    Im looking for a lightweight gimbal guard. I was looking at the Polar Pro one but have read that it interferes with the gimbal start up process. Anyone using these? How do they affect flight?

    I haven't used the Polar Pro version, but I've tried other brands and none affected the flight. If you want to see what else is available, you can find a list of commonly used camera guards here.

    Many of these hit the gimbal, I wouldn't recommend this item.

    The UAVbits gimbal guard looks nice and has some good reviews on it. Haven't tried it yet but it's already on transit.
