    What is the weight of a stock FC40 with camera and one battery. I have looked and cannot find more than takeoff max of 1200g or 1400g depending on whom you ask. Thanks

    it's definitely NOT 1400g, (I think my Phantom with gimbal and GoPro comes in at under 1300g)

    1200g sounds about right.

    No. I want to know what the empty weight is before anything additional is added/changed. 1200 is the max takeoff weight, not the tare weight. sorry should have been more clear.

    From memory my FC40 with nothing on or in it was 670 GMs. Maximum recommended Total mass is 1200 and I am now flying at 1360 ..M

    Mine is 860 grams, but I have prop guards and the wider, taller landing gear.

    I just checked the dji wiki website and it list the wake off weight less than 1200 grams.
