    Jon,

    Depending on how the aircraft is equipped and painted, they usually end up weighing around 964lbs to 1050lbs.

    Laid up recovering from a knee replacement - so will flying vicariously via the internet for a couple of months, DAME (Designated Aviation Medical Examiner - Aussie AME's) booked for 9:00am 3rd Oct.

    Anyway to the point. Anyone have anymore info on the FX3 gross weight increase? CC didn't say much at Osh.

    Do you pickup any useful load, or is it eaten up by the CSU,FI and wing and fuse upgrades?

    All the best.

    Mine weighs 1010lb with 31's and every freaking option in the book but I have the small tanks so need to add the difference back for that if you want the large/standard FX tanks.
