    I got one of the red 'Remove before flight' keychain tags that some people attach to the gimbal lock as a reminder to remove it before flight. How do you attach it? I don't see anything where I could attach it to on the stock gimbal lock piece. Would I drill a hole near the edge and use that?

    But when I use the one that came with the phantom I drilled a small hole in the corner at the front.

    Use a power drill and drill a hole where you think fits and works best for you. I also put a reminder sticker on my drone to remind me not to put the battery in until I take off the gimbal clamp.

    There are many things to follow before you power p3 on, how would you tie so many tags?

    Yes, but he's just specifically talking about the gimbal clamp.

    I have the same lock but the key ring fit over the plastic neck. So no drilling.

    Ditto, I drilled a hole in the original gymbal support. Looks great.
