if it really happens still would be very convenient to have that data available somewhere. for instance you may add to your blog so the data will be available whenever.

I think this is the type of thread that should be made into a sticky so that it stays on top.
I wish I knew the procedure for asking to make it a sticky.

It might be good to note that there is often quite a variation in foam weight for various reasons.
For EPP, which is often cut to the proper thickness, 3 sources of variation are:
A. variations in how thick the actual cut is
B. Variation in foam density (there is 1.3, 1.9, etc.), I forget the units
C. whether the sheet is hot wire cut (forms a dense but strong skin on the foam surface) or not

Excellent idea !

took me some days to notice this thread

Some input from me as well

Zippy Lipo batteries, with welded PZ type connectors
50mAh 20C, 2,05gr
70mAh 20C, 2,30gr
100mAh 20C, 3,17gr

Hyperion G3 Lipo batteries, with factory connectors
70mAh 25C, 2,51gr
130mAh 25C, 3,92gr
160mAh 25C, 4,76gr

There must be an error in the batteries list, the Hyperion 240 is listed twice, the first value at 3,22gr is wrong, or the battery type...

e-Flight battery 250mAh 20C (for Parkzone Mosquito) 8,56gr

Brushless ESC YGE 4S 4A, 0,6gr without wires, 1,1 with motor wires+connector

Brushless motors
Microinvent Classic 22, 2,9gr without wires, 3,2 with wires+connector

Gasparin G15 4W, 4,6gr including mount+wires+connector
Gasparin G15 5W, 5,8gr including mount+wires+connector
Gasparin G10 Micro 30, 2,4gr including mount

A final suggestion, to somehow sort individual entities within a table, for example batteries by capacity or maker...

George
