FT Bloody Wonder Weight Question

#1
Hi everyone, I am going to scratch build a Bloody Wonder out of Dollar Tree Foamboard, and I am wondering if covering the entire plane in packing tape or extreme packing tape so I could do combat would add too much weight? I will be using Flite Test's Power Pack C with a 3S 2200mah lipo.

That airframe actually handles weight really well. I don't believe the weight will be a problem.

I just flew a 2200 40c(200g) battery for 20 minutes at about 50% throttle with occasional 100% and still had 14% left in the usable mah. So I could have flew a few more minutes, started raining too hard and didn't want to get tx too wet.

The weight of packing tape is negligible for this plane. Also it adds great color and waterproofing as well as strength. The extreme packing tape I believe is much heavier and not necessary.I have the swappable Bloody Wonder MKIII and use extreme packing tape only on the power pod. I often use packing tape. On planes where weight is an issue I remove some of the paper. That is not necessary here.
Good luck, LooseBruce
