How much weight can you ad to a Trex-450
Hey guy's,

I was wondering how much weight you can add to a Trex-450. Want to add a little camera under my bird.

Anyone done this before?

you could probably carry a pound of extra weight. Be aware though that carrying a lot of weight will shorten your flight times and pose a challenge should something happen to the drivetrain during flight at the wrong moment.Stupidity can be cured. Ignorance is for life!

I have a camera that weights 190 gram with mounting stuff and batteries.

Should I be able to carry it?

Do you think I have to upgrade motor and ESC? I'm using the standard Align stuff.

I read this over at rcg the other day:
well i wondered the same thing today. so i started lifting things with my rex.
i started with 2 extra batteries taped together and zip tied under the rex. easy as pie!! sooo..... let see what else i could lift, i have a 1/12 scale diecast ford gt, probably weighs 2-3 pounds, duct taped the car to the skids, lifted it but had a harder time. time to raise head speed and throw on some 335 blades!!!, lifted better this time. now for the real test, will it lift my 8 pound traxxas jato rc car??? so i tied 3 feet of fishing line to the center of the rex and to the front of the jato, the rex was staged on the left, connected to the jato 3 feet away. i spun up and lifted off in to a hover above the jato. raised the head speed to max and slowly applied more pitch. the front easily lifted off and was vertical at about 2/3 pitch, more pitch and i can hear the motor starting to strain to keep up, finally close to full pitch the jato left the ground for a second, so i gave it full pitch and lifted it about one foot, i was happy with that, so i set it down and landed. check battery motor and esc, the impulse batt was cool, the motor and esc were hot but that's to be expected for the abuse i just put them through.
