How heavy is your FPV Skyatec SKYFUN?
 
Just finished building my FPV SKYFUN. I dont think the equipment I added has increased the weight by more than 120g. What can these birds carry as far as weight goes? I have adequate thrust, just not sure how it will handle in the air.

How many people are using this platform for FPV? I'll post some pictures here shortly...

Hi Aaron,

I've got 2 Skyfuns with FPV equipment.
I usually fly them with a 2200 mah 3S 20C battery for the motor.
Then 1000 mah for video.

It can take a whole lot more than that.

Here is a video with all the above and the SimpleOSD:

FPV - Giske - SimpleOSD test (4 min 59 sec)


My guesstimate for added weight is approx 500g.

But the more weight you add, the harder it is to launch.
I've had several failed launches, check out my FPV Fail video, all the fails are with the SkyFun.

It's a real kicker to fly and can leave you trembeling :D

wow... the fail video, she looks heavy! Mine flew awesome without FPV equipment with a 2450mah 3S, and I've reduced motor battery to 2200mah 3s. For the time being, until I get my filter built, I am going to be using my 1050 3s for video. I have confidence. :) Now, where the heck is my nice weather??!
