Getting ready for weight and balance on my S-1S tomorrow. I've only got one scale so I'll have to get the plane up on blocks and leveled, then raise one tire at a time and slip the scale under the tire to get the weight on main wheels. (i.e. my scale is about 1.5 inches thick so I'll have the main tires on 1.5 inch thick wood blocks. Tail will be at some appropriate height to maintain fuse level) Are there any hardpoints on the fwd fuselage, gear or lower wings where I can use a jack to lift one mainwheel tire at a time? If I remove the wheel fairings is there some way to hook onto the wheel axles? Thanks, Paul Klusman Pitts S-1S - soon to have updated wt. and bal. p.s. Thanks to the folks who helped me out on my last wt. and bal. question!
