Looks great. I too have one of those kits. Can I ask what it weighs with the engine? And did you have to add tail weight to achieve balance? I have an HP 25VT 4 cycle (read heavy!) that I might want to add to my Stagger Bee.

I haven't weighed her.....but it's all engine!...and yes, they will have to add 'tailweight' by moving what ever battery used, I made a battery box, and by using foam, the battery will be shifted to achieve the correct balance~ if they had put a 09 with a small tank...this baby would top out at around 2 lbs...it's a light build!
