I was told by quadrocopter that the recommended payload of the CS8 is 4lbs. The weight of the camera itself is 3.5lbs without lens. I will also need to get the $500 upgraded gimbal kit to accommodate bigger cameras. My canon 16-35mm lens weights 1.5lbs. That would put me at 5lbs total payload. Has anyone flown the 1DC before on the cs8? And any tips such as wooden props, or anything help out with the extra weight? I could always use a smaller wide angle prime lens and try and stay under 4lbs. Any thoughts are appreciated!
