Right after the final W&B. Sorry about the quality, cell phone photo. The "BB" came in at a nearly whopping 900 lbs!!! Nose is 272. All the checks put the CG near perfect! Empty weight is right at around 280 mm. With pilot she's almost dead center. At gross and everywhere in between she's well in the envelope. Weight included unusable fuel, a big-ass fire extinguisher, some heavy avionics, oil and, of course, a 240 lbs (guesstimate) 115 hp engine!!! Useful load will be about 540 lbs! Due to the weight I'm considering renaming her The "Silver BEAST"! LOL
