Total build with UHU POR including film attachment.
The lack of 3M77 and highlighter colored airframe made for a significant weight savings.Also much of the UHU POR will evporate.
Also by replacing the dual ailirons with one 1.7 gram HK servo a few grains were saved.
Down side, the highlighter seems UV sensitive. I will use permanant markers next time.
The battery weight may be less because its a Hobby King Nano.It seems smaller than the equivalent Hyperion.
