    Looking for a Gimbal Guard to Protect my GoPro just in case a crash may occur. Preferably a guard that stiffens the frame and projects the Gimbal and the camera, but also be able to give the camera room for play. Thanks.

    Gimbal guards are a waste of money and really protect nothing in the event of a hard landing or crash as the gimbal/camera are less then quarter inch off the table. Either buy longer landing gear or snap no extensions but even those may not protect your quad from a crash. The most vulnerable item on the gimbal is the ribbon cable under the tilt motor of being snagged on something and damaged requiring repair.
