My charging station for F5J contests.
Apache 1800 Pelican style case, power hub which feeds the Lipo charger and a 5v source for Tx charging, wooden cigar box lid for the shelf, and underneath is a 5S 5,000 mAh Lipo and miscellaneous cables. Shelf is simply a snug fit atop dowels as standoffs hot glued into the case. Goal was to have a small self-contained portable charging station out in the field.

Prestige 2PK Windy, Tenshock 1515-15T w/ Reisenauer 5:1 micro gearbox, Castle Phoenix Edge Lite 50 w/ BEC set to 7.4v, Vladimir 32/6 spinner, GM 15x8, Tattu 3S 850 mAh 75C, KST X10 Mini w/ IDS for flaps, MKS HV6110 w/ IDS on ailerons, MKS HV6110 for elevator & rudder, FrSky G-RX8 rx, Altis 4+.

AUW: 1495 g/53 oz
CG: 111 mm
Nose-stock: 390 mm length
Nose trimmed for CG 111 mm: 348 mm length

Using a pull tab (Kapton tape) on the canopy since it's so tight; folds down flat due to the slight curve of the canopy.
Added the lightest ballast bar (236 g/8.4 oz); resulted in AUW 1735 g (61 oz) and CG 110 mm.

Added a new bird to the quiver for the 2018 season, an Ultima Strong with an extra set of standard wingtips. Nice having carbon pushrods instead of the cable system.

Some weights, strong layup
Fuse: 148 g
Center panel: 432 g
Right tip - strong: 178 g
Right tip - standard: 152 g
Left tip - strong: 182 g
Left tip - standard: 154 g
Stab: 36 g
Rudder: 30 g

Assembled frame weight w/ strong tips: 1028 g (36.3 oz)
Assembled frame weight w/ standards tips: 976 g (34.4 oz)

My initial thought is to fly with the lighter standard wingtips, and when the wind picks up use the strong tips, along with ballast.

Thanks Ali @FlightComp!
