    So, I want to fly above the scene with some speedlight (total weight exactly 500g with 4 eneloops) and trigg it wireless right from my dslr.
    Any advise how to attach it to drone? Or some experience about additional weight with P3?,
    Please, tell me about it.

    Wouldn't it be a lot easier to just use a pole ?

    i'm not allowed to step into this object (metro depot, open air), but also it's not forbidden to take a photo.

    according to the video its a LED bar, it seems a little bit heavy though after looking at some pictures of it. Personally, for night time flying i attach one of those led lights people strap to their heads when hiking so i get a better visual of my P3S. Mine isnt quite bright enough to use as flash but i got the lightest one, which has the least brightness. the heavier ones i saw are definitely much brighter.

    I have a few yongnuo (speed light clones) and w 4 batteries they are good weight. I'd expect 30% of the weight of a p3.

    Seems to heavy to try to carry and the large shape would cause all sorts of weird wind resistance
