WARNING! THIS IS NOT THE STOCK SET UP, I(and I'm sure J.) do not recommend these modifcations. When you go outside manufacture specs its a lot of work to get things just right. If you purchase everything from J. as a matched set, you wont have any problems.

That being said the reason I made these mods was to make a small plane fly like a big plane. I over power my planes because I fly in the wind. I also wanted longer flight times. Today I think I went over 12 min.

J. Karpy makes some of the best planes on the market. I should know I have 3 of them, and I still need a 3DX. Thanks J.!
I am at 7.25 oz so you are not too far off.
