Equates to about 77g off the scales I measured with.
Am feeling a bit nervous now about tomorrow's maiden, but my instructor mate has confirmed the date and we are off to the sticks for some nice open space.
My first hurdle was fitting the wing in the boot of the Commodore - plane won't go in fully assembled. Will have to take the wing off and place through the centre console of the car....doh!
Anyway, s'pose there is not stopping whatever will happen now! Camera charged and ready. Transmitters and packs charged too - worst case I will have the Wing Wing and the 450 Pro to fly!
Even if you did not have all that lead in the nose it would still fly fine with a 3300. I have 4 pieces of 7gram lead and it flys fine. Just give it full throttle and a firm toss at a slight upward angle and you will be good. If you have a radio with launch mode dial in a little up elevator. I fly 70/30 expo on low rates and 100/30 on high rates. Good luck.
