    The gimbal shield shown in my video is to protect the gimbal and camera from bearing the full brunt of an impact during a hard landing. When I got my P3P 3 days ago, i forgot to buy it, even though i told myself its something that i cannot forget.

    Alas, i crashed my drone on the 2nd day and broke the gimbal(bummer!).

    I replaced the gimbal today with the DJI 4K Camera Gimbal unit and immediately purchased the gimbal shield.

    This shield is by SingaHobby in Singapore, the official distributor.

    Take a look at my video to see how it looks like

    Does it change the way it flies at all?

    I have no chance to test it yet. Its late now and i'll be busy the next few days. And since i just crashed, my next few flights will be very slow and low in case one of the components fail in mid air.

    It's something that will be permanent for me though, i dont want another broken gimbal again.
