Oddessy battery moved forward with shortened cables saves 15-18 lbs. MT prop saves about 20lbs. Lightweight cowling saves about 5 lbs. carbon wing tips about 9 lbs, carbon floor boards ?, no vinyl in the interior ?, light weight interior panels(.018 painted aluminum)?, no vacuum system ?, minimal instruments? Lightweight paint job?, no float kit? . More important than a few mods to keep it light, they are building the whole thing from the ground up looking for areas to save weight. That is what makes the difference between an amazing performing light plane and an average performing plane. I have been involved in lightweight Supercub builds and seen 200 lb differences in empty weights on cubs that looked similar when completed.

"carbon floor boards ?, no vinyl in the interior ?, light weight interior panels(.018 painted aluminum)?, no vacuum system ?, minimal instruments? Lightweight paint job?"
Carbon floor boards; - 14# Average, mine was more as all the fasteners were around the edges (Dozens....), headliner in mine was 14# with the bows, upolstered aluminum side panels were 32# total (Weighed them before taken them to the dump), replaced with .40" Kydex +12#, net . Vacuum pump, filter and associated instruments; -12#, can't speak to the paint job but it was drastic. Also, right side master cylinders/brakes/shuttle vales and extra hoses - 9# Just these components add up to 69#.
The carbon wing tips were the biggest surprise, -14# and that's at the maximum moment arm.

We are very happy with the new Maule. It is the best preforming Maule I have ever flown. My wife, three kids and I were legally able to load up and fly 3.5 hours to Valdez without refueling and then with the same plane we were able to land and take off shorter than all but two very light Supercubs. It is better balanced with the light MT prop. The Gamin G5 is a winner and I would definitely do that again. If anyone wants a five place bush plane that will keep up with most Supercubs in STOL capabilities this is the plane to have!

I must say this is the best fit and finish Maule I have seen come out of the factory! Ty and the production crew took EVERY step to lighten and clean up any extras that we could come up with. Kudos to the factory for taking what we asked for and nailing it! Now the next one I order will be even more scrutinized for weight savings and to my shop for some other mods Cool Cool

So long wing is still an option if you're willing to pay the $$$ for it?

This is this best thing to come from Maule in a long time. It gets them back to there core business, tuff, light, STOL, aircraft. Is there a Maule drawing of the seaplane doors? Any pics of the completed plane?

.

You can look up God's Country Aviation on Facebook lots of great pictures where Isaac is using the plane. The Seaplane doors are in the works for an STC sometime before the end of the world... Idea
