I'd like to know the load on the tailwheel in the 3-point attitude, too.

I'll ratio it back to my RV-3B (still in progress) and use it for figuring various ground-handling things.

Thanks Bill Dicus, thats what I was looking for, I want to compare apples with apples, looks like I might have a problem because mine was 114 lb in 3 point attitude. I will be getting it officially weighed in about a week, then I will know what it is in the level attitude, but it looks like it is going to be heavy when compared to yours.
