Sorry to hear of your *ahem* 'Ground breaking ceremonies' Beanzy....but there's always (?hopefully?) the value of the lessons learned, right?

I for one can see advantages of developing some kinda 'zipper kit' for repeated & easy removal/replacement of that nose cone. Motor access. So, thanks for sharing!

My #1 concern about this plane is its tendency to loosen its motor-mount screws. It's possible (my analysis) the Brake setting might be contributing to that....and IIRC it's On by default with this bird. It's something I want to check frequently, for sure, & keep a close eye on. Better access would make that an easier chore, plus enable experimentation. Now, how to best 'zip' the cowl & not mess up the looks? Hmmmmm.....
