This is the first I've heard of the 1/2 size version but I built a full size Mark 2 from plans a while back. The fuse and tail built nice and light but the wing with air retracts came out heavier than I expected. Twin tanks, twin aileron/throttle servos, etc started to add up quickly. Is yours electric I assume?

And don't forget the twin engines... that'll get that wing heavy in a jiffy!

My 60 size duallist is electric and my new little half size will be electric as well re-tracks on my 60 size and yes she came out a bit heavier but was also just my second ever kit build. . I have another one in a box I’ll build later with a bit more power.
