Brown - Tarr is right. You will be adding a lot of weight to those 800 mah batteries. To answer your earlier question, my servos are under the canopy, but they are small DS285's. I took my battery out to weigh it and discovered 1.5 oz in lead taped to the battery. Total weight of battery and lead 6.5 oz. I must have a light layup because as stated earlier, even with this, AUW came out less than 32 oz. Tarr is also right about the plane being squirrley. It is difficult to fly smooth at slow speeds. That being said, it is still a decent performer. If you keep the airspeed up it can be flown smoothly and will respond to thermals. Build quality is excellent. Good luck.
