The factory does not supply the aluminum needed to reinforce the tray, so that meant a trip to Home Depot. In the end, everything came out quite nicely, but it took me many more hours than I expected to get everything to fit properly.

Fuselage - Battery Tray Top (1)

The top side of the battery tray temporarily in place in the front of the fuselage.

The next step is to install the landing light. Click here for that process!
