Hello, I want to know the weight of the elevator balance weight of a Spitfire.
I found the attached drawing with the position 27 cast balance weight, does anybody know the weight of these masses?
There should be two of these at an elevator.
Thx

As memo the Spitfire horn balance weighed about 3.5 lbs. But it could have been increased often.
