Pelican and FireFly payload

tarekM
The doc says that the payload is around 600grs. However, it does not say whether the onboard computer's weight is to be subtracted from the payload.

I mean, in the case of the Pelican with a Mastermind (325grs): does the payload fall down to 275grs??

Thanks

Hi Tarek,

the Mastermind is part of the payload and thereby reduces the remaining payload. With the most recent firmware the Pelican can actually carry up tp 650g. An AscTec Mastermind with CPU-Option 3a weighs 355g on the Pelican. So you have 295g of payload left for other equipment.
