What type of scale are you guys using? Post office mail scale? Food scale? Bathroom body scale? I know for a fact some scales are off +-1 lb or more. It is ok too to weigh the heli and battery seperately and add the numbers.

Sam2b he used the same scale for all the helis, so it at least proves that the E7 is lighter.

beeflyer2,

That is not accurate enough for Runryder posts, you need to weigh it on a 1/10th gram scale otherwise nobody will believe you. Make sure you have the calibration certificate ready as well.

Here you go.... this one is Runryder disbeliever ready.

If you want to "prove" that a scale is calibrated, put something like a Coke can or a 16oz bottle of water on it and take a photograph. There are lots of cheap $50 or $75 scales which are good enough to be within +/- 10 grams. When you're talking about a 4500 gram helicopter, being within 10 grams above or below the actual weight is plenty precise for anyone who has half a brain.

Mines 10.9 lbs RTF with rapala fish scale, that's with 4400mah/1425gram packs. To put it in perspective that's a full 1-1.5lbs lighter then whiplash reports so IMO LIGHT!

That's also a full half+ pound lighter then my 700rex and Compass 7hv

Now when TT is out it'll add some weight but I'm betting very little and still much lighter then others out there.

...Once upon a time there were Nitros, flybars and frequency pins...

Any one have an idea of what a 7 would weigh with a 10s 4000 set up. Looking at 1.2k in batteries. I plan on using a 1900 head speed with 690's. I am not a stick banger, just a sport/light 3d guy. Also looking at a BEC and lighter 4025 scorpion motor since I don't need 3000 plus watts of power. Hoping to get in at just a hair over 10lbs or less. I am figuring I can save a bunch of weight with smaller motor and 10s with bec.

Anyone have a weight of machine bare bones? Than I can figure out my weight.

Sorry to dig up an old thread, but I found this interesting, as I'm currently considering an E7. But I fly a Logo 600SE right now that weighs in at 4.0kg with Lipo's (10S 45C 4500's). You can eat a sandwich after hitting TH before she decides to settle to earth.

Of course, the 600SE is limited to ~1950 rpm before you start bending blade bolts, hence the reason I'm looking at the E7.
