- mine was 185 lbs as advertised w/o muffler, rad, etc. i'm sure there's a
wide varience between accessory weights but to compare to a cont (not
counting prop, engine mount, gascolator/fuel lines, battery, etc) i'd guess
210 -220 lbs? muffler - 5lbs, rad - 5lbs, coolant - 5lbs, plus 185 = 200.
i have lot's of exact weights for items but never added everything up.

- i've only seen one for sale for about $5K but not sure if it was sold. it
was the vision aircraft company http://www.visionaircraft.com/, maybe you
can find out from them if they sold it.
- just curious - why switch? bad luck with the Stratus?
