The all-up flying weight still came out to only 31.7 oz, however, which isn't bad compared to what I've read about other Gabbys. It is a fun plane to fly. I'm sure you will have lots of fun with yours.
Hi George... did you put your servos under the TE of the wing or under the canopy?... Sal recommended a 4 cell AAA 760mah, but I already have a NiMH AAA 4cell that is rated at 800mah... The weight is 51g/~1.8oz... I plan to dry fit everything and balance before committing to any particular arrangement of guts...
