    Would there be any problem if I attached a go pro hero 3 to the phantom? It weighs 50 grams and shouldn't matter much right? I'll make sure the wifi is turned off

    Do you intend to REPLACE the Vision+ camera or as an ADDITION? It is fine in either case, but do NOT attempt to attach it to the Vision+ factory gimbal or camera.

    That would be just fine. At 50 grams you are adding less than 2 ounces of weight so flight times should not suffer a big hit.

    What is the total weight of your accessories? Noticing much effect on your flight times?
