So the most repairs are finished and almost all the stuff to complete is there, new pipe retracts parts and most accessories to complete with the final assembling, the only problem is the time for that, was working on the carf B2 , 1.4.6 scale f16 ,voyager and one regular service stuff, but probably this winter that jet would be coming together to fly again

The jet is actually very light probably less than the landing gear, the main and the nose gear are actually very heavy, but the jet is about the same weight as the carf eurofighter except the gear, so maybe the total rtf with modern single turbine will stay under 30-35 lbs depending on the equipment and cockpit details, my twin heavy version is 45 lbs dry with two older super eagles for power and heavy equipment and two uat tanks

Mine is close to 42lbs dry, I wish it was way lighter for the size, but sure does not feel heavy in the flying in the air.
