So far the weight is 1.78kg.
That's the plane with Riteweve done (on TE and LE and underside)
2x 3200 3s lipos
all of the laminate that Chris supplied, the balsa controls and the bats.
So the only weight to add is a bit of paint, bit more 3m90.
So it looks like she'll come at 1.8kg maybe just under.
Trappy is going for 1.9Kg with a 4s setup. And a 60" wing mine's 54". So I'm pretty happy with how it's turned out. There were places I could have made it lighter but hey this is my first wing build.
Trappy - when you weighed her up did you include the GoPro?
Where did you put the fiber glass rod spars?
Those spars were to be the internal mains, the rods were to go over and under each other top and bottom of the wing??
All the spars in the kits are glass BTW,even the dark ones.
