I did not have time now to disassemble the foil wing but I did a quick weigh of the 76 wing, small stabilizer and short fuselage and it was about 3.5 pounds. It was not a very accurate scale but should give you an idea of the weight. If you want the weight of just the wing weigh your fuselage and stabilizer and subtract them from my weight.

Moses 590/647/330 set is 2.9 lbs and I doubt Slingshot set can be just 0.6 lbs heavier. The Hoverglide fuselage itself is a brick, not counting much larger and heavier wings

Grigorib thanks for questioning the weight that I came up with. I did mention that the scale was not wildly accurate but I had no idea how much it was out. I weighed it again this morning on three different scales. the original one still came up with the same weight but the other two came up with a weight just a little over seven pounds. I then weighed a 5-pound weight and found that the first scale showed it to me much less and the other two showed it to be 5 lb. So I apologize for the incorrect weight. I have picked up the 633 foil before that my friend has and it weighs far less. so the weight with the stabilizer fuselage and Infinitiy 76 Wing is just a little over seven pounds. Again I apologize for the error, the scale was much less accurate than I thought.

gl,
I think that I would like to have you send me that scale. When checking my own weight, I think that I'll like it much better. :lol: :lol:

Sorry sendit, I have already thrown it out. Otherwise I would have shipped it to you so you could use one kite size smaller.
