Speedy Bee battery location?

I'm scratching one up. Planning to use a 3s 2200 mah - and I'm just about to button up the bottom sheeting - wondering where I should put the hatch?

Could anyone with similar tell me where there battery wound up for balance? Just need a range so I can jig up a battery mount plate and locate a hatch.

Thanks!

Speedy Hatch

Aviron, I made the front cowl removable with magnets, to fashion a battery compartment.

Ok - that's about where I was headed with a hatch. So, does your battery end up being located right behind the firewall?

What's your power setup? Eflight..10? is it? ESC? batt size?

I flew this Speedy on a 3S 1100 pack and an Eflight 1020Kv motor. I recommend more power than that, but it works. I installed this motor just before the rash of highly affordable motors came onto the market. This Speedy is now a hangar queen, very much like you see in the pic.

I ended up using a Turnigy 480-something or other good for about 200 watts, and 3s 2100mah pack. With pack pressed up against firewall, i needed to add about 2 oz. of weight to nose to get balance. AUW is 2.5 pounds or so.
