    Is it ok to put loctite on the threads of my AVL58 TX to keep the antenna screwed in tight?

    Also ... are there thumbscrews for the Zemuse gimbal holding the Gopro?

    A very small amount of blue Loctite on the drop screws for the gimbal worked very well for me. Just don't let the Loctite touch the shell at all. I am not sure about the antenna threads. I use a small wrench to make sure that is tight and haven't found a need for the Loctite.

    well the gimbal screws i was wondering of there are thumbscrews that work for easier release. I was just on vacation and forgot my hex driver :p

    my antenna is right hand angle... loosens easily.
