Haven't seen many videos around were people tried to test the limits of just how much the phantom can lift, so I have an idea on how find out just how much the phantom can lift using a fish scale and some rope. Ok, so today if I can find my old scale, I was going to tie one part of the rope to something fixed to the ground and the other side to the bottom of the scale, and the other piece of rope to the top of the scale to the phantom. Then once everything is setup, I'll take the phantom up until the rope is nice and tight and then give it full lift and write down how much weight it tops out at. (I'll be testing this in gps/atti/and manual) Then to confirm my results, I'll try to lift that same amount of weight in an actual flight. So with that said, do you think this would be a good idea, or do you think it would hurt the phantom by putting to much of a strain on it? Also might have to subtract the weight of the actual scale and rope to get a more accurate reading since I'll be lifting the scale instead of hanging it from something... I think that should do the trick.
