Here's the tally that I'm aware of:

Me - first to fly in the US (and world )
You - first to fly in Canada
Ken - first to fly in Oz

The last time I weighed mine, I was right at 34oz using 2 sp400's with D gear and a TP2100 3S. Since then, I have changed out the motors with Hacker A20-30Ms and added paint. I need to weigh it again to see what I'm at.

However, using the TP2100 3S with APC 8X6SF props, I get good speed. Enough for scale flying, plus a little extra. My last checked CG was at 72mm, and I'm at 1700' AGL. I'll try to get a new AUW for you tonight.

I would suggest ditching the 3-bladers (I know, they look great sitting static). However, when in the air, you do not notice the blade count. What I did was take a black permanent marker and colored the prop black, then painted on yellow tips. Looked great in the air yesterday, the yellow really stood out.
