    You make wedges from the foam block, they keep it perfectly secure.My lid does not open above the battery, my bat slides in the nose, the lid opens behind the back end of the battery. This allows you to make a snug pocket for the bat out of the fuse plug.
    Your wing shipped out today BTW

    Not blaming or flaming you Chris. You did an incredible job and big respect for that.

    I'll drop you an email so you could perhaps double check.

    It's just that we have had some issues in the near past with the post services delivering my packages to the wrong adress a few times. I just would become crazy if I see some kid flying my Drak

    Would like to hear how you balance your plane in this case should you change your gear configuration later on or change batteries.

    That's easy, make all plugs that hold the battery removable and adjustable. Then adjust as needed. It's that easy. On my small bats they go way forward, on my big bats they sit back and have a spacer in the nose holding them back so it CG'S

    Chris, thanks for the explanation why gluing the front hatch. Makes perfect sense now that I think about it.

    Jeeze, this kit is so cool.
