For anyone interested, I broke down the 817 and weighed it all, looking for savings to make it light enough to take on a long trip.  Hoping to get it to ~700g with batteries.

- Covers are 300g: replace with carbon
- Energizer Li AA's lightest choice that I can get in time.
- Microphone is 170g
- misc parts: speaker bracket, spkr, so-239
- lighten chassis
