the observer found will lift a hell of a lot even though the dry weight is so much. I fly a camera ship ( the bergen observer) with a camera probably just slightly smaller than that and it doesn't seem to struggle at all ive

the only thing ive noticed with the bergen is that it likes lots of power to get her in a rock solid hover with a lot of weight

I have experience with getting the Observer EB to heavy lift up to nearly 30 pounds AUW.

Send your engine to B.H.Hanson and get the Pro-Plus upgrade, which is about $175. Al balances the crank, flywheel and lightens the piston. He then cleans up the ports and replaces the paper jug gaskets with copper. After the upgrade, the G26 runs smoother and at higher RPM. He claims up to 4hp at 12,500 rpm.

To take advantage of the higher RPM, you will need to change the pinion to get an 8.18 gear ratio. Run the mains at 1600RPM. After all this, the Observer is one lifty son-of-a-gun!

The standard bergen observer mount isn't big enough for the HVX 200. If I remember correctly.
