The total weight (without the battery) is 1860 gr. The battery I use is 2 of 3S 2500 mAh having a weight of 430 gr, therefore the total weight is 2285 gr.
Due to the short nose of the model it is necessary to add weight in the nose. I added 150 gr (it is included in the 1860 gr).
In addition, I use a receiver battery of 1100 mAh in 120 gr' located on the inner side of the firewall.

Hi Gang -- This is basically a bump to keep Franny's Stearman build log fresh, 'cause I'm starting the same build, and I want to keep it alive and current. Franny graciously exchanged some email thoughts back several months ago, and I'm just now getting one of those " 'round to it's" . My ambition is to build the 48" aerodromeRC short kit pretty much as designed, but go to school on it and see what mods I might want to make for a 60"-er. I'm grievously pained with the 6 to 9 oz dead weight that Franny had to stick in the nose to get the CG right. I'm determined to either lighten up something behind the CG enough to eliminate the dead weight in the nose, or put in an oversized motor or battery or something to get some value added from the weight. Thinking about lots of things to lighten it up behind the CG, but am a rookie builder, so I'm reluctant to drift too far away from the design/build instructions. Anyway, here's a bump for Franny's Stearman. Franny, if you're out there, how 'bout some flying video? BTW -- really appreciate all the great photos during the build. Regards..... Bob R.
