Default Funtana 90 setup and AUW

I know, I know, all this is probably in one of those huge F90 threads but, who has the time?
125 pages and over 3000 posts is just too much!

Please post your F-90 set up and All up weight.

Mine
Engine : YS 120NC with DynaThrust 16X6 prop
Servos : Hi Tech 5645mg, 5ea ,Standard futaba on throttle
Battery: 6 volt 1700 MAH nicad
Sullivan tailwheel
Dave Brown light weight main wheels (saves 2 oz)
All I need to do is move the battery around inside the fuse to balance.
All up weight is 9lbs11oz. Is this where most guys are with a similar setup?
I have yet to fly, perhaps next weekend if the weather clears up around here.
Thanks for the replies.

Mine is at 9 pounds 7 oz. dry

Engine: Evolution 100 NX two stroke glow
Servos: Tower Hobbies System 2000 High Torque TS64 on aileron and elevator
HiTech 945 on rudder
Futaba 3004 on throttle
Battery: 6 volt 1100 mAh (more mAh's means more weight!)

Mine is set up for 3D using a Futaba 6EXAP 9 (new version) radio. Low rate is about 40% less than high rate with about 60% expo on high...none on low.
Don't know of anyone who can get near recommended 8.1 to 8.5 # weight unless they're using the low end engines - .61 - .65 and then it's no good for 3D. Powerful but light is the key...

p.s. those T.H. TS64 servos are lightning fast on a 6 volt battery! And strong. Under-rated treasure at a good price.

Was 7lbs 14.5oz

Saito 100
APC 16x4W
Tru Turn Spinner
Kokam 1250 Lipo
Hitec 475s Karbonites
Hitec 81 on throttle
Hitec Electron 6 Rx
Graphtech Carbon gear
Dubro Superlite Wheels
Titanium Axles

In my opinion and everyone who has seen and flown my plane, this is an awesome set up. Keep it lite. Pull out on hovers is excellent, not a hint of wing rock in a harrier and floats all day. I do use Coolpower 30% and I fly @ 800' . I am warning people who are using nylon and plastic gear servos. I stripped a Karbonite servo and put it in real hard. Everything was junk, Plane, engine, 3 servos, lipo, regulator, and the Rx. I couldn't of flown the plane any slower. I had about 50+ flights on the plane and gear. Later

the dak:
ur plane was really light, no wonder u had exellent pull out..

but sorry it crashed, thats why i use a little heavier and stronget stuff, preferably stock, so when it crashes, its cheaper.. but with all stock stuff, no way its gonna weight that little as ur funtana!!!

Which servo stripped? I assume it was an aileron.

I just ordered some 635's to replace the 475's on my ailerons but I plan on keeping the 5475's on the elevator, unless you stripped the elevator []

Mine is definatley the heaviest at 11#'s but thats with an os1.60 and really heavy landing gear I just moved to colorado and even at this weight at 6000ft it still flys super light.
