SBach 342 - weight and balance

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
With the mods complete I got my SBach on the scales. Here are the results:

Port main: 3.705 kg (8.151 lbs)
Starboard main: 3.607 kg (7.935 lbs)
Tail: 1.039 kg (2.286 lbs)
Total: 8.351 kg (18.372 lbs)

Looks like I'll have to move some weight from port to starboard.

I've come across a balancing method using one or more scales that looks good to me: I'm using a small digital scale at the moment and plan to pick up two more today so that all three wheels can be weighed simultaneously.
