Just wondering, perhaps a little late, if anybody's tried to test the load capacity of these little guys?

 

I'm guessing it's not too much, but I'm sure it's enough to lift a pretty good (relativly) size load.

 

(whether it's enough to lift half a pound of die cast, I'm not sure, but I'll try!)

 

I saw online that somebody didn't trust it to lift one of the $10 camcorders they have out there now, but I'm guessing it's better than that at near-max throttle. If not, I'll extend the blades with styreen. Sure, it'd be bad for the motors in the long run, and wouldn't survive a good crash, but it would have to get more lift, without having too much weight. (what I have's the thickness of paper, but much stronger)

A s107 will have no problem handling one of these, especially if you took it out of its case.

I have a few of these cameras I use on my rc planes,they handle the load ok-have done it on a Syma S032,average results,the 107 can be a real problem,took off landing gear and decals but center of gravity was a problem-not something I would do-however there is a heli I own and did a small review on is the Sanhuan SH-6030 that has a spy camera incorporated-real small video out put but ok-as said on review the Syma S107 has better flying capabilities -hope that helps-

Just for fun here is a video to a plane of mine with keychain camera on board-plan got smashed to bits-my key camera is also old model latest ones are better results link here to my disaster flight

Yeah, just did tested the "it won't even lift my pen!" thing I saw on some other forum, and busted it- it'll lift a cheap metal one, but with difficulty.

 

That's why on my project, I'm ripping it down to nothing, and cutting a crapload out of the body.

 

Then, just then, it'll hopefully have enough lift to, well, lift it all...

I tested mine the other day to find out how my s107 it could lift, I wish I had a scale so I could give you a exact weight. I lifted a magnet and a few wing nuts. My s107 wouldn't even notice the weight of one of these cameras stripped down. I have a bad camera, I should prove it.
