    The vertical arm on the P2V+ is the weak link in an already delicate camera gimbal. After bending mine in a minor crash, I designed a guard that will prevent objects from striking the camera. It not only protects the camera and gimbal, but also strengthens the plastic landing struts.
    If there is interest in these I will have an entire batch made from carbon fiber. They will be cut using a water jet, for a nice professional finish. I secured the prototype with zip ties.
    Let me know if you're interested.

    I just grabbed a plastic ruler from the dollar store, drilled as couple holes and did something similar. Cost was about Fifty cents cdn.

    Pays to be resourceful, but I wanted something a little stronger and it needed to look professional since I use my P2V+ for business and my clients often like to watch.

    There's definite interest on my part. Depending on price, I'd love to be part of the first (or second) batch.
