I had to weigh it on my larger scale, when I weighed it with the ounce setting,
it was at .5 oz, 1/2 ounce. When weighed with gram setting, it was @ 16 grams.
This included the winglets, but not the motor mount, since I have the motor already
attached to it. No biggie, probably not even a 1/2 gram difference.

No it doesn't. Everything must be done yourself.

Thats lame. I liked the fact some of it was already done... Kinda spendy for a kit you have to do most of the work on..

I agree. At least with Hacker kits, they do a little something for you, and they are pricey also. I guess if you want it, that's the price you have to pay.

The new little hacker hotwing mini 500 (About the same size as this one) is the same way. Not only do you have to make your own holes and whatnot you have to cut and install the carbon as well.

I do not like the way these are going now.
