Hello, I would have liked to know the weight of the drone once mounted (with all the components).
Thank you

Hello Paul,
You made me weigh my Inspire again, which was good since I didn't remember its weight anymore.
The total weigh of my own is 6 Lbs. ( 2.73Kg) including the 3D printed canopy. It could have been a little lighter but I printed the parts with an infill of 50% to 80% which is a little more than regular prints. Some guys here recommend infill as low as 30% to 40%
Moreover, the electronics, motors, Battery and metal parts are heavier that those installed in smaller drones.
I hope this helps,
Victor
