Actually the Vibe canopy only weights 131gr so we just saved 44gr lol

But mine is going to be painted... oh oh

I'm making a excel worksheet with all the data for my partical bird. I'll post it in a few minutes so you can change the values to your particular needs

If you put an align pipe instead of the hatori, you're saving at least 50gr already
There is little to no weight difference between the 'later' Align pipe and the Hatori 522.

In fact the Align is slightly heavier.

Really? Didn't know that.

Anyone knows the weight of the stock paddles?

Done

You can download the excel sheet here

Its now down to 3502gr (my particular case) IF:

a) stock paddles weight 20gr each
b) servo arms + links + one or other wire = 60gr
c) I don't paint the canopy
d) I forget the header tank

If you remove my toys (carbsmart, extra servo, switchglo, eagletree etc)
you can achieve 3402gr with the heavy 9351 servos.

Its a winner for me

Tony

PS - Most weights already include the associate wiring

Yes folowing the manual put in all bolts, level the frame then took each one out and lock tight. Then you have to do it for the engine instalation which is what i am just finishing.

The engine and shroud does not fall out like the trex. its a lot more work to drop. 4 screws, 6 nut and bolts and 4 bolts. that drops the base plate skids and engine with muffler & mount and shroud.

OR

5 small screws for the shroud inner 4 screws for shroud outer and muffler bolts and 4 engine bolts.
