Default Section 37: Roll Over Structure Question

Maybe this is obvious, but I will ask anyway.

Should I leave the roll over structure off until I put everything in the tailbone that needs to go in there. Like the pitch servo and the ELT.

IS there anything else that should go in the tail cone?

I'm 6'2" and 250, I can fit right back there into the luggage compartment with plenty of room. If I have glasses pushed up on to my head they will hit the rollbar but other than that it's all good.

I mostly had to go "back in" for some wiring cleanup and misc (installing the GPS antenna for example). I still have to connect the servo control rod. It's not terrible to work in.

Edit: building an RV keeps you loose, lots of interesting positions to twist into!
