Mine, with recovery gear, weighs 3.5 oz - I don’t build particularly light and mine has a kevlar leader, triple length woven elastic shock cord.

Glad you posted that.
I had a spare ESAM so I opened the package
I did not split the nose cone / motor shroud.
But all the components weighed in at 82g.

How much does glue and paint typically weigh?

As another test tomorrow I'll take this Crossfire, weigh it down to 82g externally so the parachute deploys and try another launch.
