Cockatoo 08 Radio Box

Hi  I am overhauling my Cockatoo which has the radio and battery fixed inside the hull with velcro under a square deck patch.  I'm thinking there must be an access method that doesn't involve taking the patch off every time. 

Cheers

Thankyou for your observations. Battery changing is not an issue as one charge is more than enough for our club mornings.  I will do as suggested and stick with a patch but fit a deck switch so I don't have to lift the patch to turn on when I get to the lake in case it's raining and the patch won't stick 'cos it's wet.  One day I might fit a pot in the style of the Sailsetc solution and use the rudder servo patch for ventilation.

Incidentally I have two fan belts fixed to my garage roof that go round the fin and support the hull vertically so any water can drain from the bow hole which greatly speeds up drying.

Cheers

Trevor
