35kg is 77 pounds or 1234 ounces

Really though,  please read the manual or offical description for the information, that sort of question worries me as you obviously havent taken the time to research your new toy

I think it was a simple ? that they hoped to be answered quickly while they looked, and it was, we cant kno everything about our stuff instantly... I have read the manual 3 times, I don't kno everything about my drone, does that worry you?

The more you read and ask and do the more you learn
What worried me was the question, 35kg?, 3.5kg maybe but 35kg must be the weight of a 8/9 year old!

Usually POUND (when it refers to weight) is abbreviated "lb.", although I have sometimes seen "lbs." The Latin word for pound is LIBRA, and that word was once used in English when referring to money. Apparently our word "pound" comes from the Latin word "pondo" which means weight; the Latin expression seems to have been "libra pondo" for "a pound in weight" (as opposed to a pound in money). The Italian monetary unit, the lira, as well as the British pound were coins that were once equivalent to a pound of a precious metal. Both are abbreviated with a fancy capital L (not followed by a period). The story of the terminology can be found in the OXFORD ENGLISH DICTIONARY, and also (under pound, libra and in the appendix) in the AMERICAN HERITAGE DICTIONARY.

A small point, but in Canada you do need a license (or more accurately a  Special Flight Operations Certificate) if you fly a Phantom commercially.

You do need a license, anyone carrying 35kg on your back for fun needs a license or he needs locking up.
