    Is there any easy way to figure out what weight a tail should be?

    I was looking for one that used the angle of the tail mount + the offset angle from the motor + diameter of blades + length of the tail to give you the weight of the tail.

    I do have all these calculations done in graph form. If you give me your e-mail, I can e-mail them to you.

    Also, take a look at this link. The equations on the bottom the link page are exactly what you are asking for and might be enough for you:
