Well,O.K.then I might will go for it.But not for a 3Kw on this one.
I dont "feel" this plane as a super heavy. Its so lite empty,it makes me feel actually guilty to owerload it.Does this one need 3Kw to go fast vertical?
It may need some weight for energy retention after all,but I think it needs also
to be light enough for shorter landings.
My first Tiger was about 64 oz after bunch of carbon repairs.
And second came to 50oz AWU.
On same motor /prop second had faster climb rate-reason lighter weight
but also better penetration and energy retention,reason-unknown
Buttom line -it flew much better in lighter version
