    This is my Phantom. She has carbon fiber legs with the Emerson Go Action cam and it water proof casing attached, Also I have a Fat Shark cam and transmitter with a small but very bright light. Now I took this down to the post office and asked them to weigh it and she said it weighed 2Ib 2oz, I believe is under 1000 grams by 30 or so!
    Does this seem correct? Does anyone have close to the same setup that may weigh over or close like I seem to be? It brings to question to on what others get for flight time with the 1000 gram limit, I've been getting about 7 minutes on two different battery's although they are the only two I have at the moment for this Phantom so I have used them a lot and don't have a tester for them!

    With all the gear you have on there, I would guess yours weighs closer to 1100g, perhaps a tad more.
    -if it were under 1000g, you would be seeing slightly better flight times.

    with this hobby, use it as an excuse to get a solid digital kitchen scale, (works i the kitchen as well)
    they're not too pricey, and this way you can use it to determine how it influences your flights.

    Did you calculate the weight of the battery too?

    Yes the battery was in and props on when I weighed it! I can see that this loser Justsomegay guy has responded to this post but I don't care to read his senseless comments. Kind of stupid they have an ignore button but they still let people on your enemy list comment to your posts! Any way I'm going to take it down to my local deli and have her weigh it on their scale and see what I get from that although one would think the post office scale would be more accurate just something don't seem right so I'll double check!
