I'm at 255g sans the lipo. My GA 3s 20c 800mAh lipos weigh 72g. All up weight (AUW) is 327g. Would have been under 320g with stock tail servo. The DS 95i is a bit of a pig but it works very well.

Just finished 250 DFC combo (DS415m/425m) with AR7200BX and CC25 weighs in at 279g without lipo, with the Align 30C lipo this comes in at 351g flying weight, I don't understand how others are lighter when this is all stock stuff ?

My 250SE (DS410/420) with Align FBL head, AR7200BX, CC25, and some nose weight for CofG weighs 261g without lipo (333g flying weight with Align 30C lipo).

Weighing the SE vs DFC without canopy extra weight of the DFC TT/metal gear servos is 18g heavier.

MBX: 20g, AR7200BX: 18.6g, 3GX: 11g. I also did away with the boom supports, mounting clamp and horizontal stabilizer, and shortened the servo and esc leads.

Aaaah, OK I see, I think people should say this stuff when they give the weights, as I wasn't sure if my scales read high (or theres low), I can see removing stuff is going to reduce weight though !

375 grams all in. Bone stock DFC Pro super combo with Gens Ace 850's, CC 10A BEC, Futaba 6203.

Might be a little piggish but it handles the wind nicely and can fly far beyond my capabilities at this point in time anyways.

Purchased a 250se and just gave her her final tweaks tonight after maiden. Flies solid for a little fb heli. Flying weight with batt. and canopy she weighs 336.5 grams or 11.87 oz. Hopefully she'll remain that weight AFTER alot of flights.............the thought of a rebuild after struggling with Taiwanese directions or rather Pictures is making my head hurt, not enough brainpower left. But the nice thing about building is you know exactly what goes where, and now, setup should be a breeze. She is one pretty heli though and solid. But we all know you could fly a titanium overloaded (in parts) heli and when it crashes hard, they all look the same as we run a record sprint to get to them lol! BTW, this little heli has been discontinued, replace by the fbl 250. Had to do a little hunting to find one. Hopefully parts will be around for awhile.
