Scorpio FW-190 weight?


Finished the airplane, I'm curious to hear of what others' airplanes wound up weighing. My scale 'retired', so the only weight measuring I can do for the moment is on a postal scale, and the finished airframe + servos + motor/gearbox weighs 15.5 ounces. No landing gear, 'long-can' motor on the kit gearbox. OEM finish was washed off and the airframe resprayed with Testor's enamel. My guess is for a flying weight of 22 ounces more-or-less.

PeterH,

I've kind of been following a thread on this plane and from glancing back at it, I see anywhere from 20-30oz. flying weight. Quite a variable.
(I've got one, just haven't gotten to it yet)

I did a little kit bashing with mine and it is 22 oz with a 2s-2200 lipo and flies great at that weight.
