    It would have been interesting to weigh the removed Plasti-Dip. I've always wondered how much weight this would add. Do you think it was heavy enough to make any difference in flight times?

    I don't have a scale accurate enough but my best guess would be a gram or two, so I doubt any difference in flight time.

    Why did you remove it? Was it starting to come off on its own?

    Nope, there were spots that got rubbed through because I carried the controller and phantom in one hand. The controller rubbed against the shell and made holes.
    Plus a couple dings from normal use.
