    I need to now the max load of the dji phantom.
    I'm installing as a fpv quadcopter
    with a 1080p Gopro Hero HD
    i'm installing the following:

    2x Turnigy S3 C20 2200mah batteries in parr.

    Hopefully he can carry this without any problem

    if needed i will add anothet batterie turnigy 1450mah 2S for the FPV transmitter, but possibly this will be to much

    Can members of this forum who have installed fpv on the phantom can inform me what they did. i'm looking for a flight time around 20 min min.

    thanks in advance

    that's a lot of little add-ons, but imagine it will still fly.
    however even with two batteries, you will never get close to 20 minutes flying time.
    maybe 12-14 if you're lucky.

    Remove all the stuff and attach weights until it no longer has lift, then weigh the weights.

    Change components and props or whatever to experiment.
