This morning my friend Bill came over to do the weight and balance on the airplane. We got all of the scales out.

We calibrated all three scales using a 25 lb weight I had in the hangar just to be certain of their accuracy.

Drum roll....the final numbers.
Right Wheel: 501 Lbs, Arm 69.125"
Left Wheel: 509 Lbs, Arm 69.375"
Tail Wheel: 64 Lbs, Arm 250.25"
Total: 1074 Lbs

CG: 80.037"

This turns out to be a great distribution of weight. Every configuration I am pretty good in. The only situation I have to be aware of is a pilot and passenger with full bags and empty tanks.
