This Windburner's AUW is 55oz. / 1,560 grams with the CG at 34mm.
I hope to do a frontside maiden soon but it's not the windy season here, it might have to wait until Soar Utah for the maiden flight. That's ok, there are a couple of nice DS ridges there

All mine go off the edge of a cliff. Gives you more time to get things sorted before there is any ground to run into.
