    I have tried both Polar Pro and 3rd party units to no avail. The response from Polar Pro that you should have to take it off and reinstall every flight is not acceptable.
    Has anyone come across one which remains clear?

    It does not come in contact with the gimbal, i leave it on all the time.

    P.S. It comes with zip ties for extra security, i am not using them, has been installed for 2 months and fly atleast 3-4 times a week. No problems.

    I have the same one and no gimbal contact. I also trust accessories from Dynamic 3D Solutions - he is a fellow Phantom owner and everything I have gotten from him is great

    Silly thought but I'm thinking you put the guard on in reverse. There should be no guard under the camera or lens. I have gimbal guards on both my Phantoms and the camera has no problem doing its start up dance.

    IF you have the slots in the gimbal guard properly placed in the bottom of the "skids", there should not be a clearence issue - unless you have a case of Droopy Gimbal.
