Esky Lama V3/V4 component weight data

Even though weight is very important, not all manufacturers specify weight for their parts. So, as an aid for selecting replacement or upgrade parts, I thought it might be a good idea to collect weights for the various parts for the Esky Lama V3/V4 helis. Weight is of course not the only consideration, but is always important.

If anybody would like to contribute to this overview, all contributions would be most welcome; stock parts, upgrade parts, add-ons or whatever. I will try to keep this post reasonably updated.

For starters, this is what I have put on the scale so far:

For Lama V3/V4:
Flybar: 		8.6 grams	Stock, with linkage. 
Inner shaft: 		3.8 grams   	Stock, with upper hub
Lower hub:		0.9 grams 	Stock, with 2 links (between swashplate and bladegrips)
Blade grips: 		2.5 grams	Stock, complete for one rotor (2blades), ie. 2 halves, 2 connecting screws and 2 "blade screws".
Swashplate: 		2.9 grams	Stock
Rotorblade:		3.1 grams	Stock (1 blade)
Rotorblade:		3.2 grams	Airy Harden Blade II (1 blade)
Rotorblade:		4.8 grams	Xtreme (white) (1 blade)
Battery:		47 grams	Stock, 7.4V/800mAh/10C
Battery:		45 grams	Mystery, 7.4v/900mAh/15C
For Lama V3:
Skids w/batt. holder: 	8.6 grams	Stock, with 4 mounting screws
For Lama V4:
Skids: 			4.3 grams	Stock, 2pcs.
Canopy, painted:	~8 grams	Xtreme
Fuselage, front:	~8 grams	Stock
Fuselage, rear:		~12 grams	Stock
All standard disclaimers apply: there will probably be slight variations between individual parts, not all scales are equally accurate, and finally: to err is human. In other words, there will be errors and inaccuracies.

I'll add some weights for my brushless conversion and some other blades and landing gear I have. Tomorrow will be busy with indoor flying of airplanes, so it may take me a day or two.
