Not too shabby. Wet weight is coming in at 346 lbs. Dry weight is at 196lbs. The belite sneaks under legal weight with the thor 250 with minimal margin, and seeing mine at 196 leads me to think that I am right on track.How is the weight looking?
Rear struts are required! On any typical two spar fabric covered wing such as this.I think that the rear struts on the Belite are only there to limit top speed. It might be an idea to ask James Wiebe if they can be left off. You could limit top speed with a rev limit, instead.
I know I read somewhere about a 103 gaining a pair of structurally unnecessary struts purely to limit speed. I suspect it was the Belite, but not sure. As I suggested, the designer should be consulted before deleting struts!Rear struts are required! On any typical two spar fabric covered wing such as this.
