    For my dissertation I am doing research into human-drone interaction. I am currently searching for a drone to use, which has an SDK, i know the P4/3 has, which is why i'm here.
    We want to mount a light pico projector onto the drone, how possible/safe do you think this would be?

    I have seen many mounting additional cameras and lights on drones but never heard of any one mounting a projector on it. Interesting. What's the application?

    What's it's weight compared to a phantom battery?

    I am planing on projecting an interface from the drone, and using the camera to detect gestures (might require taking out the stock one and replacing with a depth camera).

    The weight of the projector will hopefully be around 200-300g.
    I also need to keep in mind the safety implications of mounting something. I know on the P4 there are sensors to detect objects below (could be quite useful when working near(ish) people, although we intend to keep it out of reach for health and safety) . Could this be an issue trying to mount an object near the center of gravity?
