I would like to ask if anyone is able to post weight and balance figures for an O-200 powered Parrakeet, or if not available any other info that would help me to work it out.  I'm considering the keet as a potential project but would like to make sure that I understand its capabilites from a W&B perspective first.

Thanks in advance.

Paul, what are you really looking for here? The A-1 has a gross of 728 lbs, and the A-4C gross was increased to 860 lbs. Empty on the A-1 was about 470 and on the A-4C is about 565. I've seen some homebuilts list their gross at just over 1000 lbs, but I've never seen any stress calculations to justify that. Fuel load is between 10 and 12 gallons unless you build a 1 piece wing and put a tank in the upper center section. Again, there are no drawings or other design info to support that.
