    Given there are new products coming out all the time for the P3P and the fact I need a new gimbal clamp, What is your favorite clamp?

    I like the OEM gimbal lock. It works well when installed properly.

    It is OK but have had it come off in transit. In fact when I received my phantom from the factory the gimbal clamp was rolling around in the box.

    That's the lazy factory. When I have installed it properly it has never budged

    Unless yours is not made properly (not likely), it would not be possible for it to fall off if you install it like in the video below. The key is to squeeze it onto the gimbal yaw arm when you have it lined up. The harder you squeeze, the tougher it'll be to remove.
