The normal empty weight is around 265 kilos for the 582 powered aircraft to around 275 kilos for the 100 hp aircraft, the aircrafts MTOW is 520 kilos so the minimum useful load is around 235 kilos for pilot, passenger, fuel and luggage.

Q: I don't have much mechanical ability - could I built the Allegro Kit?
