My Aspire weighs 47.9 ounces how much does yours weigh?

I am just interested. If you are running a 3.8 to 1 Gear box please tell me how much your whole set up weighs and how many cells and what capacity and if using BEC (without radio battery) or without BEC (extra radio battery). Thanks

Aspire

Mine weighs 43 ozs. Trinity Chameleon 2 Pro car motor, 3.8 to 1 gear drive, 15X9.5 Aero-Naut carbon folding prop. It uses a Aveox A-55 speed control (55 Amp), 7 CP1300 Sanyo cells, FMA Extrem Rx, HS81 servos. The motor pulls about 38 Amps. Gets to about 500 feet in 45 seconds. 3 climbs per charge. Try to keep the weight down. Be careful the wing will flutter easily. Good Luck, Rich
