Thank you Thomas!

The Neos (pictured below) as presented last Saturday. All up weight of airframe plus components in accessories bag is 180.54g. Weight of 3 JR DS285's, Hyperion 1S 550mAh LiPo, R6203SB receiver is 54.6g.
For a total of 235.14g (8.4oz.) w/o glue, hardpoints and possible servo tray. Should easily achieve a flying weight of under 10 ounces.
Plans are to install all the 285's in the pod but will check for proper CG during construction and if need be will change plans and go with two D47's (or DS09's) in the wing.
Going to follow Thomas's recommendations and try rudderless (my first rudderless ship).
Planning to have the Neos ready for the next SASS contest in May.
