Not to worry, the battery cables are secured well away from the tank. That was just an early wiring test. I weighed the idea of putting it in the baggage compartment but didn't want to compromise that area. Besides, the tank is extremely light compared to the AC unit and autopilot servos. Since I knew my panel is going to be relatively heavy with the G900X, not to mention AC compressor on the engine and metal constant speed prop, I'm not anticipating unusual CG problems (just the usual ones). Notice that I built a custom battery box for a 28V battery and even so, the relays are well away from the system. The servo on the other side was much closer, though it would have worked. It was the AC unit that was the conflict.
