The fuel tank bay and fuselage in front of the servo tray was the location for the battery pack and in order to feed these in with the greatest ease an angled lightply plate was constructed and keyed into the former at the rear of the tank bay and the firewall and fixed at the rear to some triangular section trailing edge stock. The battery ramp can be seen in the internal pictures. Battery retention is by a combination of a velcro strap and a lightply former that is wedged between the battery pack and two blocks let into and pinned to the fuselage sides. This keeps the battery rigid and immoveable, as it would be a shame if it fell out backwards.

For the power pack two 8 cell CP2400 NiCd packs were joined together to make a long block pack (Pictured) to give the required 16 cells. A 4 cell 650mah AAA receiver pack was installed below the battery tray in the tank bay.
