We’ve finished moving the battery to the sump area (under the baggage shelf, and the ground power to the side wall above the gear bow, and the contactors underneath the bow. With much anticipation we reweighed the airplane, and found the nose weight had dropped to 113 lbs. This puts the empty arm at 138 1/4″, and is slightly better than I’d expected. This most excellent result means we can now carry four 200 lbs folks in the airplane, and if/when we get a CS prop our W&B will be pretty close to ideal.
