Hatch

Funny you should mention that. Right now in my repair job I'm doing the hatch and tightening that up just a little. Yes I added it. Without it you would have to stick batteries in from the nose gear area and that is just not fun. So get your dremel tool out and go for it. If your airframe is not busted up it should be a semi-easy task. And you will have the ability to install your batteries without flipping any thing over and will be more functional as well when at the field. You'll need to add some form of attachment for the forward hatch in order to secure it. I used some ply and made a frame. I also did the same for the fuselage to enable the hook type latches BVM sells to be used as slide forward and snug down on the hatch.

Well good luck on the modification. I did it on my sport shark too and it works great.

I have some more body work on this bird and then it's time for paint and then I can put electronics back in the airframe.
