Buy a plane, work to pay it off buy another and repeat. It really is a vicious cycle.

Re: equipment mount (servos batterys reciver an ful tank)
My first instinct it to go with 2 separate ones. It's a bit more trouble to make initially, but when you remove the fuel tank, throttle and choke assembly, you won't disturb the rudder servo, antenna wire securements, etc
Maybe mount the rudder servo and Rx by themselves near the rear of the cabin on a pair of beams and then it'll be back to one removable plate? Throttle and choke servos are often smaller. Maybe they could be mounted to the sides of the fuse so the tank can be pulled out between them?
It really depends on the aircraft, how it balances, linkage type, etc.
Usually I arrange my servos (some distance back from the fuel tank securement) so that they do not need to be disturbed to remove the fuel tank and vise versa. I also prefer mounting beams over plates. Trays tend to block a lot of access and are sometimes heavier (they tend to look cleaner though)....
You're welcome to PM me with more specific information, questions, etc.
