Well, my FT TC-4 weighs in on the kitchen scales at 1,438g with 4 cells with a small receiver pack and the bodyshell using rubber tyres.
The Japanese 4 cell weight limit is 1,375g.

The FT TC-4 had an Orion V2 6x1 and an LRP QC2 speedo.
My normal TC-4 weighs in at 5g less but without the receiver pack and that has a Novak GTX in it and a V2 7x1.
