Greetings,

made the first fuselage yesterday.

Weight ist 235gramm.

Mid next week I make a mast.

What I need is weight of different parts, just to see where I am at at the present.

Please let me know what your gear is on weight. No matter if it is alu or carbon, fuselage, wings, mast's or stabilizers. That would melp me a lot.

tks

Kosta
