    From the very helpful guys at Dave's Motors:

    Unfortunately the photos are too large. If you PM me with your email I can forward the email I got from them with the pics.

    It's really easy and there are two ways to achieve this:

    Method 1. Slam it into the ground or nearest building and it will pretty much detach itself...

    Method 2 - Remove props
    - Turn it upside down
    - Remove 2 clear anti-drop pins by snipping the top off with cable cutter or similar
    - Pull the white dampers through the holes & be careful not to drop gimbal/camera unless it's already smashed
    - Carefully detach the 3 grey ribbon cables being careful not to damage the connectors

    If you want to remove the upper part of the mounting bracket, remove the 4 Phillips head screws holding it on

    Fred....

    I'm a newly registered board member and I can't seem to send a PM. Would you mind sending your camera/gimbal removal pictures to me as well? Thanks!
