      I enjoy most aspects of building airplanes, but my favorite part of building an airplane is building the fuselage, especially stick building fuselages. Something about stick building a fuselage brings me a lot of joy.

            I have a couple ideas for the fuselage. I don't know about you, but I think I'm going to like it.

                  Not nearly as sexy of a picture as the fuselage sides coming together, but 'sexy' isn't a word that comes to mine when someone thinks of a battery box. Nonetheless...

                    Some more un-sexy but necessary tasks completed.

                        if i had one thing i would change on this plane it is the access to the rx through the top canopy hatch. i would have cut away the entire hatch box slanted sides and all and had it remove with magnets and the canopy be glued in place to that box. then i could get two hands inside together for rx install and such. also i would make the battery box a tad bigger in height by moving the floor plate down some so it fits the newer battery packs such as the 5000 30c smart packs.. the size in the build is restrictive to older low c and 4000 size pack max.

                        your build can still be modified if you choose these options... you will thank me one day when you swap out a rx or such..

                          I agree with these comments. I am really enjoying my Skylark and I did enlarge the cockpit area during my build......see my comment #72 in JimD's build thread. This modification has provided excellent access inside the fuselage and has stayed in place using the stock recess and magnet in the front. Also, the stock battery box does restrict the choice of batteries. I would also have made mine larger after scoping out the different battery mfr's.
