Default Weight and Balance RV-10

Just curious if anyone would share their empty weight CG as well as actual weights at each location.

Thanks,

Pat

My aircraft came out like this:

Right Main 613
Left Main 640
Nose 366
Total = 1619 for a CG of 107.58

I have no idea why the left main is so much heavier than the right main.

I will probably weigh it again next weekend and swap the left and right scales.

Maybe double check that you are level laterally & yeah, swap scales.
I'm waiting on scales now, so I'll post my weights in a week or so.

Does the heavy wing have a servo and electronic trim?
