Chris' post made me think...

If there's any connector parts that you guys need weighed, let me know.

For instance, I can easily get weights of the red jst connectors without any wires, including 2 pins.

If I have it in stock I'll be glad to weigh it. (and if it's micro RC plane related, you know I've got it)

I have a minium brick that weighs 3.60g with 1" motor wires.

This seems heavy, but that is what the scale says.

The R610 RX listed seems a little light.

I have 2 of them. The old one (large Cap) weights 3.99g with a brand new R610 (small Cap) weighs 3.67g.

Both are no case with satelite hook up.

Neither are anywhere near 2.5g. The connectors would need to be modified to get to 2.5g.

yeah, the r610 data is wrong. i got one down to 2.5 grams by removing (not cutting) all the pins and clipping off the sat connector and replacing the cap with a ceramic one.

on way its 2.5 grams stock. the r415 is, tho.

Brushless category


hexTronik 2 gram Brushless Outrunner 7700kv 2.1 grams

On my scale. Seems to vary per batch/ person. Probably due to wire length or other densities (magnets, bell etc.). Mostly around this weight.

Propellors
MicroInvent MCF 5030S 0.5 grams

Just as specified by the manufacturer. This prop is intended to be screwed on the motor/ gearbox shaft with the use of washers and a screw.
I bought a plastic adapter with is a push-on (1mm shaft) and uses two rubber bands. The weight stated above is CF prop only.

The AR6400T weighs 4.70g

6400l


ungn is talking about 6400T.
what he says makes sense:

i just checked 6400L, which has a little bit longer servos: 4.08 edit:>>>corrected weight<<<

and just in case, i checked weights of the original 6400: 3.90

by the way, the brick on the champ weighs the same: 3.90-although it is de-tuned to develop less power, as confirmed by horizon.
i did bench tests on both (detailed figures somewhere in my blog).
