Thanks for starting the thread,

Might I suggest you change the thread title to reflect the fact that it's about micro gear? Or did you want to make it a thread about the weights of absolutely everything R/C related?

I have some new micro gear on order. I'll get my scales out and contribute some figures when it arrives.

Good call.

i think you should list the deltang receivers up there because they are spektrum compatible.
and also, is the brushed motor weights including any gear drives they may come in? or maybe list weight of the gear drives empty?
at least the very common ones like the mustang, sukhoi, and piper cub.

What servos are these? :

Super Sub Micro LZ 0.48
Sub Micro LZ 0.675
I'll try to post some weights tomorrow. I've been distracted by trying out some new bits, and it's bed time, really. I think I can only give 0.1g accuracy though.

I have eight of these, so I'll weigh them all together and divide by 8 :

2.4ghz SuperMicro Systems - Single Linear Servo

Size: 18.1mm x 15.2mm x 7.8mm
Servo throw: 8mm
Weight: 1.1g (wires not included)
- I've never found servos very useful without the wires, so I'll leave mine on They have JST-SH plugs to work with the AR6400 or DT Rx33. I've tried a few of them with my new Rx33 and they work fine.

Incidentally, I've got a bit of an issue with using them with the Rx42, with a JST-SH socket attached to pad C, but I'm hoping there's a solution. I'll look into it more tomorrow - I'm getting little jerky movements about two and a half times a second with the Rx42, but not the Rx33.

I'm still waiting for my 1.7g and 2.2g servos from HobbyKing - they've been grabbed by customs, so there'll be more delay, and an unreasonable bill. I bought six of each so I'll weigh them together for better accuracy.

I have some carbon tissue which is allegedly 10g per square meter - the paper I'm used to using in my printer is 80g per square meter, but is a lot thicker, and doesn't come apart so easily when you pull on it.

I've used a bit of the carbon tissue as a brace on a cracked part of my 4-Site's lower wing, that was acting like a hinge. I used superhatic glue in the crack and just pressed a small piece of the tissue onto the top of the wing, where it had got tacky, I'm quite pleased with the result. I don't know what else I'll use it for though. I'd be interested to know what applications have been found for it.

I'll see if I can weigh the roll, and measure it to see if the 10g/m2 is about right. The bit I've used won't make any difference to the weight.

You need to be careful weighing motors, as the magnets can mess with the scale.

I weigh them with a non magnetic spacer between the motor and the scale.

Thanks for the tip I will bear it in mind and try again with a metal pan on the scales.
