Default 35% Carden Weight

I was wondering what other peoples 35% Cardens are weighing in at, mine is 27 pounds wet and someone told me it was heavy. Just wondering what everyone elses weigh. Mine is the Edge not sure if there is much of a difference between extra and edge. Thanks for the info in advance.

Mine weighs 28 and it will do more than I have the abillity to do.
My guess is that one could weigh around 32 and still fly good.

My 35% Extra is still in the bones. With a DA100 and cans, I'm on track to hit 29lbs RTF. If I dropped the cans and switched the gear and wing tube for carbon pieces, I could hit 27lbs.
27lbs wet sounds excellent to me.

26-30 is what I deem an acceptable range on that plane. Obviously the lighter the better, but unless you do every lightening trick in the book you will be around 27-29 which is where you are at.

Your plane will fly very well at that weight. 27 is quite good.

My edge was 27.5 pounds and it flew very light. Remember carden's 35% airplanes are bigger than your average 35%.
