5oz Or less 32'' 3D EPP Planes

Getting back to planes and flew one today,had flown a similar one over the summer but at average weight in the 6oz range with various set ups for power. Flew the lighter one today in the yard(breezy and cold but it went well considering the weather)... once you get a epp plane trimmed be ready to trim a little more when you maiden in the cold... was trimmed neutral to start and by the time i was back inside for a few minutes all the surfaces were out of trim again . Tryed a couple packs and with common gear its currently 4.9oz or 141g with the current set up. The lightest auw with a lighter pack was just about 4.5oz.. thats very light for a standard size 32'' 3d plane.. most are in the 6oz plus range. Will be doing more stuff for indoor weights and planes over the winter and have more epp and other stuff ordered.

Testing stuff over the summer.
