Default Sig 4 Star 20 ep Top Hatch

Hello everybody. I am building a Sig 4 Star 20 ep and am ready to add a top battery hatch. The ones I have seen on posts here look great to me. I just need to know a few dimensions. How far back from the firewall and how long is the hatch opening. I plan to use a 2200mah 20c 3S1P Lipo battery.Thanks for your time.

Default Sig 4 Star 20 ep Top Hatch Specs

Thanks Chellie for the links. I found what I needed to know there. Below are some pictures of how I made my hatch. It was cut 3/4" back from firewall and extended back to the T1 top former. The hatch was enclosed at both ends and tongues were added at the front and rare earth magnets at the back. The battery sets between blocks at both ends and is secured with a Velcro strap. Makes for quick and easy battery swaps. My Yorkie even liked it.
