Cullen how do you have your Heli on the scale? Looks interesting on the mounting.

I just needed a solid base. It's a slingshot band tying jig. I tared it out so as to not impact the AUW.

Finished my build last night and maidened the 516 today. One of the first to fly here in OZ

A great heli and an easy kit to build Matt.
It got a lot of interest at our field today.

Just going back to battery selection, the original purpose of this topic.
As posted above I went with a gensace 4400 65c pack.
Information found online before buying had these packs weighing in at 720g or 740g. In reality the pack weighs 670g which is a whole lot better. I have no idea why the spec sheet shows them so much heavier, maybe its packed shipping weight.
