    I just put a Tagg GPS tracker on my Phantom 2, and fully loaded its coming in at 1322 grams. Should I try to trim the fat some before flying, or should this be ok, other than reducing my flight time slightly?

    Take it out for a flight and check out the handling characteristics. A lot depends on how well you distributed the weight. You'll know pretty quick if its too fat to fly.

    Thanks for the replys. Looks like it should be safe to fly then, I will just keep a close eye on my battery level. Thx again.
