    Zenmuse gimbal weights 125g, but it requires the PMU to be added if your going to fly with a Phantom Naza-M V1.

    The reason why I'm asking is that I was planning to by Tarot's gimbal which weights 192grams, but as I found out that Zenmuse weights only 125g I got intrested.

    -What is the overall weight with Zenmuse gimbal & PMU.

    The weight of the v2 PMU is 28g by itself.

    You also have the option of replacing the internal PMU board in the phantom with the "upgrade board" which I believe will actually shave a gram or two from the stock weight.

    I'm curious where you got the figure of 125g, as most other gimbals barely manage to get under 190g.

    DJI lists it at 230g (http://www.dji.com/tech-spec/zenmuse-h3-2d-gimbal-spec/)
    but guess that also includes the 70g gopro.

    Tech sheet reads "Gimba weight.....230 gms". I don't see anything to suggest that includes the GPH3B....OR the additional electronic hardware. It would be nice to settle that issue once and for all. Anyone have a removable Zenmuse? Additionally, there have been some complaints of burnt out servos when unbalanced by a filter.

    For an example the manufacturers website tells that it weights 230g with GoPro included (as you can see in the picture I attached). I got the 125grams weight from a re-seller who checked out the actual weight for me.

    Thanks. Soooo.....a Zenmuse + PMU with a GP3B would weigh 260 gms. A GP3+B would be 235 gms. A Tarot with GB3B is 300 gms....275 with the GP3B+. That seems pretty clear and definitive at this point.
