Blitzu - Im not sure. I guess around 100g but I'll weigh it and let you know.
Voodoo or anyone else with a folder - how do you prevent the folder from scraping the runway when you land ?

Well.... my landings are on grass or the likes, so the prop, even if it contacts the ground, is undamaged. I can't comment about tarmac or concrete, I expect that would be pretty unforgiving!

Generally if you land on your folded folder,the motor will rotate slightly and both folders end up off the ground...You landing on ashphalt/concrete.....ooool yuk,thats like landing on 220 grit sandpaper...poor plane

Oh....and before i do get rid of the Swist.....I need to post my Re-Run i hope......It has unofficially gone 247mph........and YES,that was with the wicked DIVE everybody has been trying to talk me into....and on a side note,i did not enjoy it...i for one think a planes power and speed should be based on what it can do flat and level,just like the way we measure the speed of everything thing else out there besides bodies falling from a bridge or building .

Blitzu, could you please take a photo of the bottom of the wing and tailplane so we can see those colours as well. Starting to feel the itchy purchase finger syndrome.....

Thanks.
