Based on my research, I can triple the power and battery capacity and still have the power system weigh less than the original. That said, I have no intention of overpowering it. I might be able to fly all day on one battery. I remember Obechi as being a closed grain wood. If I can find some Obechi or Basswood (which I also think is closed grain wood). I could do a few test panels to quantify the weights of various finishes. My scale goes down to .01 grams.
I'll go back to listening as I don't want to hijack the thread further. Thanks for the insights.
