The brick is 18mm long x 25mm wide.
Removed about half the velcro from the battery and the airframe. Snipped off the excess length of the wire tie used to retain the wires on the fuselage stick. Removed the the backside and pull tab portions of the label on the battery. Got it down to 9.1g
Prop shaft was factory lubed, but a bit heavily. Cleaned it up and added just a tiny bit of my favorite "slot car" red oil. Looks like transmission fluid, but doesn't smell.
I keep making small CG changes and it keeps getting better. It will fly figure 8's in the length of a 6 place dining room table.
I'm going to need more batteries.
