I had a PM request to show the layout of my Zeph. Since I can't send images in a PM I thought I'd just post the images here... I hope that they are of use.

Sorry for the blurry pic. UHF receiver and vex on opposite wings
lam and vinyl over all components except the vtx for cooling
Battery compartments cut with knife and soldering iron. Thin ply epoxied to the bottom of the foam for rigidity and to hold the velcro strap. Battery wires enter main compartment through tunnel in the foam
All nice and snug. The hatch closes flush.
Layout of the working bits. I used a plastic spoon to make an air inlet on the hatch directly over the speed controller, and also cut away a lot of the rear of the compartment for airflow
