mount the motor and esc., I don't have the cash yet anyway. Plus I will know the approx. weight so I can figure out which hacker outrunner I want to use!
