hello guys,
i have spent hours looking and researching AP. so far i have found no indication of how much weight helicopters will carry. i have a raptor 50, i am learning with a hawk 30. while i am learning i am building a rig for a camera. How much weight will a standard raptor 50 v2 carry. so i have an idea of weight for the mount. also is there any modifications i can do to the raptor to get it to lift more?? any help would be very helpful

Thanks

My commercial mount wieghs about 2lbs 1 oz. with 10oz more for the camera. A Sony dv-1. I am running it on a sceadu 50

If black boxes survive air crashes -- why can't they make My Heli out of that stuff? :)

Skill
Alot has to do with your skill and ability also.
The heavier the ship the less responsive and faster it will go down.
Stick with any of the commercially available 30 sized mounts and a camera under 1.5 lbs and the Raptor shouldn't fail.
However it is going to come down like a brick if you have to auto it.
