Fosa 1.86 KG Ballas

I commissioned some molds for the wing and fuse ballast to cast lead slugs (about 25% heavier than the brass) and I also had some brass pieces machined to a taper that fits perfectly in the wing joiner. This cost a lot less than Tungsten!

Fuse slugs = 85g ea
Wing slugs = 225g ea
Joiner inserts = 140g ea

With full lead and only two brass pieces in the rear joiner (one piece in each side of the back compartments) it brings the AUW to almost 4 KG (3.93).

I have a limited number of sets (5) and am going to sell some of them to raise funds to replace a broken wing panel on my Fosa :'(

$125 each including shipping (con US). Send me an e-mail directly to stevecondon at if you are interested. Prefer PayPal but will accept other forms of payment too.
