If I can get out on Monday, I'll get some photos.
I got it on trade already equipped, just missing the ESC, receiver and battery, I will fly it in Electric.

Hey Joe,
Theres a hatch over the wing area to get into the cockpit. Reach down for the battery area. Alot of room inside for those 10-12 cell batteries.
Thanks, Richard

Yea, the Phoenix area has grown to 27 cities and well over 3.3 million people. More in the other cities.
I am planning on taking the Howard DGA-12 out for pictures tomorrow.
