On my first model I had to cut a circular opening over the wing servo to access the swing arm.

I'm currently modifying that model. I prefer access to the electronics and battery from the top so I've sealed the bottom and building a top hatch that goes from 2 inches aft of the nose to just in front of the wing servo. I've built up the canopy as well. This has the additional advantage that when flying straight at you it's easier to see. On a cloudy day I've had problems with the plane disappearing momentarily because there is so little cross section when it turns. (us old guys). I'll post pictures tomorrow. Today I have a tooth extraction so wont be able to post today.
