On what Planet?  The Moon has way less gravity but has a problem with atmosphere...

The Q200 factory spec was 1100 Lbs Gross on the Q200.
The Q2 factory spec was 1000 lbs Gross.

Each builder can set his own gross weight based on testing.  I've flown my Q200 at sea level just fine at 1100lbs but at Denver I think I'd be real careful about that.  It's way more fun to fly under 900 lbs!  Mine is 640 empty, add me 175lb, add 10 gal fuel = 60lb and some oil 9lbs.  Sea level 59F gives you a 700 foot takeoff, 1500FPM climb and 210 mph.   I got to lose some weight!

Fly Safe.
