    Does anyone here with a gimbal guard on the bottom of the P3S notice a significant increase in drag when flying/flying into the wind?

    I think the idea is good in theory and I have a 3D printer so I could have one by tonight, but I am wondering if the benefits outweigh the costs (if any)?

    I have never noticed any differences when flying with a gimbal guard on any of my Phantoms.
