    Hi,

    I am a user of phantom 2 with some accessories, although all of them are DJI brand, I ended up with 1430 g. The setup is:

    Phantom 2,
    standard props,
    prop guards,
    Zenmuse h3-3d gimbal,
    Gopro Hero 3+ ,
    Avl58,
    iosd mini and
    standard landing gears..

    if you want a fpv experience and smooth video, you can't go lighter than this can you?

    What are your setups, and how heavy are they?

    Thanks,

    Melih

    My AUW is 1362. Other than flight times of around 15/16 minutes it flies great and is super stable.

    You could lose the prop guards to save some weight (in fact DJI do not recommend prop guards on a fully loaded P2) and if you really wanted too you could change out the Avl58 for something not so heavy.

    Yes, 1430 is way above the recommended max weight.

    My setup is Immersion Fpv Tx with mini iosd and H3-3D and its AUW is 1340.

    As mentioned above the prop guards need to go and the Avl85 is way too heavy and big for what it does. The Immersion 600mw Vtx is 21grams lighter and sooo much smaller.
