    Has anyone tried this. I just ran across it on EBay.

    I hate how the camera moves around and the plastic shipping lock that I saved is always falling off.

    The OEM gimbal lock is hard to remove if you install it properly. Here's a good tutorial:

    Wow. Thanks. Couldn't figure this one out. When I actually opened up the Phantom when it was first shipped, this lock fell back into the box, so I figured it was a common thing. Maybe you should also forward this post down to the people who package this!

    The most important part is at 1:31. Once you line the gimal lock up and push it into the slot, you want to squeeze the gimbal lock and back of the gimbal arm together. That's what holds it in place.
