Bmanfly.... yes, you are correct there is a Velcro strip along the right side of the plane just above the ESC. I plan on try a couple different motor and battery combos with the model for comparison sake and did not want to lock my self into a specific location (and size) for the battery at this time. I may, when finding the combination that I like best, cut a slot for the battery. Shown location for the battery with this build put the CG within the mfg's specified range.
Rx and servo leads... 12" extensions are shown in my build, which very much limited the placement of my Rx, for more flexibility, longer extension would be nice. Twisted Hobbys' has some 16 inch extensions that would work nicely. Make sure you bury the Rx in the fuse if mounting in an area around the ailerons.
