Can anyone tell me if the Lithium battery is included already in the
remote on the AK-450 ELT? I have the remote unit installed and need
to send someone shopping for batteries for the ELT today and I'm
not sure if I need to send them out for the 1 DL 1/3 NB Lithium AND the
D-Cell batteries, or if the lithium is already in the remote....which
is mounted in a hard to reach area from the back.

Thanks to all who replied. Yes, mine came with a battery
in the remote I found so it's all installed and
ready for a crash. Wink

Protective covering removal
I'm about ready to start work on the enpennage of 40541.
Question
How do I remove a narrowstrip of the plastic covering over the rivet holes without scratching the surface?
How long can the covering remain on the pieces before it becomes difficult to remove.?

If you search the archives you'll find that removing strips of the covering is done with a soldering iron and straight edge.  As for how long the stuff can stay on, I bought kit #40137 over a year ago so it's probably 4+ years old now.  Just last week I started removing the covering from the tailcone skins and it's no problem.  The stuff peels right off.  I can tell you that if you put it in front of some heat for a few seconds it peels off much easier.

Sounds like a good Wiki topic!
 
Bill, how do you figure 4+ years?  They started delivering kits in October of 2003 . . .

OOPS!!  Meant to type 2+ years.  My kit was delivered to it's original owner in Nov./Dec. 2003.  I've heard people say that if the covering was left on for long periods of time that it is hard to remove.  Mine has been on for more than 2 years and it's not a problem yet.  Maybe it will be eventually but hopefully I won't have to worry about that.

  This is a good point to remind all of the newer builders to check the archives before they post questions.  Plenty of discussion around this in the past and no need to take up bandwidth discussing it yet again.  Also, please be sure you are using "do not archive" unless you feel your question or comment is useful to someone else down the road.  Lastly, make sure you change the subject line to reflect the accurate topic.

I used a hot soldering iron.  I don’t know how long you can leave it on.  I have had my kit for a year, and it is about the same. 
 
Have fun with your kit……it has been a great 13 months so far for me.
