I think you will want to mount your battery behind the seat even with a light weight starter. I used an aluminum seat back with a cutout that follows the brace tubes of the fuselage. Then I attached a clear lexan cover over that opening with velcro strips to hold it in place. I use a seat parachute as a cushion so the seat back is plenty comfortable ( as one could expect) Then I can inspect the battery area during preflights by looking thru the lexan or quickly remove it for service to the battery. This systems has worked great for several years. I can email you some pictures if it would help.
