The model came out at 10.4 grams without rubber; more than I had hoped. It did need 0.7G added to the tail. I used a Gizmo Geezer nose button; they are a little heavy (and indispensible!) While I would have preferred less, I am satisfied. The prop is a 6?x9P stacked prop, cut down to 5.5?. This is a high pitch for a small prop and requires a loop of 3/32? rubber to drive it. I think a 5? lower pitch prop would have let me fly it on a loop 1/16? – well, if I had been able to keep the weight down to 6 or 7 grams.
