And as always, thanks for the replies.
I put 200 lb. of me back there when I'm doing the condition inspection! I throw a sheet of 3/4" plywood in there to stand on, to better spread out the load.
My 9A is pretty light up front, with a Catto FP prop and the light SkyTech starter. Even so, with nearly empty tanks (2 gal. total) and two 200-lb. souls, I can use 90 lb. of the 100-lb. baggage capacity. If the starter ever fries itself, I'll buy a heavier one!
Heavy stuff toward the front of the compartment is always a good idea.
