Update, Letter from Joe:
“William, Thank you for your post! It probably doesn’t matter much for the post but I want to clarify a few things. The empty weight is actually 847 lbs and that includes a radio, transponder and ADS-B system and associated components. It’s also an Edition 2 kit with many Edition 3 upgrades which includes a lot of doublers It also has the dual stick option and the front bracket for future float attachment. After doing my weight and balance on digital racing scales it seems absurd to do these measurements on a bathroom scale. The best part is that I ended up back calculating the actual arm locations for fuel, pilot seat, passenger seat, and baggage area for much more accurate CG numbers by adding the weight and subtracting the difference from the empty moment calculations.
I’m extremely happy with how it came out, and it would never have happened without you, Grace, Dan, or Rachel for your time, patience, and friendship. I can’t wait to get it in the air. Joe”

Congrats to Joe on a very nice 750STOL. 850 lbs helps establish a benchmark for the 750/Corvair configuration. Always good to see real world examples built by dedicated folks.
