I weighed mine on a mechanical scale and that gave me around 11.8 ounce. With a TP850 mah (more like 1100). That pack weights almost 3 ounce vs. the common 850 which weighs more around 2.5 ounce. So anyway 11.8 or around 340.

I see the POLL has ended. Do you all really want this to stay a sticky post?

Now its open again. IMHO this is an informative thread, because the weight of a heli this size can make or break the heli.

Mine flies wonderfully at 348g. But I'd still like to know how one of you got to 290g.
I'm running the scorpion 3600 motor and just a few metal replacements like main blocks, the tail block, tail servo mounts, w/ Supercombo electronics.
I don't see 60g difference there.
I do use the cheap chinese 3s800 packs = 76g.
