    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.

    Side views of the project. You will have to excuse the cluttered shop. working multi-able projects at once. starting to use the X10S radio.

    If the wheels on the bench are for that plane you can lose a good chunk of weight by going with some foam one's.

    These are the Dubro 8" threaded lightweight wheels. I tried the 7" sullivan Large skylite wheels that I had on my scaled up Weeks Solution X they look a little small on this one. Wing rib for the next fall project. hopefully after the design stage. I am getting ready to start installing radio gear and wiring in the wings.
