Continuing with the front end…

The cowl covers the front end of the battery compartment rather thoroughly. IOW, unless you have baby fingers or a pair of hemostats, you ain't getting your mitts up in there when the cowl is in place.

I'm specifically referring to strapping down the battery before flight. After some thought, I decided to fabricate a "fixed" front strap, of sorts… one that I didn't need to deal with, yet would prevent any lateral movement of the pack in flight. I used velcro and a standard battery strap at the back of the stick (where I can get my hands into) to actually secure the battery pack.
