That is not a light weight flashlight.
150.3 grams. It's fine. We have at least 300g to play with when using a TB48 before we even get close to the recommended takeoff weight per motor (800g/each).

If anyone's interested, I'm copying this guy, Garret Bryls' setup.

Parts:

Streamlight TLR-1 HPL Long Gun Tactical Light Kit, Black 69219:

Aluminum Plate: Select "cut to size" and get it 5.5 inches long. Bend at 45 degree angle.

It looks pretty simple. Even if this is not it, this would work. It looks like two rods well secured to the legs, on on each side, so that when the gear is down, they touch and could probably pinch or allow something to hang over it.when the gear is lifted, it spreads the two rods and whatever was I between or over, drops. Pretty great idea actually.

Yes, it's a great idea! I saw something there, but I could not discern what it was or how it might work.

With the gear down, would it provide enough tension to "grip" something?

I'll try to dig up his close up pictures and description later to post here but the bars actually overlap about 4 inches, he uses rubber insulators underneath the clamps to protect the arms and he spot welded the bars to the clamps basically.

I see water too... in my basement. No working on the quad for me today. I have been cleaning up water all day. Hopefully tomorrow will be a better day.

Ok some details of Garret's payload delivery system in his own words:

"We used 1/8" stainless steel rods TIG welded to stainless steel clamps and the wrapped in rubber grommets for protection [of the Inspire CF arms]".

"We use small S-Binders to attach to the aerial delivery system. Just point the camera straight down to find your target and retract the landing gear to drop."

Pictures he provided below. Turns out he also has a FLIR setup working from the Inspire! Hopefully more on that to come as well :)
