    Hey everyone,

    I'd like to see if there are alternative power solutions for powering the Alta X in order to keep it under 55lbs. Currently, the Alta X with the Flight Packs from Freefly and the Movi Pro attached sits as 49.26lbs with no camera attached. Being able to carry less than 6lbs of camera is laughable if you're trying to fly legally in the US.

    I currently own another system that requires two 12s packs, but I'm running four 8,000mah Tattu batteries in series, which is half the weight of the current battery setup as each weighs 2.39lbs. Albeit the flight time is less, but that's not important to me.

    Any other options would be great as I can't find smaller flight packs that Freefly offers.

    Thanks Jason, but ideally I'm looking to save 4kg's. Basically something that would be the same weight as 4x 8,000mah Tattu 6s batteries.
