Porky is no longer. Suitcase # 1 gained lots of weight when painted. 13.2 oz. But thats with a 68 gram battery. I hope an 8 X 3.8 or an 8 X 4 will pull it with the Blu-Wonder. I have two 9 X 4.7
SF APC I might carry with me. Next one will be light. Unless this one flys in the wing good. And if underpowered i'll put an EMax CF 2822 830 kv 39 gram motor on it. 13.2 oz. WOW ! I didn't think paint would add that much. But I slopped it on.
Don't sweat the weight. Your Porta-Baby will lift it easily with a Blue Wonder pulling it. Man, that little motor can produce 14 1/2 oz thrust with a 9047, it should go straight up. Airplane Ed's BB is tubby too and he flies his on a J250 (C) drive with a 9070. It easily loops from level flight. Yours will too and it handle a bit more wing too. Have faith!
