Default 14 final weight

My final weight is 1295 all in - interior, paint etc. Nothing left to add. Started at 1209 with a minimal interior and without paint.

Left 608, right 615, tailwheel 72 with CG 80.61

I donít have a use case that goes over the weight or outside the CG envelope.

This is a nice, usable airplane.

You might want to look at various loading situations (two people/ 100 lbs baggage etc). That light prop gives you a pretty far aft c.g., might want to see how usable that will be.

Thanks Rob. It appears that with two fat guys like myself and low fuel we haven't any baggage capacity. Working on a solution this weekend.

Solved the problem with a balancer and weight bolted to the sump. We get basically 50-80 lbs baggage depending on the weight of pilot/co-pilot.
