frame weight

I have been using eCalc to calculate the best setup for my planned tri, and to get the AUW I add up the weight of the electronics, add about 50g for wires, zip ties etc. but how much should I add for the frame? I am planning to build it almost exactly like the tricopter 2.6HV, and what does that frame weigh?

thanks

I'm starting a modified version of the 2.6HV. If you mean just the carbon fiber plates and the booms, it's next to nothing, maybe 175 grams. I'm not at home at the moment, and can tell you exactly later on this evening.

Ok, here ya go. My front booms are 15", the rear 18", plus the two carbon fiber plates. a 2" front spacer, ten 10mm screws and ten nuts . . .weigh in at 132.3 grams
