Initial weigh

As part of the final gaggle of tasks .. one is to weigh the aircraft and then start applying the formula that my Dad kindly etched out to review the expected balance point and, therefore, the subsequent ballast required.

Although this is a little premature (not all objects are on the aircrat yet – although its largely very near all up weight) its worth walking through the process.



So it looks like 25kg on the tailwheel and 85kg on each of the mains .. so all up currently is 195kg.
