My wife got me a digital postal scale today. My moth is 6.5 oz w/ no battery!

I can't believe it is that light.

I used GWS pico servos, and ics-50 bec, 4p receiver.

My mods include.

830 mAh li-ions (weight 2 oz).
Carbon fiber on leading edge of lower wing, held
on my monocote.
Monocote wing tips for rough landings (ok normal ones).
Heavier and longer landing gear (I can use 11 inch props).
Cross bar on landing gear to help spread on landing.
Carbon fiber tape in slots where landing gear goes.
Foam wheels.
Flying wires.
Velcro bat hold downs.
Deans plug battery connectors.
Brass sleeve for motor mount.
Cross bars for servo install.

Have you posted pictures of your TM? I'd like to see it. I'm wanting to get a moth, but the wind has been so harsh lately I've decided to get a House Fly first.
