Thanks Jack!! Best purchase I've made in a long time

It sure felt heavy until I put it on the scale! Just a hair lighter than a DA200 and Mintor220 and a fair bit lighter than the DLE222 (V2) and 3W220CS

Seems only the DA200L is lighter. Pretty stoked about this now

Thanks again

I'm glad, can't wait to see if the RE3's help over the MVVS numbers quoted that have been confirmed on video.. It's certain 4 pipes will make it killer!

Hanes - MVVS ran out of Aluminum after they finished their run of MVVS116 Bricks so had to resort to plastic nipples!! In their defence, it saved 0.05oz, LOL

This statement in itself, leads me to ask. What is weight, actual, or perceived. Maybe some of the models perceived to be heavy should be actually weighed. Or, better yet flown to form an opinion.
Now this is not meant to be a harsh statement, more of an observation.
Following my common outlook that each of us has a personal hobby. I like some of my models for the way they do fly. Example was the 38lb 38% Extra with the Evolution 116. It was a joy to fly, a real go-to set-up.

O.K. now I roast.
