I am looking for a spec that gives the weight of the propstick (in usb and non-usb version) and can't seem to find it anywhere. Does anyone have that information?

A very unscientific measurement puts it around 8 grams,. (compared the weight with a 8 gram servo).

BTW, the Propstick does not come in a non-USB version.

The PropSTICK did come in a non-USB version, but it was discontinued when the USB version was introduced:

Thanks for that link Phil. That was a nice read on the development of the PropStick. That was a year before I joined the forum, (under a different name).

Maybe the OP should have quoted some part numbers?

Good estimate Publison! The Propstick USB comes in at 5.7 grams.

Thank you all.

Given that Parallax products are increasingly used for aerial vehicles, adding weight in the specs would be a good idea!
