I agree, it really is to heavy. It still flies really well though. The LHS is getting 2 of the recommended rimfires in this week, so i'll probably get one of thoes. They also have a couple of 2S 640 Dualsky packs. I'll give them a try too.

Thats the exact same thing that happened to me. I'm gonna keep playing around with the mixes and see what happenes.
