Just thought I would post a couple of pic of my H9 Corsair to electric conversion. Had the E-Flite 60BL installed but decided to add top access hatch for battery change in with out removing wing. Pined at from and spring release at front - easy to do from everyday parts. Will finish with top hatch sheeting etc. All edges are 1/32 ply to keep sharp.
Well cant seem to get pics to load - try later
Still cant get em to load- after I select file and click upload I wait for a very long time and then the upload screen goes white then nothing else happens. I check save changes hoping pictures will attach but no luck - I will post in the Warbird section of RCU and see what happens.

I made a top hatch for my H9 Corsair (http://www.rcuniverse.com/buynow/keywordclick.cfm?bid_id=4009) after I decided to go electric and wanted battery access. Could not get pics to post at Watt Flyer so I am posting here so they can be seen - I appologize if electric stuff is not supposed to be posted in this section - but mabey someone likes the hatch. Spring latch is made from 40 rod with collars and light hardware (http://www.rcuniverse.com/buynow/keywordclick.cfm?bid_id=991) store spring. Latch trigger is the larger size servo arm EZ rod connector. The 40 rod slids thru connector and locks with set screw (http://www.rcuniverse.com/buynow/keywordclick.cfm?bid_id=1636) - servo arm pin becomes a stud to which I zapped a tite fitting piece of brass tube to extend above finish hatch. Balsa bloch at back just serves as rod stop. Wheel collars become travel adjusters and stops. About 10 minuits to make.

Hatch sheeting is being applyed and will be recovered
