Default Help :) how is on-board gear situated in a low wing plane?

I'm sort of a newbie at RC airplanes, and I only have a trainer right now. I'm curios to know how servos, recviever, and reciever battery are situated in a low winged aircraft. Does the cockpit come off, or do you have to turn the plane inverted and take off the wing to get to the fuse? Thanks so much, I just wanted to know because I'm desiging a plane on Autocad.

Thanks-Brian

You have to take the wing off, and stuff all the goodies into the fuse from the bottom!!
No other way possible!!!!!

If you are asking that question, does it indicate you are designing a one piece airplane? If that is the case then I would suggest you change the design to a removable wing model.

It is a removable wing design, but i need to know if low-winged aircraft usually have their servos mounted at the top of the the fuse (when horizontal) or on the bottom of the fuse (when horizontal)?

I do not understand your question.

Here is what I do. I install all of the radio equipment as deep into the fuselage as I can looking through the wing hole. If the aileron servo is on the top of the wing ensure there is no interference between the servo, pushrods and, the installed radio equipment.
