    I just noticed my P3P is missing 2 of the plastic bars that go in the little shock absorber bags..
    The bags are in place but theres nothing holding them there
    I looked in the bag that they send the extras with.
    In the bag There was 1 bar ,4 bags and 1 of the clips that came with the P3 which leads me to believe there should have been 4 of each in there.
    Are they the same as the P2

    There should be two plastic drop pins on your gimbal. There's no need for four. I'm guessing that P2 drop pins would work on the P3. But, honestly, zip ties work just as well. I found replacing the pins to be a pain. So I substituted some loosely fitted zip ties, and trimmed the excess. I just received my P3, and haven't had a chance to compare the drop pins for the two copters. What I have found is that the rubber vibration absorbers that the P2 Vision+ and the P3 come with don't last long. I had to replace them on the P2V+ I use at work after only a few flights. So I installed "heavier" ones.

    The terminology is anti-drop pins and dampers.
    Only 2 anti-drop pins is standard.

    Anti drop pins ,got it.
    Now that I read your explanation's I understand.
    I'm also going to be short 1 anti drop pin because I already installed it :confused:oops
    Hence a few zip ties will go in the bag as backup.
    Thank You both
