Electric Focus 2
When Piedmont dropped their prices on the ARC Focus 2 I jumped at the chance to buy one... then after some thought, I called back and ordered another a few days later! The plan was to electrify the one, and have the other just as a back up left un built (not sure how long that will last). Anyway, I was wondering with your experience with the plane if you had any ideas to lighten the airframe? I had planned on using a carbon wing tube, but I'm having difficulty finding a 7/8" tube to use. Thought about changing the landing gear, and still might, but weight savings might cause a ground clearance issue as I'm planning for a 22" prop. Electrics need less bulk with the lack of vibration, so if need be I could remove quite a bit of wood and not hinder the integrity.
With your glow set ups, what weights did you come in at?
Thanks in advance for your time.
