According to my scale, my iPhone 13 Pro Max and Otterbox Symmetry case weigh 294g, just 4g over the limit specified in the OM6 specs. Is this within the "margin of error" and will it work OK, or is the 290g in the spec a hard limit? Has anyone here tried this combination yet?

Hello there bheiser10. Good day and thank you for reaching out. DJI suggests that it would be best to use the DJI OM6 with  iPhone 13 pro max ( without phone case ) for compatibility and reliability purposes. Thank you.

Here is a thread where someone is having issues with an iPhone 13 Pro Max. His phone is within the specs.
It could be a weight or balance issue causing his problem.

Thanks for the feedback! Based on this I'll keep looking for another gimbal that can support the Pro Max phones with case installed (removing the case & leaving the phone vulnerable each time I want to record doesn't sound good).

Alternatively buy a different case. I too have the iPhone 13 Pro Max. I have used Torras cases in the past - they are well made. Their Ultra Thin case weighs only 18 grams, so combined with your iPhone 13 Pro Max will come in under the maximum operating weight for the OM6 gimbal. I am planning to buy the OM6 gimbal myself and will need to also get a lighter case, hence my interest in the Torras case

That's a good thought. I haven't planned on replacing the Otterbox case because it provides good protection, and as expensive as these phones are, I need to protect it. But I'm exploring other case options as you suggested, maybe one of the lighter ones will be "good enough".

I have the 14 Pro Max and Symmetry case and it seems to work well with my OM6. But I also got a Torras case and switch out to use it with the OM6.

I totally agree with you. I keep thinking with every new version they'll use motors sufficient to support a Pro Max with an Otterbox Defender case.  I'll not risk my $1400 IPhone for the sake of using their gimbal. Their loss, not mine.

DaveSp, I just purchased the OM6 and have an iPhone 13 ProMax with the Defender case.  May I ask what Torras case you use with the OM6?  I am noticing the case appears to be an issue, and with our upcoming trip to Ireland and Italy this year, would like to find something more suitable to use so I don't have to keep switching cases.

Thank you

MichaelJames.  I'd like to ask you the same question as to which case you are using with your iphone, and is yours the 13 Pro Max?
