Too Rolling (Red)Stoned - the first weight-in
So, I found a suitable platform, hit 'tare' and started stacking. I placed the body section on first, stacked on three sheets of posterboard, and topped it off with recovery components. Yup, that should give a good estimate of the weight of the lower half. The results - 3 lb! This actually makes me hopeful. If I can keep the weight of the top section (less removable tower, which won't count) to about 1.5lb, I'll be in great shape. I need to acquire the tube I need and then weigh the components. I have some ideas to keep the weight down, such as sacrificing some BT-101 for the project.
