That seems to be higher than anyone else's reported Alula weight, and I haven't even painted mine yet!
i think mine started at 5.5oz before balancing and then i added about 1/2oz. dont worry about the weight. it shouldnt be a big problem, even for flatland flying. a heavier plane will launch higher anyway. dont sweat it. just fly it
cheers
