No worries ! Mine tipped the scales at 20 lbs, ready to fly, minus fuel and had an old Quadra 35. Great flying airplane, do replace the aluminum pieces on where the struts attach to the fuselage, on the struts and fuselage, use brass instead, I lost my first one on a slow and level flight but I did do a lot of maneuvers with it, it won't fly worth a hoot on one wing, you can't see when the aluminum fatigues. The G38 is perfect for it, the spark plug wire will protrude out of the bottom of the cowl, the Quadra did not. This is probably on of the best kits ever offered of the Bellanca Decathlon, I still have one in the box ready for my third Decathlon. Enjoy !!
