8 9g servos + arms = 96g
motor+ESC+8040 = 60g
3s lipo=?
5mm depron control surfaces+skirt=?

I have 2 GY48Vs coming, they are 20g a piece.
Here is the motor:
I'll have to calculate the thrust and see if it can lift the ball!

I'm trying to keep the weight down!
EDIT: As a side, HK has these new cheapy ($10) MEMS gyros, GA-250, that are very small and light. Look a bit difficult, but would be great for this project.

I'm still wondering about gyro placement. 4 gyros, 2 for the four elevon surfaces, and 1 for the rudder and 1 for the elevator? Following this model, I'll need to get 4 servo Y-cables?
