I wanted some FPV footage with the 170 degree wide lens but I didn't want to risk her without consulting with you guys first.

I haven't flown mine in a while, but I think my AUW was right at 48 ounces, and she flew just fine! However, I've got landing gear on mine, so my takeoff a are a bit faster than yours will be with a hand launch. I'd recommend that you get a good running start... and if it doesn't work out for you, let me know... I've still got a brand new LX kit in my garage... :-)
