I have a few ideas but haven't settled on anything yet. Each one has something to offer, and something missing, you know what I mean. I'll try and settle on one and post by the end of the week.

Also thinking we can build a simple drop in box , with access from the top of the fuse that sits behind the firewall but still ahead of the CG .
I'm thinking about making the cowl have hinged hatches on each side to allow access to batteries, rx switch/charge, air fill, etc.

Mpope, thanks for weighing in. Saw your flight video of your Mustang. Congrats! I agree that even up to 20lbs this corsair should be OK also long as speed is carried appropriately.
