They look cool... really dang heavy though.

Not that bad, 5oz for a 36in foamy.:confused:

Bleh, for a mylar covered airplane with very little bracing, that's pretty bad. I would expect much closer to 3.5oz, no more than 4...

I agree, but I would not want a 36" freestyle plane that weighed 3.5oz.;)

A little bit of carbon can't hurt.;)

Exactly. Good reason not to mylar cover a freestyle airplane, apparently not doing much more than reducing strength! 5ish oz is achievable with a totally un-milled airframe without much work.

I think that it should have been milled (instead of "cut and covered" ):D
Because milling would increase strength and add a little bit of weight, (so you would not have to reinforce with carbon, SO much :)

Good points guys, I'll see what the forums say when they arrive, I'm sure someone will try one. I may still get one and beef it up with extra carbon.
