good news , bad news.

Getting real close, and the closer i got the more i realized my estimated AUW has been blown by 10oz!!!!

The fiber glassing added 6oz to the air frame alone.

Current weight: 47oz 21oz sqft for wing loading and counting

That's with no paint, no landing gear and its gonna need them!

Did a quick power test, 460 watts isnt flying this pig!!!

Now i seen these dectrum units fly 3.5lb planes respectfully, but not these two units.

Balancing is a chore,
the hole is not big enough for either top flight mag ballencer or the great planes thumb ballencer. All i could do was get them close, then use the rotate and spin up method.

Still no love.I surprised i didn't blow them.

going to run them up out of the duct work take measurements.

Still need to figure out the cog of the my pig as well.
