N614EF weight & balance

She's a good-sized girl!

I rented some aircraft scales today and weighed the new plane. The total came in a little higher than I thought it would, until I remembered I have manual trim which requires a heavy cable, I've done a lot of fiberglass work, and I've got a full interior.

In the end, it came in 3 pounds lighter than the sample RV-7A in Van's Aircraft's weight & balance guidelines.
