I am new to the art of building quadcopters and am looking to build a camera platform with a payload of 250g. With the following setup would that be possible or could someone point me in the direction of calculations to find out the answer.

I have a 450 frame that weighs 363g. My motors and escs are ~200g and my flight computer and transmitter are ~20 g. And my battery weighs in at 254g

I am using 2212 brushless motors at 1000 kv. My battery is a 3s lipo with a 30c discharge rate (4000mAh) and the props I am using are 1045 nylon carbon props.

Any and all help would be greatly appreciated, if you need any further I’d be happy to comply.

Perhaps this link would be of some help.

The key here is to have a payload to thrust ratio of 1:2. The thrust of your motors can be found on the datasheet and also based on the power produced, the battery and the props.
