Default RE: Extreme Flight 87" Yak 54 - Build & Fly

Mine was 15lbs, 9-10oz. before I removed the hyde pipe ant went back to the stock muffler, which was 8 or so ounces heavier, so I am hovering around 15 pounds, even. Even at this altitude, this thing flies like a foamy!
Yours isn't the first I've heard of to come in at 15lbs even. I don't understand this since we are pretty much all using the same components (except mufflers). Actually, I've even got a lightweight fiberglass spinner and didn't use an ignition switch... so that should put me a good 3-4 oz lighter. With a stock DA muffler (lightest option available), I'd still be at 15.25 pounds, I don't know any way that I could lose another 4 oz?
