    Mine weighs 1373 grams. P2NV, H3-3D gimbal, GoPro Hero4, iOSD, Flytrex Live and Datalink module. Technically I am 73 grams overweight.
    Without all those accessories it weighs a svelte 994 grams.

    I suspect the P2 could lift more, but the endurance and range would plummet.

    I don't know how much it will lift, but the more it lifts the harder it is on the electrical system. If you keep it up it will have to come down, sooner then you want. My bird is a fat ***, and thrust boost props help.
    The life of a phantom is not that long.
