I owned and flew one a while ago. The weight looks to be right at 24 to 25 pounds. The CG as I recall was 8.25 inches back from the leading edge at the root of the wing. Also your fuel Tank set up. You have to be sure that the saddle tanks drain first then the tank between the intake. I balanced mine with the tank between the intakes about half full and the uat full.
First video is maiden with a Kingtech K140. I later stripped the jet out and repainted it. Added a smoke system in a center line drop tank.
Hope this helps.

Joe
