    I'm relatively new to the P3S world. I recently purchased one and threw away the plastic gimbal lock that came with it. I'm wondering if anyone has any suggestions on after market ones to buy that fit the standard?

    DJI sells replacements, but I don't know if it's worth it. The gimbal lock on my P3S fits extremely tight. I've never had a gimbal lock with such poor fitment before. Perhaps mine is just botched though.

    It looks like most of the 3D printed locks are made for the P3P/P3A. I haven't compared them, but DJI has different part numbers for them. So, something about them is different.
