3DR IRIS with Gimbal and tall legs is too heavy to fly safely?

In the IRIS forums at DIYDronres, Ardupilot, and the IRIS Facebook group I have seen reports from various users who have either complained about poor flight performance of their IRIS, or had crashes due to performance loss towards the end of a flight. All these issues happened while flying IRIS with tall legs and gimbal. As I just wanted to start flying with this combination, I wanted to find out what could be the reason for these issues and crashes. In the end I don’t want my IRIS to crash.
