Blade 200QX XMTR & Payload Questions

1) Can I use my JR X8103 XMTR with Spectrum Module to fly the 200QX

2) Will the 200QX safely carry my Sony Action Cam. cam weight is 3.2 oz.

Thanks

Too much payload, IMHO.
My testing is indicating that 1 oz. is ideal, but it will lift up to 2 oz. for certain missions. I'm not saying it won't lift it, just that it's probably going to cause you problems!

As to the TX, I would assume that any DSM based module should bind with it.

I guess I was hoping for something a little more optimistic, but I realize these are still pretty small ships.

My LaTrax Alias can loft it for about 1 1/2 minutes then it's earthward bound. It's pretty much 3/4 to full throttle, however.

Thanks for the reply!

Yeah, that kind of flying will burn out your motors and flight controllers quickly!

It's like putting 50 cinderblocks in your car. You CAN do it and the car will roll, but it's not a good idea. The Mobius or #16 Keychain makes a fine camera for the 200qx. Here is a late evening shot I just took with the Mobius and 200QX (downsized).

Wow, very nice image quality! I checked out some video as well, I'm astounded at the quality vs. the price. Sure beats spending $400 for a quad to carry my camera when I just want to shoot some basic video. Thanks again for your help!
