REFLECTOR: Front control bearing

Not sure about retracts, but in the fixed gear planes, wouldn't it be wise to put an inspection plate on the other side of the keel to inspect this bearing every so often.  Even when a fix is determined, I would think that it should still be inspected to make sure that the fix really fixed the problem and not just prolonged it.  Inspection plates are a lot easier to take off than a canard, for those that do not have the RBH.
But using a flange and nutplates, the inspection plates should not compromise the integrity of the keel in any way.
