    I'm always working on the pilot weight reduction!

    It was mentioned in your first post; the battery. EarthX certified battery is 5.4 lbs. That's usually a great weight reduction.

    What Gordon and Perry said.

    IMO, I think Perry sums (no pun intended) it up best; light planes will have better 'cub' performance.
