In the first batch of FlightController 3 (our Anafi RC Controller), there was an extra 100g weight added to provide balance to the controller when ‘loaded’ with your smartphone.
The RC weight was 385g.
To remove this weight you don’t need when hiking in mountains and your back pack is already full of DSLR and water...
You can use the Torx T6 screwdriver included in the spare propeller kit of the Anafi, remove 6 screws as shown on pictures below, open the cover and remove the two weights (metallic parts painted in white and held in their place with a black sticker A and B)... then close the Flight Controller that now weights less than 280g.
I did not really dare to do that at the beginning, but screws can be easily removed and no wire needs to be disconnected for this manipulation.

Certainly not, but it's good for people to see the discussion behind :)

Ok... did you see the tool is the same as the propeller one as delivered with the Anafi in the cardboard box with spare props ? I searched in shops before to understand I already got one for free !!
