Decided I'd mount the canopy permanently and cut the hatch for the gear from the bottom.
I glued the fan in the nacelle and made a detachable front end held with rare earth magnets to provide acess for maintenance.
Mounted the servos in a foam tray glued in the fuselage. Added a bulkhead behind the servos for mounting pushrod tubes. Pitch/yaw/roll control via ruddervators.
