We had during the last months some requests about the payload the Maxi-Joker 3DD can lift.

Here the result:

We used one liter Coke bottles (1.1 kg/2.4 lb.) mounted on a 2.8 kg wooden plate (6.2 lb.).

Demo one is four bottles (7.2 kg / 15.9 lb.), demo two is six bottles (9.4 kg/20.7 lb.).

The Maxi-Joker 3DD with batteries and rotorblades (=the rest in the pics above) is 5.4 kg (11.9 lb.), about 200 grams more than the Joker 3DD (blades, boom parts). So total weight with six bottles is 14.8 kg (32.6 lb.)

That's fantastic Gerd!!

What flight times can you get at full weight-30lbs??

Can you list motor/battery and rotor/pinion specs so we can start sourcing parts?

When will the kit be shipping to North American Distributers?

For both motors the current was quite low.
Components are listed at the beginning of each film.
Pinion is stock.

Very nice. I'm assuming that's torque tube?

Stickers from the Coke-bottles, too much thrust

Look at the pic above, one is already missing.

Thanks Noobs that's cleared it up nicely. So it seems there is a battery to power the tail motor as well, extra weight
How big is the rotor span on this heli?
