    Just got my Plus today after a successful P2V sale !

    If you need to transport your aircraft is it advisable to reinstall the gimbal clamp and if so has anybody found a way of doing it !

    I replace it after flight.. it's not as tricky as it appears.. with the power off, position the camera in it's front facing, up-right position, slide the guard over the camera, and carefully keep sliding it and adjusting the camera so that it all fits square.. just don't force it and you should be fine. I also always put the lens cover on before the guard (to avoid finger prints on it)
