Subject: Re: Bug wing weight
Can I ask again for some of you who have built the extended wing (~34") wingspan bug to weigh the wing. It might be helpful to us all to have a benchmark weight for the wing at least. On Tuesday I got a 4:55 minute flight with the heavy receiver (4.1 ounce flying weight). Wednesday I got a 4:47 minute flight with a GWS receiver (3.8 ounces flying weight) although wednesday's flight was much higher. It amazes me how well this glider flies.
