Related to my other thread about mounting the Flir Vue Pro on this drone, I was a little concerned if it was going to be able to handle it. I've seen a little discussion on here, but I didn't find a conclusive answer (maybe I missed it) on what it might carry. My gimbal and camera (and other parts) come to about 1lb 5oz. I made a water bottle,, with rocks and water, that is right at 1lb 9oz. Going over just a little, for a safety factor.

The drone handled it perfectly. It didn't really even act like it had a weight on it. No dipping when hovering, still quite responsive. I didn't zip around very fast, just casual flying, but it was very stable.

So now to finalize the assembly of the camera setup and get it on there.

I didn't do a flight time test, but flew around for about 5 minutes.

Just in case someone was interested in an actual payload test (unless I missed someone else's).

I have flown my H480 with dual GP 360 cameras (1 on top 1 on bottom) and lighting as well all mounts and prop guards. That was about 1.5 lbs. No issue. I beleive the H seriess will lift close to there weight in the right conditions.

I also had the standard Yuneec 4K camera and gimbal attached.

Nice, that's good to know. Later I may end up putting an RBG camera on there as well. My own, maybe not theirs, just to have dual views.
