In case some of you like me find the Anafi controller ridiculously heavy, be aware that a third of the weight comes from 2 dead weights totalling 113gr that can easily be removed.

Balance with a phone is a bit less good without them, but I don't think it's going to be very noticeable in real life and I'd rather have the weight saving.
Screws are Torx T6, need a screwdriver, the common bits are too short.

While you were under the hood...did you see a way to extend the spring 6mm so we could leave the cases on our phones?

Nope didn't take the holder apart, my "drone" phone just fits as is, and with my everyday one it's not the width but the thickness that doesn't work anyway...

Thanks for sharing! Now if we can just find a simple mod to improve the range of the controller...

What are the benefits. It s not like controller weight affects the drone... if any thing it must make the controller / phone top heavy, doesn’t it?
Just didn't feel right to me as unnecessarily heavy every time I was picking it up...
