    Who said you have to build a huge copter to fly Weapon?

    My copter weights 3.6kg only, props (15/16) and landing gear included.
    Gremsy H7 gimbal 1.5kg
    Just got my new Epic-W which weights the same as Weapon CF, 1.5Kg (3.35lbs) plus Jetpack and media, 1.9kg
    2x 4500 6S Lipos for copter, 1x 6800 4s gimbal and camera, Connex, Rtmotion Latitude, cables and you can count.
    Depending on the lens used, total take off weight is 10-10.5kg.

    So NO, I don't have altitude drop. Sorry.
    And because my setup is so light I can easily fly up to 85km/h (22-23m/s) too.

    This is by far the worst Gimbal I have ever used. It fell apart almost immediately and the customer support is a joke. Unless your using a fist size camera that weighs nothing you won't get any value from it. Even then, with the smaller camera I doubt you'll ever be able to achieve the kind of creative shots you are hoping to achieve.

    Gremsy just blames their customers and continues selling plastic junk. Do not buy.

    I had to start taping my battery to the Machine after only one week of use and very limited use . I bought it for my FS 700 and it shakes like crazy. The joystick that comes with the device stop working after two weeks . My batteries and charger stopped working after about a month of limited use . They then took almost a month to send me a replacement . do yourself a favour go by a ronin.

    Hi Zac, welcome to the forum.

    If it's not too much trouble, would you be kind enough to change your user name to your real first name and last name, please? The reasons for this (and how to do it) are explained here: http://forum.freeflysystems.com/index.php?threads/real-names.497/
    Thanks
    Andy
