    personally I love them big, airplane that is LOL but I believe the weight you are targeting , might not be realistic, more like 100 lbs to 120 lbs, which would still make it a real floater .

    Question please do not know for sure but we have weight limit of 82 lbs on our planes in Canada. If you go above that you are no longer insured and you need permission by Maac to fly at a sanctioned field. How are the rules in the USA.

    Over 55 pounds requires inspection and permitting when flown at an AMA field.

    Just weighted it. fuselage,wings cowl,wheels without engine,covering,radio and scale accessories. 35lbs I am still hoping for the 55 to 65 range. Roger you may be right it can easy make the 100 pound mark. Time will tell. I am looking a LED light for the wings and a strobe for the rear.
