    I think that heavy for 4s. But that's just my opinion

    I was curious so I weighed my DF33 with hardware and a TP 4050 motor, 6 1/2 lbs without batteries. Add 10000ma and just over 8 lbs. Has been very competitive and if any lighter it might not finish as well. Your Finch should be fine.

    weight is your friend when racing in rough or windy conditions.

    A heavy boat will not be disadvantaged as far as top speed goes, the only downside may be how quickly it gets up from standstill, which generally is not a problem. Like has been said, the extra weight is an advantage in rough water. Of course I am talking in relation to oval racing and not SAW, that has different dynamics.
