28 Mar 08 - I built this slightly differently to the instructions as I fitted 2 battery packs in the 'noses' rather than fit lead in one.  Both packs have their own switch and charging point, and a battery meter is fitted to the RX to allow voltage checking.  The packs can be switch on individually or together depending on the charge state.  It is covered with a mixture of Oracover (white), SolarFilm (blue and black) and EasyCote (red and silver).
