There will be a strip of velcro at the front of the tray and on the battery to keep it from sliding back during flight and a velcro band around the battery and tray to hold it firm. That way it cant "rattle" around the nose area. I could have lined the nose area with foam, that would have been simpler, but I decieded to complicate the issue.

I like the hatch idea so I wouldn't have to remove the wing to change batteries, but the tray isn't needed, you just need to "secure" the battery in the nose. The tray seemed more secure to me.
