Peter,
Good to hear that. I feel the same what you mentioned in the last paragraph. It once saved a plane when the connector with the main battery failed.

Best regards, Vincent

Now I could cover the bottom of the fuselage. I came up with a sanding tool so I could clamp the panels, otherwise my fingers would get cramped

A batten attached to my worktop with a screw clamp , a piece of aluminum angle and two large spring clamps. The sanding went a bit better now.
