I think an earlier post said it's about 12 oz., and similar span to the Libelle? So I think that puts it in light le Fish territory. The name fits

Did you scroll down the page? See "Items Required for Completion" and "Strongly Recommended."

micro servo can mean several things in modern times. I'm sure we will see whenever they add the flight pack they mention.

FWIW, the picture on the Ahi page appears to show the same servo that's recommended for the Weasel Trek (12.4g metal gear servo), at least for the elevator and rudder.

Too heavy imho. Weasel yes needs such strong MG servos.. But here i do belive we need to find ~8-10gr metal gear with good centering. Any sugestions here, or simply HXT900 ? )
upd: Found in closets HiTech HS-65MG four pcs) - gonna use them

Anyone can figure out how connects wing servo? I see wings are removable
