Flying a Vans RV-10.

Empty Weight

Weighed the plane tonight. Borrowed scales from the airport maintenance shop. Scales did not have ramps, so jacked up each wheel and slid the scales under. Came in at 1630 lbs. I was hoping for under 1600, but seeing as I have full interior panels, carpet, headliner, overhead console, I guess that isn’t bad. Gross weight is limited to 2700 lbs., so that gives me 1070 lbs. useful load. I’ll lose some more with paint when that happens later.
