Default

port = 419 lbs
stbd = 416 lbs
nose = 240 lbs

The problem I have is this. 1 x (about 250 lbs) co-pilot seated, 3/4 full fuel, slider canopy open, when the other pilot ( about 200 lbs ) got on the step and tried to get onto the wing, the tail hit the ground.

Note this was with the engine cowls top and bottom off, no wheel pants. Even when I did have them on, it still feels AFT CofG.
