Hi from Bob Markle aka RCbobcat55 My bug weighs 143 gms rtf with a 4 cell 300 nimh pack, two BATS 4,3 gm sub micro servos, and Spektrum AR6110e rcvr and it flies just fine. I was thinking of building another fuselage and tail set with contest balsa and using a HK 415 nano 4ch rcvr, two HK nano servos, and a shred rc 1 cell lipo  with built-in charger and regulator. I may have to make the nose a little longer to avoid using lead to balance it. That's my 2 cents worth..

My old one is 120 grams and the new one 115 grams. I like flying the old one better.

I Finished the Lightninbug. The AUW is 138g w/o battery and with three 240mAh LiPos wired in parallel and stuffed in the nose it balances perfectly according to the CG on the plans but comes in at a portly AUW of 155g.

I'm curious to know how my LB's AUW compares to that of the rest of you here on the group.

I haven't maidened or even done any glide testing as of today.
