    So, the gimbal lock that comes with the phantom is annoying to put on and take off. I feel like im going to scratch it up or rip the ribbon cable if i don't do it properly.

    So, i just was thinking and made a cheap alternative to the gimbal lock that is much easier to use and i don't have to worry about breaking my gimbal and camera with it.

    Here's the quick video on it

    Just to over complicate your Idea, I think I may try yours ,but, I will have it go to both legs. In an upsidedown V shape and maybe us a little velcro.
    I like your way.
    Thank you for the video.

    Keep in mind that only super glue will keep the hold well between the zip tie and plastic lens protector

    That is exactly what I ended up doing. Much more stable now. It's perfect.

    The only time I'll use the gimbal lock that came with is during rough transportation like hiking, etc. [attachment=-1]uploadfromtaptalk1418723796953.jpg[/attachment]
