    Does anyone know if there is a LONGER Gimbel ribbon to cut down on possible snapping?

    Thanks.

    I have an item on ebay that will cut down on snapping. It keeps the camera from separating. It will keep your camera from bouncing around the concrete. The next problem is separation of the gimbal. In addition to the two plastic pins in the anti drop kit, I would recommend using a couple of small nylon wire ties in the empty spots with slack so as not to cause vibration. These two things will cut down on repair/replacement of the camera and gimbal in most crash scenarios. Of course if you free fall a couple of hundred feet onto concrete, you are toast. If you go full speed into a brick wall, I wouldn't give you much of a shot either. But in the crash I had, this bracket would have saved my camera and gimbal.
