    hi all I am back again with another small problem
    I am running and fc40 with walkera G2D white plastic gimbal and sj4000
    and also the dji cam at the same time I cut my flights down from 10 minutes
    to 9 minutes to compensate the weight.
    but now I bought a gopro hero 4 black and its heavier than sj4000
    what flight times are you guys getting on these setups?
    I was thinking of cutting flights down to 8 minutes does that sound right?
    thanks guys :)

    I am getting around 7-8 minutes with FC40, std props, Walkera G-2D metal (120 grams) gimbal, GoPro Hero #+ Black, std 2200 phantom lipo.

    I am getting 13-14 minutes with the MultiStar 4000. Total weight 1100 grams.
