Default Weight and balance numbers

I was looking for a weight and balance data bank, but since Sharpie's website is gone so is the info. (well i couldn't find it anyway) So, maybe we could have a sticky for folks to post their weight and balance data...make sure you give some background for comparison

I'll start:

IO-360, WW200RV C/S prop, prop spacer, extended James cowl, Tip-up, oversized 380-150/5 tires. Simple glass panel, CAD sportsman seats and carpet, painted and full fairings.

right main 511#
left main 514#
tail 70#
total 1095# c.g=80.2

Retired Dam guy. Life is good.

Default RV-7A

Here is mine.

Slider closed, catto 3 blade with saber spacer, carb 0360, paint and pants, classic aero seats and carpet.( no side panels yet ) with engine oil, no fuel.


I do have a problem. When I get on the step to get in , the tail goes down. Lucky someone was at the prop and got a hold of it for me. I understand that when I put some fuel in, that it will help. Im going to have to look at how to fix this.
