    i have - fc40 with gopro 3+ approx 100g , walkera gimbal (approx 150g?) 4000mah battery (yet to be tried) and i have seen the new retractable carbon fibre landing gear from hong kong (weight ragnes from 85-130g) stock landing gear is 40g.

    I want to know has anyone got all of this installed together with longer landing gear and how does it affect weight, on the stock 2200mah batt mine is kinda feeling bulky on takeoff.

    is there any way of taking more weight, upgrade motors? vision props??
