Gaza - can you make the subject line section in the forum topic list wider? It's cutting off the subject field really short.

Had another negative encounter, it's been a few years since the last one, just an uneducated ******, going on about drones being illegal yada yada yada.    :-/
Still that didn't spoil my flying time, had an absolute blast  ~~

I';ve got a F550-WKM loaded! With a small camera and landing gear and 5000 3s Battery it weighs in at 2400 on the nose..

But I';m taking fixed camera mount off and changing the camera (Most of the weight to be honest) to a gopro and putting on a 565g gimabal on..  I';m guessing I will be running at 2800g  300g over.  I';m running 10" Graupners appart from that all standard. 

Was wondering if anyone else is flying a little over what manual says?

Vin,

TM1000, Fatshark Attitude SD, Sony Exview Had II CCD 650 Line Sony Effio-E, DJI iOSD, Hexacrafter Brushless Gimable Fat-S Spironet Antenna

Just done some calcs

Gimbal = 565g
Frame = 478g
Camera = 68g
Landing Gear = 170g
WKM = 118g
iOSD = 42g
TX Ground Station = 23g
Motors x 6 = 336g
Esc'; x 6 = 162g
TX and FTP Tx 12g

Total 1974g

Battery max weight 3s 5000 = 443.g

Grand total 2417g  :crossfingers:

I need to get out more....

BYOD

HI Vin,

The main reason for not over loading the frames is straight forward, you will not have enough control over the system in flight, the weight of the system needs an opposite force to stop its movement, so if you are descending at speed or moving forward at speed you will need a lot of power to stop it, see Newton';s laws of motion for more information, if you are intrested in this type of stuff :) The other thing I have seen a number of times is the "prop" failed flight, this is another issue where the weight on each prop becomes to much and they let go! So I would stay within side the figures on the systems for the Max Takeoff Weight :)

Regards

Martin.
