    If your fitting your GoPro to the gimbal why not make yourself a "LayerLens" using your none used gimbal case... I dont use it anywhere else apart from my quad..!!
    Just unscrew it from the waterproof case.. ! - Simples.... :shock:

    Just needs a thin layer of tape to fix tight to the around the lens shroud on the Gopro to make a tighter fit and balance on the gimbal isn't altered either...

    Great idea, thanks for posting it.

    Has anyone tried the filters from Formatt-Hitech? Looks like they might work well using the lens port from the waterproof case. Maybe lighter than PolarPro?

    Does the lens "cover" also act as a lens hood to prevent propeller flash?
