    Just noticed my P2V + had 2 safety pins going through gimble grommets diagonally. My P3A has 4 safety pins but my P2 Vision has none. Maybe not needed due to how the camera mount is so strong

    Your P3 should only have 2 (diagonally).

    Slight increase of chance of vibration in your videos...other than that shouldn't be a problem.
    DJI recommend 2.

    I never really thought about it way back and just put some zip ties in and it never has came off cept that time I clipped that tree,
    Oh yea and that other time it fell out of a tree .Think it might have came off a few other times but I don't remember . :)
