First I want to start by saying some stuff was missing. One set of seats and wing root fairings. I made my seats and the wing root fairings will be Carbon Fiber, maybe 10 pounds total. From the beginning I concentrated on building light. No wheel pants. Jabiru 3300 with a custom FWF. Grove gear. Wood propeller.
Second, I had Arnie the A&P at U76 use his certified scales.
Empty weight: 686 pounds
Left wheel: 231 pounds
Right wheel: 219 pounds
Nose wheel: 236 pounds
When Arnie told me the Empty Weight, I said, No Way!!
Once I get done adding the other seat and wing root fairings, I expect to be right at 700 pounds :-)
That's my story. I'll post some pictures tonight.
Live long and prosper!
