    Anyone know if anyone out there is planning on offering a gimbal lock to accommodate filters? I feel like this puts unnecessary pressure on the gimbal.
    Looks like it pushes it up higher into the main housing.

    I wouldn't use the gimbal lock with ND filters personally, I ran into this earlier today, i just put the factory UV filter back on before using the gimbal lock, kind of a pain but better than jacking up your gimbal.

    The DJI ND filters work no problem.

    there will be lots of optional accessories available soon enough, until then just put the stock UV filter back on for storage as suggested.

    That's what I'm doing. I would never leave it like this. It was just for the pic. It's just a small pain having to take them on and off.

    This is exactly why I purchased the DJI filters, they are the exact size and weight of the stock uv filter so no issues. I just wished DJI offered more options or even a full kit, I bought mine all individually.

    i have PL + ND with an adjustable sweet spot which makes it a tad longer than the DJI model

    I use the SRP Slip On filter set...I always remove them after my flights. They work great but are a tad on the heavier side.

    I've been flying with them since last summer with no issues whatsoever though

    This seemed to help the fit -- dang! guess I voided the warranty. Will slip a soft cover over for protection. IMG_0029.JPG
