Do you use Foreflight? I can send you a couple of different DA62s' weight and balance info.

I just picked up my DA62 - so I have quite a bias … but I did spend the day with Diamond and also an evening with one of the flight instructors - the impression I got is the 62 is the plane that private owners are buying the flight schools might opt for the 42 and they all seemed to be genuinely of the opinion it’s the best plane by far, the main practical difference is really going to be useful load, luggage space and comfort. If you can afford the capital expense then I thing the 62 is the obvious choice.
