    I just noticed that there's a screw missing from my gimbal. Does anyone else have this? [attachment=-1]uploadfromtaptalk1417495815981.jpg[/attachment]

    On mine, the hole appears to have threads, but it's hard to tell for sure. Mine does not presently contain a screw, and I can't say that one was ever there. I've had my P2V+ since August/50 flights or so. Haven't noticed any odd behavior with the gimbal.

    I have seen dozens of this gimbal and none have had the screw. I dont know what it was intended for.

    Is that one of the 3 screws that holds the pitch motor in place?

    Eyecon82, are you sure it is missing? I looked at mine but needed a magnified glass to see it as it is so small.

    Actually, now that I look at it more closely, I can tell it's not one of the 3 motor screws. In fact I don't remember there being a screw (or a hole) where there is in that image on my gimbal. I've taken it all apart, so I'd think I'd have seen it.
