Look on the internet for a program called "Convert" - do a google search with the keywords "convert Measurements program" and you should find it

Its a great tool that among other things will do this conversion

You need more information. You said dm2. Decimeters squared, right? That's area. You need the weight too to convert to oz/ft2.

Presumably g/dm2.

So 27 g/dm2 = 8.848 oz/ft2 (approximately)

It's a 3 to 1 ratio approx. So your 27g/sq.dm is 9 oz./sq.ft

Cheers,

Martin (who prefers to do it in his head)

The E-66,7 g/dm2 means 66.7 g/dm2 for the electric version which is about 21.9 oz/ft2.

A very nice kit that you can fly electric with a 400/480 geared. I haven't done all the weights yet, but I doubt that the wing loading is as high as 21 oz. I suspect its closer to 16-18. It is not a slow flyer, but you probably could fly it around a baseball field.

A great little program that I found, will convert just about anything to anything.

To convert gm/dm^2 to oz/ft^2, for example you would type :

j <enter>
27 gm/dm^2 <enter>
oz/ft^2 <enter>
