Many thanks for your reply. It's been a while and I have gotten a bit further since then. I am now using a design very similar to the Vertepac XTR. While searching for easy to operate buckles I came across a company which also sells a lightweight carbon fibre infused nylon frame which I can easily alter into the form I want and convert to my needs.
In regards to your question, yes, of course I considered spreading the batteries across the body and make them easily exchangeable. I'm also fully aware of the issues and risks, so each compartment will allow quick disconnect and dumping. I've seen electronics doing 'impressive' stuff, so safety comes first!
However I do have another question. I'm experimenting on getting a really high gloss shine of my foam parts. So far I'm experimenting with flexipaint and home made mod podge. That gives me a shiny surface, but not really that highly polished shine of plastic / car paint. What can I do to get a really high shiny gel like gloss that is still somewhat flexible?
