I have it 4-1/2" back from the nose or 25%. Seems to track nicely at that location.

I try and weigh it later today and let you know.

Will Greg offer a kit? Obviously it's an easy scratch build, but I have no decent local foam and would rather buy pre-cut kits than pay big shipping to get appropriate sheets of foam.

Even a bare foam kit would be fine. I can always scrounge up the hardware.

It's always a possibility and you are correct in that there really isn't much to it. I'll chat with Greg after Christmas and get his thoughts. He's got a lot on his plate with the 44" and 32" Slick coming out and starting the process of revising some of the existing kits but a Disco wouldn't take much to get going.

See if you can talking him into making the plywood horns a little bigger. I didn't make much progress. Problem is the edge distance at the top hole is so meager that it can't be easily drilled to fit EZ connector studs which are .060". I had to repair or replace probably half of all his horns by now. Not everyone needs the extra edge distance, but a tiny bit more wood up there would have no negatives. Probably hundredth of a gram.

I’ll see what Greg can do with the control horns.

The weight without a battery is 132 grams/4.65 ounces. I am using a Tattu 2s/300 45c pack at 18 grams so a flying weight of 150 grams/5.28 ounces.

Thanks. Need to compare with the 17 incher I'm building using 6.5mm EPP. My 16 was 3.5 oz RTF with a loading of 2.5 OPSF and was amazing.

It's a real chore to build light and get it right!!
