Am I the only one who thinks that the gimbal guard needs some improvement?
To put this thing back on while outside is major pain for me :mad:
It doesn't center it self on the body and the gimbal it self is always moving so I feel I'll break it one day jamming the piece in :rolleyes:

Yup, I'm right there with you! It's a beast with arthritis. Darn right frustrating! ?

Makes me wonder if it's not better not to use it when kept in the case.

I was afraid of breaking the gimbal trying to put on the guard.
When I put in the case I just lay a piece of foam between lid and gimbal when closing so it can't move around.

I think I'll do the same from now on
Thanks

It take a little fiddling to get on but it's only probably 5 seconds worth. First world problem.

Have you heard of any breaking? It's not difficult to install, when done correctly it only takes a gentle pressure.

I've had min since the beginning of the group one shipping period and have as many, likely more flights than the majority of owners, each time I take it out the gimbal holder gets installed 4x. A non issue IMO but it's your drone so handle it however it makes you comfortable.
