Most Sky Surfer fuselages are held together with double-sided scotch (cello?) tape. After removing weight, you should probably use another piece of double-sided tape or just CA it back together or ??-your choice. Let me know how it goes.
P.S. If CA was originally used to join the fuselage halves together; then, surgery is required - Get out the #11 blade.

I think you nailed it. I do have a V2. Since I have had a number of "nose hits" I have added clear packing tape along the top and bottom fuse seam. I will have to cut into that to take it apart but I don't know how fragile the nose will be when I cut the tape.

What I was thinking about was to go thru the internal wall between the cockpit and the space that holds the weight. It is no longer glued in place so should be easy to remove once i have a big enough hole. That would also enlarge the space for the larger 2200mah battery.
