Has anyone weighed their counterweignts after balancing?  It would seem that this should be a known weight that would not vary builder to builder if the flaparon was built per plan.  There may be a difference on the inboard and outboard flaparons.  Your input appreciated.

Yes. Due to the single wing strut and higher speeds of the Cruzer

If you fly before final paint, you should rebalance after painting. Same on elevator counter weight.

I am building a Cruzer as well. About ready to mont wings
