I am thinking of flying a Sony DV cam. Any chance this set up will fly it?

MX400 , Futaba GY401 gyro with high speed rudder servo, Spektrum DX6 radio, Align 430L brushless motor, Align 35A Brushless ESC(Governer Mode), and Thuinder 2100 Lipos. Also a BEC to free up some weight. I am going to add the metal head and tail. Also going to fly T-Rex carbon fiber blades.

The MX400 only weighs around 24 oz to begin with. Asking it to lift an additional 50% in weight is too much. If it flies at all, it will be very sluggish and underpowered. I wouldn't suggest this myself. If you do try it, remember that you will likely need to get some forward speed in ground-effect to be able to gain altitude - like full-size helis.

Thank you. Not going to try that.
