To add to the excellent info posted above, regarding the weight of the heli, this quite possibly originates from Walkera's site where both the brushed and double brushless 4G3s are listed as 68.4g - it would seem they didn't update the info on their site when they brought out the brushless models. My double brushless plastic 4G3 with the 2.9g tail motor weighs around 75g.

Thumbs up This might work with 4G3 too!

DIY Radical new blades for the 4G6, could be applicable to the 4G3 too, just watch the tail rotor! If there's potential contact, cut some of the tip off.

You can use this mod to repair your broken blades, not only that, it offers significant efficiency and performance boost if done correctly. It offers better crash survivability of the rotorhead components. Finally, it's also crash resilient and offers excellent blade protection in impact. If the tip is badly deformed, it can be easily R&R'ed at virtually no cost!
