What does AUW (dry) include for an electric plane?

What does AUW (dry) include for an electric plane?

The aj raven states an AUW (dry) weight of 18-19lbs and I am not sure what that includes for an electric plane?

Is it without batteries?

All Up Weight. Everything is included , at least that's my understanding. The variables would be differences in component weight, higher/lower battery mah/cell count ect.

Dry means everything to fly but no fuel.

Not sure why they would say that other than maybe someone was lazy and cut-and-pasted from another manual.

I would consider an all up weight for an electric to include batteries.

I would say if you weighed it without and with it would be pretty obvious.

The Raven is not an electric only plane, its gas or electric. So Id assume that the 18-19 pounds listed on that web page is for a gas setup with the tank empty, not an electric setup with or without batteries.

Patern, which has weight as part of their rules for competition, weighs IC/fuel airplanes empty and electric ready to fly with batteries. I think this is also how most posted weights for other planes are listed.

I'll try and provide some clarity direct from the source being I manage the AJ Aircraft website. The AUW (dry) means everything ready to fly the plane minus the fuel source needed to power the engine/motor.

-With the gas setup that means no liquid fuel in the plane
-With electric that means without flight packs.
